Rosemary Roasted Turkey Leg

I adore turkey!

In the 4 years I have spent with my ex, I have always looked forward to enjoy the turkey he made for thanksgiving. It was the best turkey I have ever had!

For some reasons, that I completely ignore, finding turkey in China is not easy and they are mostly available only during the Xmas and Thanksgiving holidays.

Among the products I have had the pleasure to taste from there was also a turkey leg from the US! Big and juicy!

I have never baked turkey meat before as my ex was the one in charge of this when we were together. This was my first attempt and I can say it was quite good!

This recipe is very easy and calls for just a few ingredients. Enjoy!

Ingredients (one turkey leg):

  • 1 bottle of dry white wine
  • 1 turkey leg
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp fresh or dry rosemary
  • 1 tbsp seasoning blend
  •  1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cup vegetable broth

Take the turkey leg and braise it overnight in white wine, 2 chopped garlic cloves and rosemary


The following morning place the leg together with all the rosemary that is sticking on it on a baking tray that you have previously greased with 1 tbsp of olive oil

Sprinkle the top with some seasoning blend and bake it at 200 C for about 1.5 h pouring some vegetable broth from time to time

Remove from the oven and serve!

Oh this is heaven!
