Directions

  1. Make numerous vertical slits in the turkey legs.
  2. In a small bowl combine the olive oil with the salt, pepper, teriyaki, vinegar and oregano. Thoroughly coat each turkey leg with the mixture.
  3. Cut onion, green pepper and bacon into small squares, approximately the same size as the slits you cut on the turkey legs. Fill each slit with one piece of pepper, onion and bacon.
  4. After the legs are stuffed, brown them in the oil mixture all around on medium-high. Lower temperature to low and cover. Cook for 45 minutes or until meat starts to separate from the bone. If the legs dry out when cooking, add a little water to the skillet and lower the temperature.

The flavor was really good. The recipe, however, did not say where to marinate. (My refrigerator solidified the olive oil.) It should also have said approximately how many slits to make per leg. I had too many left over onions/peppers/ and bacon pieces. It did not say what to do with thoset. The cooking time indicated was about half of what I needed (1 hr 20 minutes) until the juices ran clear. But it was worth the work and my husband liked the results.

My husband went and bought 4 packages of turkey legs after eating this meal. I didn't cut slits and stuff the legs. Just chopped everything up and threw it in the pot with corriander seeds. I didnt have the soy sauce but I didn't miss it. I did add water as suggested. I removed the bacon towards the end and cooked it fully in the microwave. Served with rice covered in the sauce with bacon on top. Big hit with kids too.

Pretty and easy to make, this recipe is certainly quite salty. I would halve the salt. It was helpful to pull the skin down, stuff the turkey legs and then replace the skin. It made the turkey quite juicy. Definitely worth making.
