"I haven't tried this one yet, I'm putting it here for safe-keeping. Looks good, and interesting, and would be good to do when turkey parts go on sale. This recipe is from B.J.'s Market & Bakery in Chicago."

"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."
"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"
"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."
"I followed the recipe and it turned out amazing!!!!!!"
"WOW this recipe really rocks! Boy howdy.. this one goes into our permanent "Tried and True" recipe favorites! Thanks so much :)"
"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!"
"FANTASTIC!!! The only change I made was to use Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix in place of the flour because I have Celiac. Oh, and I forgot to strain the mixture, but that didn't seem to matter to use. Will ABSOLUTELY make this again! Very frugal meal, super tasty and easy to make!!!"
"We enjoyed this recipe. The flavor was wonderful and the turkey cooked just right. Thanks!"
"Excellant! Reciepe came out Great. Taste really Good. Wife loved it. I will make it again on those special occasions."
"Excellent recipe. We used this recipe for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. My mom said that they were the tastiest turkey wings that she ever ate."
"I made this recipe last night. As a southern girl, my friends all assumed I knew how to make this dish. I love smothered turkey wings, but had always left that up to my mom and grandmom to make. So of course I searched for a recipe I thought I could pull off and fool my friends with, and boy did I hit the jackpot with this one! My friends all wanted some to take home, there wasn't enough!!! Most of the reviews have their own little things they switched or did differently, but since it was my first time making it, I followed it to a tee, just so I could see how good the original recipe was. It was DELICIOUS!!! I have already been asked to make this again next week for a pot luck. The only advice I will give, is, if you like a thicker gravy, put about 2-3 more tablespoons of flour. And please feel free to add salt and pepper to suit your taste buds, but the recipe is really quite good on its on. The extra gravy went very well over rice. I'm going to go with mashed potatoes next week! Thanks for the great recipe and good eats to all those who try it!"
"This recipie is full of flaver and the turkey wings were falling off the bone. My family all had clean plates. This is a keeper."
"this was ok. I was expecting something different like the picture I guess. it seems like the cooking time is way to long that is almost 2 hours for some wings! I also thought there is too much liquid in the sauce. My wings were a little dry and the sauce didn't stick to them at all since it was so thin. Maybe i will just try again without sauce next time."
"This recipe looked great. I changed around the recipe a little by adding about a tablespoon of jerk seasoning on the wings. To the sauce, I substituted 2 diced cloves of garlic for the celery and didn't add the milk and flour. It still came out great. My husband and kids loved it."
"I'm a Southern boy so I know Soul Food when I see and eat it!!! This is fantastic and is even better than what I pay $5.50 (one wing) and 2 sides and a cornbread muffin for....I add the leftover baking seasonings to add to the sauce (actually a cream of celery soup); added extra celery and used a couple of garlic cloves! Used 2 cans of chicken broth and a little salt....a nonstick pot would be helpful too. Right on, Hey Jude!!!! Best served over white steamed rice."
"Absolutely delicious. I used 3 cloves of fresh garlic instead of garlic and onion powders, and oregano and rosemary (abundant in ur back yard) instead of poultry seasoning. In step 3, because I had run out of celery, I used 2 bay leaves, and again rosemary and oregano twigs; the flavour turned out to be supurb. Will definitely cook it again and would like to try it with other meats, such as chicken drumsticks (maybe bake less time), lamb, beef, or pork."
