I'm a chef and there's two ingredients you need to add to your Christmas turkey – forget the butter if you want it moist | The Sun

WITH Christmas fast approaching and millions of families busy with the preparations, there’s a lot to organise.

For those who are cooking Christmas dinner on the big day, the one thing on their mind will be the turkey and how to perfect the bird for their guests.

Luckily for you, a chef has shared her fool-proof hack for basting her turkey – and it doesn't include the classic butter element.

The woman, known as Chef Moise, has amassed 853.4k followers on TikTok and recently took to the video sharing platform to share her unusual method for turkey basting, leaving many very impressed.

In the video, she said: "Why are no chefs or content creators talking about the faill-proof turkey baste that will guarantee a juicy tender turkey every time.

"Of course there are a million turkey recipes out there but for some reason none of these chefs are using this special paste.

"No shade to the compound butter on turkey lovers, butter is a great addition to turkey, but personally I think the best way to make turkey is using mayo.

“That’s right, half mayo and half yoghurt.” 

In the clip, we see the chef mix together a bowl of half mayonnaise and half yoghurt to create the baste for her turkey.

She explains that she uses this instead of butter, as it will retain moisture for longer, so when you incorporate the spices, all of that flavour will absorb on the skin and underneath.

She explained: “It will retain itself so much longer than butter. 

"Because the oil is going to separate from the mayo, you are going to get extra crispy skin guaranteed.”

In the clip, she smears the mayonnaise and yoghurt paste over the turkey to give it a glowing exterior before putting it in the oven to get the crispy skin.

The clip has left many very impressed, as it has quickly gone viral and racked up a staggering 10.2million views.

It has 725.4k likes, 4,544 comments and 11.3k shares.

The savvy chef confirmed in a follow-up video that the bird won't taste like mayo if you use her recipe, as it cooks down and the spices are the dominant flavour.

TikTok users loved her recipe and were eager to reflect this in the comments. 

One person wrote: "Makes so much sense. Mayo is used to create a crust and yoghurt is there to tenderise. This is smart."

While another said: "I used mayo six years ago and it was the best turkey I ever had! I never looked back."
