It's a hefty weight on the host's shoulders to get spot on - serving up a juicy bird along with all the other seasonal favourites takes a lot of time and effort.

Undercook your bird and the obvious risk is making everyone ill, but overcooking it could not only leave you with a burnt disaster of a dish but also extremely dry meat.

Luckily for you, a chef is here with her top tips for cooking a delicious turkey.

Poppy O’Toole posts her food hacks to her TikTok account @poppycooks, where she has a whopping 2.7million followers and an impressive 47.1million likes.

The Michelin-trained chef and self-proclaimed ‘potato queen’ recently took to the social media app to share how to ensure that you cook a delicious turkey, bound to leave your loved ones impressed this festive season. 

She uploaded her turkey clip with the caption ‘To anyone in charge of making the turkey this year… remember to DRY BRINE!’.

She said: “If you are making a turkey this year, or someone else you know is, then send them this video as these are my two tips to get you a delicious, moist, succulent, moist, moist turkey, and that’s exactly what you want.

“We’re going to do a dry brine - this is tip number one, dry brining.

“So, get some salt, sugar, herbs including rosemary and thyme and mixed spice to add a bit of extra flavour.

“All I’m going to do is dry the turkey off, separate the skin from the flesh, so get your hand in there.

“Then you’re going to leave it in the fridge, covered, for three days.

“Then tip number two - a compound butter, which I will show you in the next video, to get the most perfect, delicious turkey ever”.

In the second video, Poppy explained how she makes her compound butter. 

She continued: “It’s time for the second part of my moist, moist, moist turkey.

“You’ve dry brined and now it's here for the compound butter.

“This is going to help bring flavour and moisture throughout your bird.

“I’ve got some herbs - rosemary, thyme and garlic.

“Really mush that all up, then add a bit of lemon and orange zest for some festive flavour and some softened butter.

“Mix it until it all comes together and I like to add some juice as well.

“Then push in the compound butter inbetween the skin and the flesh.

“Then put lemon, apple, onion and stalks of the herbs inside.

“Get it into the oven to cook and this will give you that moist, moist turkey”.

TikTok users were extremely impressed with Poppy’s top tips and her original turkey video has racked up a whopping 846.5k views.

It has 71.8k likes, 517 comments and 2,083 shares.

Many TikTok fans appreciated Poppy’s advice and took to the comments to express this. 

One person said: “I don’t even like turkey but this has made me hungry!”

My ‘secret weapon’ makes cleaning fabric furniture easier – and you already have it in your kitchen cabinets

A CLEANING expert shared her go-to tool for cleaning couches, chairs, and other upholstered surfaces.

Her secret weapon is so budget-friendly, you don't even need to buy anything: just head to your kitchen.

4Brittany Kruger is a home pro who shared her hack for cleaning upholstered furnitureCredit: TikTok/@bettercleaningbritt 4Her secret weapon is super simple – and you already have it in your kitchenCredit: TikTok/@bettercleaningbritt

Brittany Kruger, known on TikTok by her handle BetterCleaningBritt, has plenty of pro-level secrets for keeping your home tidy.

But you don't need to be an expert like Kruger to use her hacks to get your home sparkling.

In one video, she showed how easy it can be to deep-clean the fibers on upholstered furniture like sofas.

The hot hack went viral on #CleanTok, the section of TikTok dedicated to effortless cleaning strategies anyone can try at home.

First, Kruger mixed together a solution of Fabuloso mult-surface cleaner and hot water.

After diluting the detergent and stirring thoroughly, she soaked a microfiber cloth in the mixture.

She squeezed out most of the liquid, leaving the cloth damp, before grabbing her secret weapon from the kitchen.

Kruger picked out a handled pot lid from her cookware set.

A small pot or pan lid will work fine for this hack – while a larger lid will cover more surface area, a smaller one can work into nooks and crannies.

Kruger folded the damp rag over the pot lid, tucking the corners around the handle.

With the cloth stretched over the lid, Kruger had a wide scrubber to work the cleaning solution into the couch fabric.

She used a combination of wide, sweeping motions and small circles to clean the fabric.

The handle gives plenty of leverage to work out stubborn stains or matted fibers.

If you try this hack at home, make sure to rinse the cloth thoroughly before placing it over the pot lid again to do a final scrub and remove any residue.

Once the couch is clean, just let it dry – no vacuuming or blow-drying necessary. The upholstery should look almost new.

Just make sure to rinse the pot lid before you cook with it again to avoid the risk of your pasta dinner tasting like Fabuloso.
