As I recently have some time, I had been browsing on the internet last week. Looking for fresh, intriguing thoughts, inspirational dishes that I have never tested before, to amaze my family with. Hunting for quite some time yet could not find too many interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I found this fabulous and easy dessert simply by accident on Suncakemom. It looked so delightful on its snapshot, that called for instant action.

It absolutely was simple enough to imagine just how it’s made, its taste and just how much my hubby will love it. Actually, it is very simple to impress the guy in terms of puddings. Anyway, I went to the website and simply followed the step-by-step instuctions that have been coupled with great graphics of the procedure. It really makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to take photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen because you ordinarily have gross hands therefore i sincerely appreciate the hard work she placed in to build this blogpost and recipe easily implemented.

Having said that I am empowered to present my own, personal formulas in a similar way. Appreciate your the concept.

I was tweaking the main recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I can tell you it was an awesome success. They enjoyed the flavor, the overall look and loved having a delicacy like this in the midst of a lively workweek. They ultimately wanted even more, a lot more.

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.
