Turkey Drumsticks in the Crock Pot

Turkey Drumsticks in the Crock Pot created by Babychops

The grocery here often has fresh turkey legs and they're very inexpensive. I make this recipe using 4 or 6, however many happen to be in the package. I then take the meat off the bone and use it in recipes that call for cooked chicken or turkey.

    Simple, easy and delicious! I used smaller turkey legs, cooked for 5 hours and they cooked perfectly. I did add 1 cup of water and when they'd legs were done I made gravy. Served with potatoes and green beans, it was a tasty meal!

    Very tasty and EASY. I used 3 drumsticks, 1/2pkg onion soup mix, sliced onion and can of mushrooms, cooked on high 3 1/2 hr, thickened the juice and served over pasta. My husband says this is a keeper.

    AWESOME! I had picked up 2 pkgs (3 in ea pack) of drumsticks for $1.60 each (Can you say, Cheap?!) and found your great recipe when searching for something easier than baking them in the oven. Here's what I did: Put 3 drumsticks in the crock pot. I had seasoned them w/turkey rub and marinated them for about an hour w/some red wine vinegar...maybe 2T. Instead of the onion soup mix, I cut up a whole onion and threw that in. Decided while I was at it, I'd throw in some baby carrots and potatoes (small ones...quartered) as well. Cooked 3 hours on High. DELICIOUS and perfectly done! This made an awesome, quick, healthy meal! A friend was over for lunch and she loved it too. I will most definitely be making this again!!

    First off, don't cook as long as recipe calls for, the turkey will be dried out. I wish I'd cooked it about 5 hours as I tasted it at that point & it was moist & lovely, falling off the bone but by the time my honey got home (about 7 hours cook time) it was dried out & not very good. I did use cooking sherry instead of water & the flavor at first tasting was lovely, would have been wonderful had I served it after 5 hours on low so I'll give it 4 stars & remember to cook it 4 or 5 hours next time.
