  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place a large sheet of aluminum foil on a medium baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the bread, celery, cranberries, walnuts, onion, and garlic. Season with sage, marjoram, salt, and pepper. Stir in the egg and enough hot water to moisten.
  3. Arrange turkey legs on the foil sheet, and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the bread mixture around the legs, and dot with butter. Tightly seal the foil around the legs and bread mixture.
  4. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the turkey leg meat has reached an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (80 degrees C).

I have made this recipe several times, always to rave reviews. Made it most recently with prepackaged "stovetop" stuffing mix, adding the herbs listed in the recipe (we love herb-rich recipes!)....

Turkey legs were .99/lb. at the store, so I thought I would try this recipe. I love turkey, and especially dark meat, and I was really hoping this recipe would taste like a little Thanksgiving....

These were tasty. Very tender, & the stuffing turned out delish, I made extra stuffing which was very similar to this recipe (slow cooker stuffing, also on this web site) on the side because we...

This was good but not great. I liked the list of ingredients but just did not have a lot of flavor. Maybe if you opened the packet and let the drum legs brown up a little bit it would have bee...

I made this but made a small change by making stuffed boneless legs. I used two whole turkey legs with thighs still attached. Cracked the bone at the "ankle" and deboned the whole leg (leaving t...

I loved it! I did double the stuffing as suggested by others and forgot to put the egg in it which didn't matter. It turned out fabulous.

Great tasting. Used breadcrumbs because that was all I had and it turned out great. So tasty!

These turkey legs need much longer than 1 hour to cook. After 1 hour I took them out of the oven and grilled them for another 30 minutes over medium heat. The stuffing was very tasty.
