I keep my roasted turkey thighs simple - only sage, butter, salt & pepper. You can really go all out, though!
Two turkey thighs can normally overstuff two folks, or feed four people well if there are lots of sides. :D
Step 1: Ingredients:
- turkey thighs
- salted butter - 2-3 tablespoons
- fresh sage
- salt & pepper
You'll also want a probe thermometer and a lipped baking sheet - I'm using a 13x9 size. Don't use a deep cake pan - the thighs won't crisp up as nicely.
We'll be roasting the thighs at 350 F.
Step 2: Seasoning and stuffing
Now, we're going to find a way under the skin. Feel with your fingers around the cut edges of the thighs until you come to an area where you can work your fingers under the skin. Continue to push your hand under the skin, separating it from the muscle underneath. This will create a little pocket!
Add 2-3 leaves of sage and a tablespoon or so or butter under the skin and then press it back into place.
