  • About


  • 2 turkey legs (ask your butcher to bone them, but to give you the bones)
  • 500 g spinach or Swiss chard, washed
  • good olive oil


Cook the spinach in a large frying pan in a little olive oil over a very high heat until just wilted. Add the garlic and allow to cool. Squeeze out when cool, then season. Stuff the turkey legs with the spinach, and re-form into approximately their previous shape. Tie about four times.

Preheat the oven to 180
