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 most recently have a little time, I had been searching on the internet a few days ago. Trying to get fresh, stirring thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never tested before, to surprise my family with. Hunting for a while but couldn’t find any interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came across this delicious and simple treat by accident on Suncakemom. It seemed so tempting
on its pic, that required urgent actions.
It was simple enough to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and how much my hubby is going to love it. Actually, it is very easy to please the guy when it comes to treats. Anyways, I visited the page and followed the step-by-step instuctions that have been combined with superb pictures of the task. It really makes life rather easy. I could suppose it’s a slight inconvenience to shoot snap shots in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you most often have sticky hands so I seriously appreciate the time and energy she placed in to build this blogpost .
Having said that I am empowered presenting my own, personal recipe in a similar fashion. Many thanks the concept.
I was tweaking the original mixture to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I can say it had been a great success. They loved the taste, the consistency and enjoyed having a treat like this in the middle of a lively week. They quite simply wanted even more, a lot more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna twin the amount .
Many Thanks to Suncakemom for the cool roast turkey Leg recipe.
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.
