Nonnos Christmas Roast Turkey

Ingredients (serves 10)

  • 1 (8kg) Turkey
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup White wine
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • Dash Black pepper
  • 1 spoon Fresh Oregano
  • 1 cup Water


  1. Mix balsamic vinegar , olive oil , lemon juice , salt, oregano and white wine in a bowl
  2. Pour it over the turkey and cover it in foil and leave in the fridge over night
  3. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius the next day then pour one cup of water in the tray put turkey in oven. Let it cook for 2/12 hours slowly and keep basting turkey with its own juices from tray . When the chicken wings start to cook cover them with foil as they will burn. Turn turkey over and baste and cook for another hour. If juices are drying up then pour most of the juices in a bowl to retain it. The last hour remove outer foil but leave foil in wings and the fourth hour it should be ready but remember ever oven is different. When it's golden take out of oven and let it rest for 30-40 min then cut turkey and pour juices over the top of the turkey Breast . You will be licking your lips

  • This would he a really nice dish to serve at that time of year and loved by everyone thanks


  • This went down really well at Christmas and no leftovers either. Some even chew on the bones.


  • I have always wonder how to cook a turkey and wanted to make for Christmas lunch, great I now have a recipe to uae


  • Turkey is awesome over Christmas, it’s the only time we usually eat Turkey. Thanks for your Nonnos version of making Christmas Roast Turkey.


  • This would be great to make over the festive season.


  • This marinade sounds amazing – will definitely give this one a go!


  • I love balsamic sounds lovely thankyou


  • With my hosting this year, this will come in handy for me.


  • Best ever turkey I cooked – put whole turkey into oven at midnight at 100 degrees. Go to bed. Next morning remove perfectly cooked and moist turkey from oven around 8 am and then roast your pork, and chicken for roasting around 10, and add vegetables for roasting around 11am.
    At midday everything is cooked to perfection. About 20 minutes prior to dishing up either steam some veg. [cauliflower, beans, peas, etc.] or make a fresh salad.
    No fuss, no stress, and everyone will be happy.


  • Its great with roast Vegies, they tend to be the favourite part of a roast


  • Great recipe but I get very sleepy after a yummy Roast Turkey


  • the marinade sounds lovely, but I like a really brown crispy skinned roast bird!
