    Monica Sheridan Stuffs the Lousiest Turkey Ever
  • Extended description

    'Evening Extra' presenter Siobhán Cleary gets Monica Sheridan to stuff a turkey for her in this Christmas cookery clip.

    Monica reminisces about her days as a chef on Telefís Éireann and how she was fired for licking her fingers. She isn't too happy about the turkey provided for the task at hand, calling it the lousiest turkey she has ever seen. She thinks it's too small too. But Monica perseveres, lacing the stuffing with her secret ingredient.
