Spicy Onion Turkey Legs

Turkey legs are a most over looked item at the grocery. Economical, easy to prepare and Oh so tasty. This is from the Texas Hometown Cookbook that my brother, Larry, brought me from a recent Cattlemen's Association trip out west. He has to bring me something, he's always stealing my food.

Make these as spicy as you like. This recipe is about normal/medium. I increase the heat with the addition of 1 teaspoon habanero powder. That will get their attention.

Spicy Onion Turkey Legs
4-6 servings
print recipe

4 to 6 turkey legs
1/2 stick butter, melted
2 tablespoons hot sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
Lemon juice

Brush turkey legs with butter and hot sauce. Sprinkle with garlic powder, chili powder and onion soup mix. Drizzle with lemon juice. Let set for 20 minutes or so, if you have time. Grill over medium heat or bake at 375 (about 30-45 minute) until juices run clear and meat is fully cooked and golden. This will depend on the size of your turkey legs, may take longer. Wrap edges with foil if they brown too quickly. Serve hot or room temperture.
