Turkey Thighs -- with Pumpkin Stuffing under the skin!
Author: 
 
The pumpkin works as a moistener and stuffing binder holding everything together.
Ingredients
  • 2 turkey thighs
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • ½ cup whole wheat panko
  • ½ green onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 dates minced
  • 6 almonds chopped
  • ¼ cup minced ham
  • 1 heaping tbs parmesan cheese
  • pinch of parsley minced
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • sage leaves
How To
  1. Blend all stuffing ingredients.
  2. Gently lift the skin from the meat, leaving one end intact.
  3. Take this opportunity to rub a little olive oil and season the meat.
  4. Pat down the stuffing directly on meat.
  5. Add sage leaf, pull skin over, rub oil and seasonings on skin.
  6. Cook covered in 325 degrees for about 30-45 minutes and then remove cover; continue roasting till thermometer registers correct internal temperature and skin crisps (place under broiler for a couple of minutes if necessary).
Notes
1. These thighs were plump and could easily serve 3-4 people. 2. I didn't de-bone the thighs before cooking, but it sure would have made it easier for presentation and sharing.
