Pastured Turkey Leg

We all love dark meat and drumsticks go very fast at Turkey dinners. Here is a great recipe to add more drumsticks to your holiday meal.


Macadamia nut oil or grass fed butter melted
4 1-pound pastured turkey drumsticks skin on
2 cups water

Seasoning mix:
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp. t-coons
½ Tbsp. paprika


1. Preheat the oven to 450̊ F.
2. Pat the turkey legs dry with paper towels. Brush them with melted butter or oil. Rub them with the seasoning mix. Place on the roasting pan and lightly spray with cooking spray. Pour water in pan, but not on the drumsticks.
3. Roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes, until the skin is browned.
4. Loosely cover with foil, to avoid scorching the top, and continue roasting until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork—about 30 more minutes.
5. Remove the turkey legs from the oven and allow them to rest, still covered in foil, for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with your favorite side dishes.
