2 Turkey legs, bone in (purchased at Cub Foods $2.05)
2 Turkey thighs, bone in (purchased at Cub Foods $1.98)
1 can whole cranberry sauce
1 large onion, cut into 1 inch chucks
1 tablespoon butter, or Earth Balance butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bunch of rosemary sprigs tied together
1 pinch of chicken bouillon cube (picture below)
1/4 cup dry sherry (optional, you could use a little chicken broth or water this just adds more flavor)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1) Warm olive oil in saute pan and add chopped onion, brown slightly (4-5 minutes).
3) Next, salt and pepper the turkey legs and thighs. Brown them in the same pan you sauteed the onions add the 1 tablespoon of butter if needed. Once legs and thighs are browned on both sides place in the crock pot with the onion and cranberry mixture. Place the sprigs of rosemary on top at this time.
4)Next deglaze the saute pan with the dry sherry (or your choice). Then drizzle over the turkey legs and thighs in the crock pot.
5) Then add the pinch of chicken bouillon cube. Just a pinch!
6) Allow this to cook in the crock pot for 5 hours on high. Meat will be so tender it will just fall off the bone! Amazing!
