Turkey Osso Buco
{Printable Recipe}
Serves 6

Ingredients:
6 large turkey drumsticks
salt and pepper
1/8 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced onion
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
8 cloves garlic, peeled and slightly crushed
1 tablespoon rosemary leaves
3/4 cup white wine
1 cup crushed tomatoes
2 cups chicken broth

Instructions:
1) Preheat the oven to 350.
2) Season the turkey legs with salt and pepper and dredge in the flour.  Shake off any excess.  Add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat.  Add the turkey legs, but don’t crowd, and saute them until golden on all sides, about 14-15 minutes.  Transfer to a large baking dish.  Repeat with remaining legs.
3) Add the onions, carrot, celery and garlic to the same saute pan and cook for 3-4 minutes over medium heat.  Add the rosemary and wine and scrape the bottom of the pan to remove any browned bits.  Continue to cook until the wine has almost completely evaporated.  Add the crushed tomatoes and chicken broth and bring to a simmer.  Pour over the turkey legs and cover the baking dish with foil.
4) Cook the turkey legs for 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours or until just cooked through.  The meat will begin to pull away from the tips.
5) Remove the turkey legs and place on a serving dish and cover with foil.
6) In a blender or food processor, puree the cooking liquid until smooth.  Pour over the turkey legs or pass separately in a gravy boat.  Serve with buttermilk mashed potatoes and a vegetable.
