Ingredients for Manuka Honey Glazed Turkey Legs
- Four, 13-ounce turkey drumsticks, bone-in
- Salt and pepper
- ¼ cup of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of thyme, dried
- 3 tablespoons of butter, melted
- ¼ cup of Manuka honey
- ¼ cup of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sage, chopped
- 2 teaspoons of basil, dried
- 1 tablespoon of rosemary, chopped
Directions for Manuka Honey Glazed Turkey Legs
- To begin, allow your drumsticks time to thaw in some hot water before preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place your drumsticks on a clean, dry work surface, perhaps a cutting board or a countertop. Coat the drumsticks with olive oil, using between one and two teaspoons for each piece. Season them with pepper, salt, and thyme before rubbing in.
- Move the drumsticks to a fairly spacious baking pan before drizzling them with the rest of your olive oil. Roast the drumsticks uncovered for about two hours.
- In a small bowl, add the melted butter, the Manuka honey, the soy sauce, the sage, the basil, and the rosemary, mixing them well until you get an even consistency.
- Coat your now roasted drumsticks using the honey-herb mixture. Use aluminum foil to cover your baking pan before returning it to your oven, roasting on the same temperature for another 15 minutes.
