Roast Turkey Seasoning

Roast turkey seasoning will give turkey its unique taste. You will find it absolutely delicious. No need to consume it at once. It is great to serve cold as well.

Turkey is very lean; a good source of protein and it is great for weight loss especially when served with vegetables or salads only.

Roast Turkey Legs

Serves 4

Turkey Thigh, (breast or half turkey)

3-5 tbl spoons Olive Oil

Onion (1/4)

Garlic (1/4)



1 glass Water

Note: It is a good habit to use aluminium foil – it saves cleaning the tray.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit).

Place aluminium foil (optional) on a tray. Add onion and few cloves of garlic. Insert turkey leg (breast; or; half of turkey). Cover with olive oil (This will make herbs to stick easier).

Sprinkle with thyme and rosemary. (In case you use fresh ones from your garden, just cut these herbs into tiny pieces) Repeat from other side.

Insert into preheated oven. After 10-15 minutes add 1 glass of hot water. After about 25 minutes (depending on size) remove from oven and turn over.

Roast for another 20-30 minutes, check.

How to check the thing is ready??? Prick with a long needle deep inside the meat.

If clear juice is coming out it is ready. If the juice has red or pinkish colour it requires more cooking – it is raw inside.

IMPORTANT: Do not overcook - roast only until clear juice comes out, no longer, as this will result in dry meat (without juice).

Serve with cooked (steamed) or baked potatoes. Mashed potatoes or chips (French fries) are another option.
Depending on how much you want to cut on calories. Turkey is very lean, however, potatoes; especially chips have lots of calories.

It is great with salads or steamed vegies, or both.

If using breast only, this simple roast turkey recipe is great for weight loss – you just might rename it to roast turkey breast recipe...
Or; you might choose to prepare only roast turkey legs.

Two things are important:

1. Roast turkey seasoning – thyme and rosemary;

2. Not to overcook
