  • 1/4 cups butter
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 2 cups white wine
  • 250 grams ground beef

Fill the turkey with the previous meat mixture and salt and pepper the outside of the turkey.
Preheat the oven to 200 (392F)degrees.
Put the turkey in a bag or wrap in aluminum foil and make perforations so that the steam can escape.

With a culinary torch, or flame, brown the whole turkey so that it takes on a nice color.

For a juicier turkey it is recommended placing salt all over the skin of the turkey 1 day before and leave covered in the refrigerator.
