Smothered Southern Wings

This is a recipe that I have recieved many compliments on. It is also one of my boyfriend's favorite recipes. When we first met, he (a butcher) was very much into Beef and of course, being a southern bread man - fried foods.

Well, that all changed when he met me. I enjoy an occassionl steak and I love my fried chicken and catfish, but I also reminded him of "OTHER" great recipes...

Smothered Southern Wings (Serves 2-4)
4 Large Turkey Wings (drums detached)
1/4 cup Water
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1/2 tablespoon Kosher salt or seasoned salt (use more if you wish)
1/2 tablespoon pepper (use more if you wish)
1 tablespoon granulated garlic (use more if you wish)
1 chooped scallion/spring onion (OPTIONAL)

1/2 cup water
Drippings from cooked turkey
1/4 cup flour

Thaw wings prior to cooking.
Preheat over to 275° degrees.

Take all seasonings and combined into small bowl.
Cover wings with olive oils (using clean hands and/or gloves) and place in baking pan (do not stack wings)
Sprinkle seasoninng generously over Wings
When finished pour 1/4 cup water at base of pan with out sprinkling on turkey.

Bake wings for 5-6 hours - to desired tenderness.

When finished cooking take wings out of oven and let stand while you make the gravy.

Pour drippings from pan in sauce pan, add 1/2 cup water. Bring to medium boil and add flour slowly while stiring (with wisk) into pan. When flour is stirred to desired look (lumpy - not too much stirring), bring heat down to a low simmer for 1-2 minutes.

When finished drizzle over wings in current pan or place in new pan or plate and serve.
