If you want a no-fuss Brussels sprouts recipe that can be made ahead of time then this is the one for you. Baked in a creamy sauce, these Brussels sprouts can be kept warm in a low oven covered with foil until you are ready to serve them. Alternatively, they can be prepared in advance ready to pop into the oven as the turkey comes out to rest.
In Sweden these are eaten with most meals of the day. Making them at home is incredibly easy and, best of all, crisp bread can be stored for months in an airtight container. The Swedes use a kruskavel (a rolling pin with large studs) to roll out their crisp bread, resulting in small dimples all across the surface. A similar effect can be achieved by dotting the surface with a fork.
Turkey is now available all year round but I associate this dish with Christmas. This is my favourite roast stuffed turkey recipe. You may think the stuffing seems dull because it doesn't include exotic-sounding ingredients like chestnuts and spiced sausage meat, but in fact it is moist and full of the flavour of fresh herbs and the turkey juices. Cook a chicken in exactly the same way but use one-quarter of the stuffing quantity given.
