Roasted Turkey Thighs and Stuffing

Mikekey *


Perfect for dark meat lovers and for a small holiday dinner. I used my tradtional homemade turkey stuffing but packaged stuffing, i.e. Stovetop (prepared) will work. The juices from the thighs drip down into the stuffing while roasting. You won't have drippings for gravy so plan on using jarred gravy or homemade made with stock. I used herbes de provence, but any combination of dried herbs will work, i.e. thyme, marjoram, sage etc.
