Sooo good and easy!!!! Halfed the recipe, but not the spices. For the gravy, I used 1-1/2 cans of chicken broth with about 5T of flour. Perfect consistency. Used only 1/4 cup of milk. Wow! This was

I am a keenly critical soul food lover and many recipes are trash which appear to be part of the genre. However, this recipe is the gospel. I didn't use the milk at all and I didn't add a thing to the gravy. I did have to make a bit more seasoning for the turkey legs but I just followed the instructions as directed.I poured most of the stock out when I put the gravy in the pot with the turkey legs. And I only cooked the turkey legs for an hour and a half (maybe 1 hour 45 minutes as I did not want the turkey to dry out. When I finally pulled this dish from the oven and served it....OMG!!! The company raved over it....The family raved. And there I was looking like a master chef with such and easy recipe to follow. Try it and I don't see how you can be disappointed. Company begged me for the recipe. It was crazy! Will DEFINITELY do this again. And don't listen to comments of people who say they will do this without the gravy next time. The gravy is what makes this work. Just keep adding your flour and make the gravy to your liking in terms of thickness. If you follow the gravy recipe as printed it will probably be too thin.

I founf a faster way to make the sauce. Use a can of cream celery, can of cream of mushroom and 1 cup chicken stock with 2 cups milk. follow the rest of the ingredients for the sauce. The thyme is what makes the sauce pop. If you want more of a gravy, don't add as much milk.

The only one thing I changed in this recipe was using a hand blender and breaking down the celery and onions, keeping them in the sauce. I also added another pinch of poultry seasoning and sage for further flavor to my sauce, excellent! Turn your turkey wings into a classic dish.

These turkey wings are FANTASTIC! My house smelled so good--like Thanksgiving or mama's cooking. I followed the recipe to a "T" with an exception for the onion powder, which I didn't have, and which I substituted by sprinkling fried onions over the tops. It turned out so delicious--just as tender as one could hope. I made a mushroom risotto to accompany it and added fresh mushrooms to that. The gravy then went well into the risotto. The turkey/mushroom risotto/gravy bites blended just perfectly together. Yes!!! Baked turkey smells so much more exciting than chicken. I am hooked. Thanks for this recipe. I'm pregnant and now feel I have an official mama recipe under my belt.

I didn't care for this recipe. I was expecting more of a gravy instead of a sauce. I followed the recipe exactly except I added two more tablespoons of flour prior to adding the milk and after adding the milk I still thought it was a bit runny. I also thought that there was too much butter because there was plenty on the top of the dish when I took it out of the oven. Probably will not be making this again.

This was sooo good! The sauce was soo delicious! but the sauce was too thin so it did need about 4 more tablespoons of flour. My only problem was that the turkey was kinda dry, i thought it would have been falling off the bone. But other than that the flavor was amazing! i will def be makin this again!
