    Swapped turkey thighs for the drumsticks and colourful heirloom carrots for the baby carrots....might make a quick batch of stuffing to go with it. Can't wait for supper!

    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.

    Made no changes and it ess good. I only rated it a 4 for I prefer white meat. My husband loves the dark, thus why I made this, so he was very happy.

    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.
