  • 5 pounds whole turkey (or something in similar size)
  • 1/2 onions (medium)
  • 1 lemon (medium)
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 3 stalks spring onions (or something in similar size)
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or something in similar size)
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons herb seasoning (or something in similar size)
  • turkey (Leftover Innards of)
  • 1/3 cup chicken stock
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon worchestershire
  • 2 spring onions
  • 3 brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons bacon fat
  • 1/2 gravy (the amount of
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  • Preheat your oven to 325F.
  • Stuff the turkey with all of the ingredients listed.
  • Mix together the coating ingredients and then pour over the entire outside of the turkey.
  • Make sure everything is coated (make more if needed).
  • Bake turkey for 2 1/2 hours (you may need to cook it longer depending on the size - you want 165F internal temperature) .
  • In the meantime, boil the turkey innards in 3 cups water and 1/3 cup chicken broth.
  • Bring to a rolling boil and then reduce heat down to medium-low so it continues to simmer for about an hour.
  • Add a few brussels sprouts, spring onion, Worcestershire and salt and pepper to the gravy.
  • Boil for 30-45 minutes more and then blend with an immersion blender.
  • At this point, you can split the gravy in half (I have non-keto family that wanted it their way) or keep it the same.
  • Before the turkey is going to come out of the oven, add spices (except xanthan gum) and cream to gravy and bring to a full boil.
  • Continuously stir and let it reduce over the next 15-20 minutes.
  • Once it gets to a good consistency (relatively thick), add the xanthan gum and mix it all well.
  • Let turkey rest and then pour pan drippings into gravy for a richer sauce.
