Turkey Is Cheap This Time of Year

Hello to everyone out there. It's a nice, snowy day with the big flakes coming down. This time of year, turkey left over in the stores from the holidays is inexpensive to buy. We are all looking forward to roast turkey to put in the oven and flood the house with wonderful cooking smells.

I am one of those few people that just can't get into the white breast meat of the turkey, so the recipe I am using today is using turkey thighs.

I marinate the turkey thighs with soy sauce, mustard, hot pepper sauce, olive oil, S/P, and balsamic vinegar. Then I lift it out of there and rolling them in oats. You heard me: old-fashioned Quaker oats. I found out that of the top ten stress-reducing foods, oats was number one and are also gluten-free.

I roasted these turkey thighs in my little toaster oven, and I'll tell you what they were fabulous. The oats roasted into a crispy nutty flavor, and the turkey is so moist on the inside. You can see from the photo how moist and tender they are.

Hope you all have a wonderful year. And God bless all your friends and family and all their family and friends. Amen.

Cooking Instructions for Quaker Oat Turkey Thighs

  1. Take all the ingredients except the turkey thighs and the oats and mix together in a bowl.
  2. Then smother the turkey thighs in the mixture. You can marinate these thighs in the refrigerator overnight for a more intense flavor.
  3. Take the thighs out of the marinade and roll into the Quaker oats. The olive oil will help to stick the oats to the turkey thighs. I didn't use eggs because I cannot eat them.
  4. Roast in an pre-heated 400 degree oven or toaster oven for 45 minutes. Check with a food thermometer to make sure the thighs are cooked to 170 degrees. Rest for 5 minutes before enjoying.

        @Glimmer Twin Fan thank you. You could use chicken thighs. The turkey breasts would taste great and the coating would keep them nice and juicy. Be sure to let them be room temperature before you roast them and rest them five minutes before you eat them. That is the trick for extra juicy meat.

        This recipe looks really good. I don't think I've ever seen just the turkey thighs in the market though. I see turkey breast a lot and I could use that. Nice recipe.

        @always exploring You can use the oat coating on anything you want to bread to be gluten free and another good one is cornmeal instead of bread crumbs.

        This is right down my alley. I must eat gluten free and I love the dark meat in turkey. I will try the oatmeal as a coating. Thank you.
