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)
bacon
celery
carrots
onions
shallots
potatoes
frozen corn, peas, collard greens
good canned tomatoes and tomato paste
sadly, no thyme (a crime!)
saffron
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.
