The Christmas turkey is the centrepiece of your festive spread, so you want to make sure that you buy the best.

Whether you are feeding a crowd (lockdown rules permitting) or having a mini Christmas feast for two, we have selected the best turkeys on the market. Take a look at our comprehensive woman&home Christmas taste test to read about all of our other favourite festive products. 

How did we test the turkeys and decide on our winners? 

In our opinion the perfect turkey must have: a golden and crisp skin, moist and flavourful meat and a plump and tender texture so that is exactly what we looked out for throughout the testing process. To make the test fair we cooked each turkey according to it’s packet instructions and didn’t add any other flavours or ingredients to each bird. 

We have chosen products whose instructions were both easy to follow and resulting in a delicious turkey, however if you feel you need a little more guidance here is our perfect Christmas turkey recipe.
