Turkey Drumsticks are a quick alternative to cooking a whole turkey. The dark meat is super moist and very easy to prepare and cook. We always feel like we are releasing our mini inner grok and grokess 🙂
when we sit at the table and hold a turkey leg … kind of fun and prehistoric. We love our meats and throw in some chicken and seafood here and there, but it’s nice to have an alternative. Turkey drumsticks are available in just about every store, are easily found to be organic and are extremely affordable, actually down right cheap!
Ingredients that you will need:
- 5 turkey drumsticks
- 1 tbsp caraway seeds
- 1/4 tbsp (to taste) sea salt
- 6 cloves of freshly chopped garlic
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups water
- black pepper to taste
- couple of fresh rosemary twigs
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees, place drumsticks into a non-stick roasting pan if you have one; a regular one will do just fine. Rub legs with all ingredients above, add water and begin to bake. It should be very easy from here on out, cooking time is about an hour or until the meat thermometer reads 180 degrees. Rotate only once half way through cooking time and baste with juices from the herbs and water.
This is what they’ll look like; the meat should just about fall off the bone. Yummm, serve with your favorite veggie or a nice green salad.
Looking forward to your comments!
WOW, thank you, it looks easy and healthy! I can’t wait to try this when my oven gets repaired (we’ve been grilling all week). BTW, love the picture of Henry 🙂
Those look mouth-wateringly delicious! I usually make the turkey breasts for a week’s worth of lunchmeat, but this looks fabulous and easy for dinner. I am amazed you achieved that much browning without any oil. I’ll have to give these a try! Thank you for the recipe!
