“From our local state paper and submitted by a gourmet butcher Vince Garreffa, it sounds so good, hoping to try it shortly so times are estimated. His intro was "The "love of my life" cooked this for me using turkey legs for Christmas. I loved it so much that I cook it often with chicken because it's quick, easy and tasty. Maybe you can use this recipe with turkey Marylands for Christmas in July but do cook them for longer because the bigger size of the Marylands." Christmas in July reference is that it is our winter and some people celebrate with a traditional Christmas lunch/dinner then and will do cold fare at Christmas during our summer.”
