Turkey thighs become more and more popular on the international cooking scene. This is because more and more people are becoming aware that turkey has a very tasty but also healthy meat. In addition, the price of turkey thighs is becoming more affordable.
Cooking turkey thighs in the oven is the most common method of preparing them. Many of you think of turkey only on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas but I recommend you to introduce this magnificent bird to your current menu.
To give you an extra reason, I offer you this recipe for rolled turkey thighs. It is a slightly more unusual method of cooking turkey thighs, but the result is very tasty and appetizing, so it is worth the effort.
After all, the recipe involves filling the thighs with garlic and specific flavors such as rosemary, which goes well with turkey. Then, rolled turkey thighs are baked in the oven slowly to become tender and finally roasted to have crispy and reddish skin.
If you watched the video you noticed that the cooking method is simple and, as a result, I don’t have many secrets to share about the rolled turkey thighs. I will just emphasize that it is important to use foil in the first phase of cooking in the oven to tender the meat, if you do not use it you must significantly increase the time allocated to this stage.
Regarding the amount of garlic included in the rolled turkey thighs recipe, it may be too large for some of you. However, keep in mind that turkey has a consistent flesh and the weight of a thigh is quite large, so the amount of garlic is justified by these things. However, the amount can be reduced to your taste if you want a more subtle garlic flavor.
The same goes for rosemary, you can avoid adding twigs to the tray if you do not want the rosemary flavor to be strong.
Not to forget, the rolled turkey thighs are always served sliced, not whole and you can add a sauce to match the flavors used such as a dried plum sauce or a cranberry sauce.
Enjoy cooking rolled turkey thighs in the oven!
