Turkey cranberry and black pudding festive parcels

parcels1

This post has long been remiss, back in the now feeling long distant summer, I was given some intriguing wood paper to cook food in from the lovely people at The Roasting Plank Company  to have a play with and see what I came up with, I really wanted to do something special with the beech wood paper, and until now the recipe had eluded me, but Christmas is a time for presents…isn’t it??

So after soaking the wood paper for a couple of hours, I made up a couple of lovely parcels using a turkey breast escalope, a slice of bury black pudding crumbled into the middle and a tablespoon of cranberry sauce to sweeten things up. I then rolled the escalope up and wrapped with smoked streaky bacon, before wrapping in the wood paper and securing with a bow using butchers string.

Cook on a medium hot BBQ indirectly for 20-30 mintutes with the lid on. Or if it’s abit cold then place on a hot griddle for 5 minutes each side, to start the wood smoking a little, and then pop into a preheated oven to 200degC for 15-20 minutes until cooked through and the bacon becomes crisp.

The turkey stays lovely and moist, and picks up a lovely sweet smoky taste from the wood paper.

You could vary this recipe, with chicken breast, blue cheese, bbq sauce, fish or vegetables, the choice is yours, there’s lots of great ideas on the roasting plank companies site.

Have a wonderful Christmas.

  3. What an intriguing tool for adding flavour! I’d not heard of wood paper before now. I can imagine it would be just amazing with white fish, too. I would guess that you wouldn’t want to use it with highly flavoured foods, as the effect is quite gentle?

  4. Oh my word that looks good – definitely an appealing way to prepare turkey… It’s usually so dull.

  5. That’s a good way to improve the turkey 😉
