How to choose your turkey

All our turkeys come from trusted British M&S Select Farms. To keep it fuss-free, go for a prepared bird, like our new perfect turkey crown, which comes stock-basted with tasty stuffing. Traditionalists who love leftovers should opt for a whole bird, while for smaller celebrations, our alternatives, such as stuffed pheasants, are just the thing

The perfect turkey crown

For a totally foolproof Christmas centrepiece, it has to be our award-winning Collection perfect turkey crown. Our British Oakham turkey crown is stock-basted for succulence, and comes with a pork and cranberry stuffing, shallots and a bouquet garnis, rich brown butter under the skin, and a magic flavour bombe to boost your gravy. Available in store from 19 December.

Slow Cooked turkey legs

Slow-cooked to perfection 

Perfect for early Christmas dinners or smaller celebrations, our Slow Cooked British turkey legs are deliciously tender and are served with a rich gravy. Or if you fancy a change from turkey, try our Slow Cooked British pork belly that's cooked on the bone for succulence, scored and seasoned skin for the crispiest crackling and served with a pork and apple jus. 

Every one’s a cracker!

We’ve teamed up with 12 of the UK’s best-loved comedians to create what are – in our opinion – the world’s funniest crackers! Created to support our charity partner Together for Short Lives, they contain jokes from the likes of Paddy McGuinness, Dawn French and Omid Djalili. Plus, the crackers will help us donate £100,000 to the charity this Christmas! Now that’s something to smile about
