A Fast And Yummy Turkey Recipe That Everyone Will Love
Roasted Turkey Legs
If all your family members are constantly fighting over drumsticks, then maybe it would be smart to avoid preparing the entire turkey and just focus on the legs. If you’re not sure they are going to love it, yet you want to make something that involves turkey, then you should check this recipe if something spicy is on your mind. Now, let’s go back to our legs.
Turkey Recipe Ingredients:
- Five to six turkey legs
- ¼ cup of butter, softened
- ¼ tsp of pepper
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of dried thyme
- ½ cup of chicken broth
- The Bronx Green Hot Sauce
Grab all the ingredients and preheat your oven to 350 F. Tap the legs dry by utilizing a paper towel and then put them in a big roasting pan. Do not rinse the meat in the sink because if you do so, you are going to spread bacteria in the kitchen.
Make a compound butter by pairing softened butter with pepper, salt, poultry seasoning, and thyme, and place all these ingredients in a smaller bowl. Rub this combination over the turkey legs.
Now, if you want this to be even more delicious, then you can rub it on the flesh as well, precisely, under the skin.
Anything Else That Needs To Be Done?
Pour the broth into the frying pan around the poultry legs. This step is going to keep the moisture. Roast the legs for up to one hour and forty minutes, or until you notice that your thermometer is at 170 F.
Once that happens, remove the frying pan from your oven and place the foil over your dish and let it cool for around ten minutes. When it comes to serving, you can slice the turkey or serve whole legs and top the meat with hot sauce (for those who love spicy things). It’s not a must. Serve the dish with some lovely, refreshing salad of your choosing.
