Spicy Turkey Drums & Hasselback Sweet Potatoes


My husband and I went to Epcot (Disney Park) shortly after we were married. Everyone was walking around eating these awesome looking and smelling spicy turkey drums, which weren’t kosher so we were unable to buy them. I told my husband that when we get back home, I would do whatever it takes to make them for us. I got it on the third try, and it has been our favorite dinner ever since. I’m going to write my recipe for the hasselback sweet potatoes as well!

2 Turkey Drums

Spice rub:
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbs Montreal steak spice
1 tbs paprika
1 tbs onion powder
1 tbs garlic powder
1/2 tbs chili powder

In order for the turkey to be juicy and moist , it needs to be marinated overnight.
Place turkey drums in pan and cover with water. Pour in 1 tbs brown sugar, 1 tsp kosher salt and 1 tbs Montreal steak spice.
When ready to cook, pat to dry and coat the turkey with the spice rub.
Place on cookie sheet and bake uncovered on 400° for 30 minutes, then lower to 350° for another 40 minutes.


Hasselback Sweet Potatoes:

Slice the potatoes thinly, accordion style, but do not cut all the way through the potato so the slices remain attached at the bottom.  Combine 1 tbs oil, 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp minced onions and 1 tsp rosemary in a bowl and smear all over the potato.  Try to get it in between the slices as much as possible. Place on a baking sheet and bake on 400° for 25 minutes. Then remove and re-brush with the oil and spice mixture. put it back in the oven for another 50 minutes. This tastes amazing using regular potatoes as well.


Happy cooking,
