TIPS FOR ROASTED TURKEY LEG WITH HONEY AND SPICES

1. If the turkey and the potatoes start to brown too much cover with aluminum foil.

2. We usually roast the turkey leg at 180ºC (350ºF) but, if you lower the temperature to 150ºC (300ºF), despite taking longer to roast, it has the advantage of enhancing much more the flavors and the meat gets more tender.

3. If you have leftovers, store the meat and the potatoes in the fridge in a properly covered container (to prevent the growth of microorganisms). To avoid drying out, do not reheat the food in the oven, reheat it in the microwave.
