ingredients

1 beer
1/2 orange
1/2 lemon
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
2 garlic cloves
1 turkey legs (boneless)
50 grams bread (day old)
50 milliliters olive oil
1 onions (large, chopped)
200 grams minced beef
100 grams minced pork
1 chicken bouillon
50 milliliters soy sauce
ground black pepper
1 boiled eggs
200 grams chestnuts (cooked and peeled)
3 steak (turkey, not too thin)

directions

1In a bowl, add beer, orange juice, lemon juice, orange peel, lemon peel, 1 minced garlic clove, salt, and pepper. Pour the marinade on the turkey leg, cover the bowl, and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.
2Cut the bread into pieces, put it in a bowl, and cover with water.
3Heat the olive oil in a pan, add 1 clove of minced garlic and onion. Fry until the onion starts to soften (about 10 minutes).
4Add the minced meat, stir, and cook for another 10 minutes.
5Squeeze out the bread, mix with chicken broth, soy sauce, and pepper. Add to pan with the meat, and cook for about 2 more minutes.
6Chop the egg and nuts coarsely.
7Add to the meat, and mix with a spoon. Set aside.
8Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
9Place the turkey leg on a work surface. Pour the filling on top, and cover with turkey steaks. With a needle and thread, sew the steaks to the leg, to prevent the filling from coming out.
10Place the stuffed leg, with the seam down, on a baking tray greased with olive oil.
11Rub the leg with the olive oil, and cover it with a sheet of aluminum foil.
12Bake for about 1 hour.
13Increase the temperature to 200 C, and remove the aluminum foil.
14Let brown for about 20 minutes.
15Remove the meat from the oven.
16Let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

This recipe went quickly from kitchen to table! I sprinkled the crostinis with finely chopped fresh parsley before serving with bowls of warm homemade marinara sauce. I believe many types of smoked meats would work well with this recipe including those smoked with aromatic woods.
