- Preheat oven to 190°C or 170°C fan-forced. Place turkey (still wrapped in the packaging foil) on a baking tray. Bake for 45 minutes. Turn and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle with rind, rosemary and oil. Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Cover loosely with foil to rest for 10 minutes before thickly slicing.
- Meanwhile, line a baking tray with baking paper. Place potatoes and pumpkin on prepared tray and bake with turkey for the last 45–50 minutes of cooking or until vegetables are tender and golden.
- Meanwhile, place milk, onion, bay leaf and cloves in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes. Strain milk mixture and discard solids. When ready to serve, reheat milk mixture and stir in breadcrumbs.
- Combine ¼ cup (60ml) stock with cornflour in a bowl. Place remaining stock and jelly in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil. Add cornflour mixture and stir to combine. Boil, stirring, for 1 minute or until gravy thickens slightly. Serve turkey with vegetables, bread sauce and gravy.
