What is a Turkey Crown?
A turkey crown is the breast of the bird, still on the bone, with the legs and wings removed. This makes it incredibly easy to carve up on Christmas day and minimises waste. You get double turkey breasts with a lot of meat. They’re perfect for families who prefer breast meat, especially if you have fussy children!
The great thing about a turkey crown is that you can still cook the turkey on the bone, the more traditional method that results in more succulent meat.
