Pulled Roast Turkey Leg

by Jamie0liversgirl (follow)
Dinner (157)      Turkey (6)      Meat (3)     
Turkey legs are some of the most succulent pieces of turkey. Over the festive period, turkey breast gets a bad rap for being 'too dry', but with the leg because it is on the bone and has a little more fat, it becomes moist, juicy, and tender.



This is a fantastic joint of meat, which will serve the whole family, or at least two little mouths for a couple of days. You get a lot of meat for your buck, simply because it isn't a popular cut. Great for the week before pay day and money is a bit tight. You needn't worry because pulled roast turkey leg is a delicious meat, which can be paired with vegetables, potatoes (mashed or otherwise), added to sandwiches, wraps, or top jacket potatoes.

So, buy this turkey joint (only 2.00 from Morissons supermarket), and get ready to feast on flavour.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Makes: 5 servings

Ingredients
1 Turkey leg
2 Tblsp Olive oil
Half tsp black pepper
3 sprigs of thyme
3 fresh basil leaves
Half tsp fresh nutmeg

Method
Remove the skin from the turkey leg.



Season with all of the herbs and spices.



Grate the nutmeg over the meat.



Drizzle with the olive oil.



I've found my little niece and nephew prefer mild flavours to strong ones, so I seasoned this with a few herbs, and the plates returned clean.

Place in the oven for an hour.

Crush the garlic cloves using the back of a knife, keeping the skin on.



Remove from the oven and add the crushed garlic cloves.



Place back in the oven for the final 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven.



The meat should pull off the bone easily, but you can carve it off using a knife too.



Pull the meat off and serve in a bowl.



Allow the kids, or whoever you're serving, to serve themselves, and enjoy as much turkey as they'd like.

Alternatively, serve your son or daughter a kid-sized portion, and keep the leftovers in the fridge (for sandwiches, wraps, salad fillings), for up to two days.

Sorry but thats a bad recipe.
Firstly, you are not giving temperatures. Secondly, thats NOT pulled, what you made is just a simple turkey leg roast. I suggest you read up on what "pulled" means.
Pulled turkey recipe looks great and I'm very keen to try it. What oven temperature do you use?
