Step 1: You will need

  • 1 roast turkey
  • 1 freshly roasted turkey
  • 1 sharp knife
  • 2 cutting boards
  • 1 fork

Step 2: Remove the wishbone

Remove a little skin from the base of the turkey's breast. Cut around the V-shaped wishbone and pull it out carefully so as not to damage the meat.

Step 3: Carve the legs

Next, cut along the turkey's hip joint with your knife, letting the leg slowly separate from the body and remove the leg completely from the joint. Cut the leg at its knee joint and set both pieces aside. Repeat for the other leg.

Step 4: Carve the breasts

Cut into the bird along side of its breastbone. Angle the knife and cut the meat away from the carcass, cutting through the wing joint. The breast should come easily away from the body. Repeat for the other side.

Step 5: Slice the breasts

Cut off the wing tips from the breasts and slice the remaining meat against its grain.


Don't throw away any of the bones! You can use them for a tasty turkey soup, the recipe for which can also be found on our website.

Step 7: Serve

Your tender holiday turkey is now ready for the table.
