|A pre-Thanksgiving treat|
3 turkey legs, skin on
1 stalk celery, cut into 3 pieces
1/2tsp garlic powder
1/2tsp onion powder
1tsp sea salt
fresh ground black pepper
2tbs butter, softened
1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Loosen the skin from the turkey. In a small bowl, combine your dry rub ingredients.
2. With your hands, generously rub the softened butter under the turkey skin, spreading it all around. Rub it over the top too. Take some of the dry rub and rub it under the skin evenly. Top the skin with salt and pepper. Repeat with each turkey leg.
3. Then, use a knife to make a slit down the meaty side of the leg. Stuff in a celery stalk in each leg.
4. Place in a roasting pan and cook for about an hour and a half (or until internal temp reaches 180F). Baste occasionally with the juices of the turkey (I had to use a basting brush because there wasn't much juice). Serve hot!
