Bacon Wrapped Turkey

Thanksgiving is all about the sides which means my oven isn’t big enough for all of that AND a turkey.  Therefore, I make bacon wrapped turkey on the hob.  Not only does this free up space for Cornbread Stuffing Muffins and Pecan Sweet Potatoes but also tastes better than a roast turkey. A mix of oranges, butter, maple syrup and streaky bacon make this a WOW main dish that is sweet, salty and juicy.  Perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
