MAGAZINE: Phil Vickery makes the most of the Christmas Turkey with a marvellous Mac ‘n’ Cheese

One of the great benefits of roasting a whole succulent British turkey on Christmas Day is all the lovely leftovers! Phil Vickery shows you how to put a spin on a classic pasta dish for Boxing Day that uses both cooked turkey and even the stuffing so there’s no waste.

Instead of making the standard but rather uninteresting turkey sandwiches, why not have a funky turkey mac ‘n’ cheese for you and the family. This creamy, cheesy dish will have you drooling: all you need is one hour, a few basic ingredients and an empty tummy to fill, and in no time at all you could be making the most of your Christmas turkey and having a great dinnertime treat at the same time.

Phil is a fan of using British turkey in recipes as it is a great carrier flavours and recommends buying a whole bird at Christmas as both the breast and leg meat are so versatile and they are very economical too. If you have enough leftover why not make an extra turkey mac ‘n’ cheese for the freezer to eat another day?
