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 most recently have a little time, I had been searching on the internet a few days ago. Looking to find fresh, exciting ideas, inspiring recipes that I have never tested before, to impress my loved ones with. Searching for a while unfortunately could not discover lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this delightful and easy treat simply by accident at Suncakemom. It looked so yummy on its photos, it called for prompt actions.

It had been simple enough to imagine how it is created, how it tastes and how much boyfriend might want it. Actually, it is extremely simple to delight the man in terms of cakes. Anyway, I visited the page and then used the step-by-step instuctions that have been coupled with great photographs of the procedure. It really makes life rather easy. I can suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot pics down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may will often have gross hands therefore i highly appreciate the commitment she put in to build this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.

That being said I am empowered presenting my own, personal recipe similarly. Many thanks the concept.

I had been fine tuning the main formula to make it for the taste of my family. I must say it had been an awesome outcome. They loved the flavour, the consistency and enjoyed getting a treat such as this in the midst of a stressful workweek. They ultimately requested more, a lot more. Hence next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I am going to twin the amount to get them pleased.

This recipe was inspired by roast turkey leg recipe from SunCakeMom

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.
