INGREDIENTS

• 1/2 cup butter unsalted

• 1 tsp rosemary fresh, chopped

• 1 tsp thyme fresh, chopped

• 1 tbsp smoked paprika

• 2 tbsp dijon mustard

• 1/2 cup maple syrup

• 2 turkey thighs bone in w/ skin, washed and dried (about 2-3 lb)

• 1 tsp salt

• 1/2 tsp pepper

• 1 cup water

• 1 large onion chopped

• 5 stalks celery chopped

• 5 carrots chopped

• 4 sprigs rosemary

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.

  2. In a small sauce pan add the butter and melt over medium high heat. Add the rosemary, thyme, smoked paprika, dijon mustard, maple syrup and stir. Bring to a boil then remove from heat.

  3. Score the skin of the turkey thighs. Season your turkey thighs with salt and pepper. Pour about 3/4 of the maple/mustard mixture over the thighs and toss.

  4. Add the water to a roasting pan, then add the onion, celery, carrots, rosemary, and thyme. Place a roasting rack in the pan.

  5. Place the turkey thighs, skin side up, on the rack and brush with remaining maple/mustard glaze.

  6. Roast for 2 hours or until the internal temperature reads 175-180F, basting every 30 minutes with the juices from the pan.

  7. Remove from the oven and cover the thighs with aluminum foil. Let them rest for 10 minutes before slicing them.
