Roasted Turkey Legs (Video)

Crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, and you can use the drippings to make your turkey gravy – and be ahead of the game! 

I usually do this a couple of days before Thanksgiving, so that I can make the gravy in advance.  I love using the leftover meat from the legs for my turkey soup (that recipe to be released soon).  I love using my Double Burner Grill Pan for this recipe, it’s the perfect size!  To add depth of flavor, I used our Herbs de Provence Seasoning.  Delicious!

For this recipe, I used my Double Burner Grill Pan, along with our DELICIOUS Herbs De Provence Seasoning:
