Whether you’re looking for an easy weeknight dinner or ideas for Thanksgiving for two, this sheet pan turkey with root vegetables wont disappoint!
This time of year my grocery store always puts out a larger selection of turkey than other times, so I like to take advantage!
I don’t know about you, but I’m a dark meat kind of gal. I always ask for a leg at Thanksgiving. It’s my favorite part of the bird! 🙂
I love grabbing a pack of legs and wings and roasting it in the oven with some root vegetables for an easy dinner. It’s a great fall meal and really puts me in the mood for the upcoming holiday season.
I really like leaving this in the sheet pan to serve. It’s less dishes for me to do, and I kind of like the rustic feel of it. I still use the “nice dishes” though, and like to decorate the table with fresh fruit and herbs, and this really fun Gold Wishbone
This is also a great idea for Thanksgiving for two people or just a few close friends.
Make a side of mashed potatoes and gravy and you have a complete meal in about two hours! Sounds easy enough, right? 🙂
If you are looking to make a whole turkey though, you can check out my posts on my homemade brine, how I make the best turkey, and even how to carve a turkey on my Thanksgiving page. There’s lots of other ideas there too!
For now though, lets concentrate on this yummy sheet pan dinner. 🙂
Make sure you PIN IT so you can come back to it later!
Savory turkey legs and wings, roasted perfectly in one pan with assorted root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, turnips, and potatoes. Delish!
I highly recommend using a meat thermometer to check your turkey for doneness! There’s nothing worse than cutting into poultry that you think is done, only for it to be raw inside. By cutting into it too early you will lose all the moisture and end up with a dry bird. #dinnerfail
This is the thermometer I use for everything and love it!

Talk to you soon friends, take care!
