"I fixed this recipe exactly as noted yesterday for my husband and I to see if it was company worthy and we both agreed...ABSOLUTELY! It is so easy, so inexpensive, and SO delicious. The turkey was moist and flavorful. I will make it for our guests this weekend and expect to have requests for the recipe."

"I used two large turkey legs because that was all I had on hand. I was out of chicken broth, so I used a mug of boiling water and two chicken bouillon cubes. Tt was delicious."

"With the rising cost of food, I found this recipe to be inexpensive and good. My husband loved it, and so did I. I didn't make any changes to the recipe except that I had some fresh thyme on hand so used that instead of dried."

"This was sooooo yummy! I didn't sprinkle seasoning but rolled legs in it. Also, since there's no such thing as "baby" carrots, I cut carrots into cross-wise thirds, then into length-wise sticks. Have shared it with a friend & will surely make this again."

"Just what I was looking for! A whole turkey is just too much for me (I live alone), so turkey legs fill the bill. I can freeze the two extras for future meals."
