Prep:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Make numerous vertical slits in the turkey legs.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with the salt, pepper, teriyaki sauce, vinegar and oregano. Marinate turkey legs in the oil mixture.
  3. Chop onion, green peppers and bacon into small squares (approximately the same size as the slits you cut on the legs). Fill each slit with one piece of pepper, onion and bacon.
  4. After the legs are stuffed, brown them in the oil mixture all around on medium-high. Lower temperature to low and cover. Cook for 45 minutes or until meat starts to separate from the bone. If the legs dry out when cooking, add a little water to the frying pan and lower the temperature.
