Roast Turkey Leg Recipe

Turkeys aren’t for Thanksgiving only nor turkey legs are confined to Disney land exclusively. Tasty and easy roast turkey leg recipe for home!

As I recently have some time, I had been surfing on the internet the other day. In search of fresh, fascinating ideas, inspiring meals that I’ve never tasted before, to surprise my loved ones with. Looking for a while unfortunately could not come across too many interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this scrumptious and simple dessert simply by chance. The dessert seemed so scrumptious on its pic, it required prompt action.

It had been not so difficult to imagine how it is created, how it tastes and just how much my hubby might want it. Mind you, it is very easy to delight the guy in terms of puddings. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I got into the blog: Suncakemom and then used the simple instuctions that have been combined with nice pictures of the operation. It just makes life much simpler. I could suppose it is a slight effort to take snap shots in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may most often have gross hands and so i genuinely appreciate the hard work she devote to build this post and recipe conveniently implemented.

Having said that I’m encouraged to present my own, personal recipes similarly. Thanks for the idea.

I was fine tuning the main formula to make it for the taste of my family. I can mention it absolutely was a great outcome. They enjoyed the taste, the consistency and loved getting a treat like this in the midst of a lively workweek. They ultimately asked for even more, more and more. Hence next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am going to double the volume .

Clean the legs from remaining feathers if there are any then place them onto a tray.

Sprinkle salt over them then flip them over and apply salt again.

Clean the garlic cloves, cut them in half along the long side then slice long square based stripes out of them. As we are going to stick these into the meat mind not to cut them too thin.

Make narrow holes into the thighs.

Stick the garlic sticks there. It should be done on both sides around 6-8 holes in total.

Sprinkle spices and herbs of choice that will provide additional flavors to the dish on top like parsley, paprika or onions and carrot.

Close the top of the tray and put it into the 325°F-350°F / 160°-180°C preheated oven for 45 minutes.

After 45 minutes take the top off.

Add more vegetables if desired which can be served as side dish with the turkey legs. It’s an optional step that can be left out entirely or done right before the meat was placed into the oven the first time. It all depends on the texture of the vegetables we are after. The less time in the oven the less soft the vegetables will be. Try to move the vegetables around the meat to allow the direct air flow.

Roast for 30 minutes more then move the tray to the topmost rack in the oven. Move the turkey legs over the vegetables if necessary and roast until the meat gets a golden brown color then flip them over to do the other side as well for about 15 minutes.
