Roast Turkey Thigh Roll

Roast Turkey Thigh Roll

There’s nothing I love better than a roast dinner, especially when half the work is already done for you. A roast turkey thigh roll is quick and easy to prepare – in fact, it’s already prepared and seasoned for you. The hardest part is having to wait the 90 minutes until it’s cooked.

If you’re making a roast then it’s logical that you would also make a few roast vegetables to go with your meal. You could be a bit different and serve it with honey glazed carrots and hasselback potatoes. However, if you’re short on time, you can serve this thigh roll with a simple garden salad and it will still be a satisfying meal. A perfect dessert would be a vanilla magic cake, Christmas pudding or pavlova.
