ingredients

  • 12 cup chicken stock
  • 2 turkey legs, with thigh attached
  • 12 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 3 cups seasoned stuffing mix

directions

  • Debone turkey thigh up to leg joint. Do not detach deboned thigh meat from leg. Sauté mushrooms and artichoke hearts in olive oil until soft. De-glaze the pan with wine. In a large bowl mix the seasoned bread stuffing mixture, herbs, artichoke hearts, mushrooms and pine nuts. Add enough of the chicken stock to give the stuffing a moist soft consistency. Stuff the thigh and close using wooden skewers. Sear turkey leg in a sauté pan with hot olive oil until golden brown. Transfer to oven and finish at 400 ° until done (approximately 20-25 minutes).
