Roast Turkey Legs with Onions and Cinzano Recipe

Roast Turkey Legs with Onions and Cinzano Recipes

Ingredients :

2 turkey legs, totally thawed if frozen

10 small white boiling onions, peeled and left whole, or 4 medium-size onions, peeled and cut in half

8 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole

1 cup Cinzano

salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme; or 1 tsp dried

Method :

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the turkey legs in a medium-size roasting pan. Surround them with the onions and garlic and pour the Cinzano on top. Season well with salt, pepper and thyme. Roast the turkey and vegetables, basting occasionally and stirring the onions and garlic once so they brown evenly, until the drumsticks feel tender when pressed and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, about 1 hour.

Makes 2-4 servings

Around Thanksgiving, when fresh-killed turkeys appear in just about every butcher shop in town, you might want to think about buying an extra bird and either freezing it whole or having the butcher cut it into small serving pieces and then freezing them so you can enjoy turkey throughout the year.

These turkey legs are superb roasted with small white boiling onions and a splash of Cinzano, or sweet vermouth. You can substitute red wine mixed with 2 tbsp honey to duplicate the sweet, intense flavor of Cinzano. You can also use 1 pound of chicken legs, instead of the turkey.
