Roasting turkey legs is an ideal way to have a turkey dinner any time of the year you'd like without investing in a complete bird. If you don't want or need to cook an entire turkey for Christmas lunch, this is an excellent easy alternative as well.

  1. 1

    Rinse the turkey legs in cool tap water, removing any stray feathers or excess fat. Pat dry with a paper towel.

  2. 2

    Rub the turkey legs with butter and salt or other seasonings of your choice.

  3. 3

    Place in an oven baking pan, and bake at 180 degrees C (350F) for around two hours. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature -- when it measures 82.2 degrees C (180F) your turkey legs are done.
