Cook time 15 mins
Bake time 1 hr, 30 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
Turkey drumsticks are a favorite with kids. For family suppers, plan on one drumstick for two youngsters and a drumstick apiece for teenagers or adults.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup lite soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 4 fresh turkey drumsticks (about 3 lb.)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together ketchup and next 6 ingredients in a 1-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.

  2. Place drumsticks in an 11- x 7-inch baking dish. Pour 1 cup ketchup mixture evenly over drumsticks. Bake, covered, at 350° for 1 hour; uncover, top with remaining 1 cup sauce, and bake 30 more minutes or until fork tender.

  3. Note: To make ketchup sauce ahead, prepare as directed in Step Cool sauce, pour into a 1-qt. airtight container, and chill for up to 2 days.
