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 a little time, I was surfing on the internet yesterday. On the lookout for new, challenging ideas, inspirational recipes that I have never tasted before, to amaze my loved ones with. Searching for a while but couldn’t find lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this yummy and easy treat simply by chance. The dessert looked so mouth-watering on its pic, it required immediate actions.

It was not difficult to imagine the way it’s created, how it tastes and how much my hubby is going to like it. Mind you, it is very simple to please the man in terms of cakes. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyways, I got into the blog: Suncakemom and followed the precise instuctions which were coupled with impressive images of the process. It really makes life quite easy. I could suppose it is a bit of a effort to take snap shots down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you normally have gross hands thus i seriously appreciate the effort and time she put in to build this blogpost .

Having said that I am encouraged to present my personal formulas in a similar way. Many thanks for the thought.

I was fine tuning the original formula create it for the taste of my family. I have to say it absolutely was an incredible success. They loved the flavour, the overall look and enjoyed getting a delicacy like this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They quite simply wanted lots more, a lot more. Thus the next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the amount to keep them delighted.

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.
