Baked Turkey Wings with Vegetables and Country Gravy

About recipe

This recipe is what I like to call ‘Soul Food Sunday Dinner worthy’ because it feels like something special to cook when you have a little extra time to plan, though it’s a delicious slice of heaven you can have any day of the week!
