  4. Double line a baking loaf tin with a dash of olive oil and spread around the bottom and sides of the tray to help the baking paper stick to the tray, then add the baking paper and spread a little oil on the bottom of the paper and place the turkey mince evenly on the bottom building up the sides and then press flat so you have no air bubbles
  5. Place your baking loaf in a preheated oven of 200 degrees for roughly 40 minutes or until the meat is cooked and coming away from the sides of the tray (there will be quite a bit of juice you can use in gravy)
