The turkey legs are the best part of the turkey, who doesn’t agree 🙊 and I was finally able to get some from Northstar Bison! I was so happy because these come from heirloom slow growth turkeys who spend their lives foraging on pasture and are never fed corn or soy. This is important to me, not only to keep the PUFAs in the meat low (read more here) but also because corn and soy are both gluten cross reactants and I’m gluten intolerant! And of course, I only want to eat happy birds that are regeneratively raised (no angry birds here)!

Its great to rotate through which kind of meats you eat, and a turkey leg boasts a lot of different nutrients that a turkey breast doesn’t contain. For example, it’s full of collagen and glucosamines which we need to build our own tissue and joints!
Every time I see a turkey leg, I have to think of the Renaissance festivals I always went to, and the crispy delicious smelling turkey drumsticks that everyone was drooling over🤤
Now that I have a new toaster oven air-fryer, I’m able to make one of my favorite treats at home. This cooking method ensure a crispy but juicy piece of meat😍
If you don’t have an air fryer/toaster oven, I’m sure you can make it in a regular oven as well!
Our drumsticks were a pound each and needed about 30 minutes at 375° and then 10 more minutes at 400° in the air fryer!
We seasoned them with curry powder and flaked sea salt from Maldon Salt 🌶🧂 and the flavor did not disappoint!
