2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 turkey legs
salt and pepper to taste (option: add 2 cloves of minced garlic to the seasoning)
1 cup white wine or chicken stock
1 cup red wine or beef stock
1 yellow onion, finely diced
1 tomato, finely diced
½ cup celery, finely diced
½ cup carrot, finely diced
2 bay leaves
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
Place the oil in a heavy pan over medium-high heat. Season the turkey legs with salt and pepper to
taste, and then cook in the hot pan for approximately 5 minutes, being sure to brown on all sides.
Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the turkey into a deep baking pan or casserole
dish and bake, uncovered, for one hour at 325-degrees. Reduce the heat to 300-degrees, cover
the baking pan or casserole dish, and cook for another hour.
Spoon the sauce over mashed potatoes and top with chopped basil and serve with the turkey. Serves 2.
