Sage is a classic herb combination with turkey, and the smell will likely remind you of the holidays. This is an easy way to make use of the inexpensive cuts of turkey you often find at the grocery store.
2 turkey legs
2 large turkey legs
1 tablespoon melted butter or coconut oil
1-2 teaspoons Herb Salt Blend made with sage
Black pepper to taste
High in tryptophan, selenium, vitamins B3 and B6, turkey is an excellent source of protein that is often overlooked outside of Thanksgiving. Keep an eye out for great deals on ground turkey, legs, or breast meat year-round. Opt for pasture-raised sources whenever possible . Fresh is always better than frozen.
CHANGE IT UP
Substitute chicken legs if you prefer. Pair the turkey with Cranberry Sauce and Mashed Faux-Tatoes for an anytime feast.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Brush the turkey legs with melted butter or coconut oil and season them generously with the Sage Salt Blend. Place the turkey legs in a shallow oven-safe roasting dish and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the foil and continue to bake until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 165°F (another 15-30 minutes).
