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 currently have some time, I was searching on the web yesterday. Trying to get new, exciting ideas, inspirational meals that I have never tried before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for a long time unfortunately couldn’t come across too many interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this delightful and simple dessert simply by chance. The dessert seemed so mouth-watering on its photo, that required instant actions.

It absolutely was easy to imagine the way it is made, how it tastes and how much my husband might like it. Actually, it is very easy to impress the man in terms of treats. Anyhow, I visited the website: Suncakemom and then followed the comprehensive instuctions that have been accompanied by superb photographs of the process. It really makes life quite easy. I can imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to take photographs down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may will often have gross hands thus i really appreciate the time and effort she placed in to make this blogpost .

That being said I’m empowered to present my personal dishes in the same way. Many thanks for the idea.

I was tweaking the initial recipe create it for the taste of my family. I must tell you it absolutely was a great outcome. They enjoyed the taste, the structure and loved getting a treat like this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They ultimately asked for more, a lot more. Thus the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I am likely to double the quantity .

This baked turkey legs in oven recipe was provided to us by 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.
