Seeking ideas for turkey leg quarters and wings - pref. a braise

ChristinaMason | Dec 1, 201008:11 AM

I bought a 12-lb. turkey after Thanksgiving on super-sale. Last night we roasted the breasts and made the back into stock, leaving the remaining parts begging for attention. I'd like to make a braise but need inspiration. I don't really feel like making coq au vin (not the traditional, anyway), paprikas, pot pie, or adobo.

On hand I have:
red wine
white wine
dry vermouth
various beers (either light or quite hoppy; no Guinness or Belgians, but I do have a STRONG stout)
frozen corn, peas, collard greens
good canned tomatoes and tomato paste
sadly, no thyme (a crime!)
assorted broths

Any ideas? I'd love an actual recipe. I thought about making Brunswick stew, but I don't have any limas or okra.
