I do love roast turkey, especially dark meat. It's easy to find cheap drumsticks and thighs in the grocery store and they roast much, much quicker than a whole bird.
First I placed some carrots, parsnips and onions in the bottom of the roasting pan. They give the turkey some flavour and the turkey gives them a ton of flavour.
I sprinkled the turkey pieces with a little oil, salt, pepper and sage.
Then I roasted the turkey pieces at 400 degrees for about an hour until they registered 180 degrees on a meat thermometer. You can leave them a little longer because dark meat doesn't dry out as much as white meat.
I served the turkey with the roasted carrots, onions and parsnips, roasted Brussels sprouts, and my favourite turkey side dish...
Tasty, cheap and easy. This is a nice change from roast chicken in about the same amount of time.
