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 lately have some time, I had been looking on the internet last week. Trying to get fresh, challenging tips, inspirational recipes that We have never tasted before, to surprise my loved ones with. Hunting for a long time unfortunately could not find lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this delightful and simple dessert simply by chance. The dessert seemed so fabulous on its photos, that called for fast action.

It was simple enough to imagine just how it is created, its taste and just how much boyfriend might love it. Mind you, it is rather easy to delight the guy in terms of treats. Anyway, I visited the blog: Suncakemom and simply used the step by step instuctions that had been combined with impressive shots of the procedure. It really makes life much easier. I can imagine that it’s a slight hassle to shoot snap shots down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may typically have gross hands so I pretty appreciate the time and effort she placed in to make this post .

Having said that I’m inspired presenting my own recipes similarly. Thanks for the idea.

I was fine tuning the initial recipe create it for the taste of my family. I have to tell you that it was an awesome outcome. They loved the flavor, the overall look and loved having a sweet like this in the middle of a hectic week. They ultimately wanted lots more, a lot more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same mistake. I am going to double the amount .

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.
