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 a little time, I had been looking on the web yesterday. In search of fresh, exciting thoughts, inspirational meals that I’ve never tested before, to amaze my family with. Hunting for a while yet could not find lots of interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this fabulous and easy treat by accident on Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so fabulous on its snapshot, it called for prompt action.
It had been not difficult to imagine the way it is made, its taste and how much my hubby will enjoy it. Mind you, it is very simple to keep happy the man in terms of treats. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I got into the website and used the detailed instuctions that were accompanied by great graphics of the process. It just makes life much easier. I can suppose it is a slight effort to shoot photographs in the middle of baking in the kitchen because you will often have gross hands so that i sincerely appreciate the hard work she put in for making this blogpost and recipe easily implemented.
With that said I am inspired presenting my own formulas in a similar way. Appreciate your the concept.
I was fine tuning the initial formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to say that it was an awesome success. They loved the taste, the thickness and loved getting a delicacy such as this in the middle of a hectic workweek. They ultimately wanted more, many more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m gonna double the amount to make them pleased.

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.
