Oven Roasted Turkey Legs

Here you have a great alternative for your Thanksgiving dinner! Enjoy!

Serves 3-4
  • 5 lbs. Turkey legs and thighs
  • 2-3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons dehydrated Onion
  • Salt and Black Pepper to taste
  • 2/3 tablespoon ground Sage
  • 2/3 Tablespoons ground Thyme
  • 2/3 tablespoons dry Rosemary
  • 2 Tablespoons Mrs. Dash seasoning (optional)

Rinse the turkey pieces with cold water and dry them really well with paper towels.

In a small bowl combine all the dry herbs and seasonings, together with the butter and olive oil. Cook in microwave for about 1 or 2 minutes or until the butter is melted. Mix well and set aside.

Loosen up the skin from the turkey pieces a little bit,  and with a knife poke the flesh of the turkey pieces (avoiding the skin).

Season the turkey pieces with the butter mixture, make sure to season really well over and under the skin of the turkey, and on all sides.  Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. (marinate for more time if you have more time, over night will be perfect!!!)

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cook the turkey pieces for 1:30 hours, or until well cooked. The internal temperature of the meat should be 175ºF.  (Baste the turkey pieces every 30 minutes or so!)

Baste one more time before serving. Enjoy!!
