Turkey Legs

Thank you for tender flesh so sweet Uniquely known for your dark meat Risen to fame as a rare treat Known as sticks that are fun to eat Each person asks for a repeat Year after year, you face defeat Lovingly fried in hot peanut oil Eaten quickly before you spoil Gobs of grease on aluminum foil Save us from high cholesterol.

Wonderful acrostic, Linda. We always put an aluminium grid to let the grease drip.
