These mouthwatering wings are baked to perfection and served with a side of black-eyed peas over brown rice and flavorful asparagus. Trust us, your taste buds will thank you!

Why Turkey Wings?

Now, you might be wondering why turkey wings specifically. Well, let us tell you, turkey wings are an underrated gem! They are incredibly juicy and flavorful, and when cooked just right, they practically fall off the bone. Plus, they're a great alternative to the usual chicken wings. So, why not give them a try?

Preparation is Key

Before we dive into the cooking process, let's talk about preparation. To save time, it's best to season your turkey wings the night before or after your sunrise routine on the day of cooking. This allows the flavors to really penetrate the meat, resulting in a more delicious and tender end result. Trust us, it's worth the extra effort!

Black-Eyed Peas: Canned vs. Dry

Now, let's talk about the black-eyed peas. We know, cooking dry beans can be time-consuming and requires planning ahead. That's why we recommend using canned black-eyed peas for this recipe. They're just as tasty and save you a whole lot of time. Simply heat them up and add your favorite cooking meat for extra flavor. A little bit of seasoning and they're good to go!

The Perfect Seasoning

When it comes to seasoning, we like to limit the amount of salt we use in our dishes. That's why we opt for off-the-shelf seasonings that contain mostly herbs and spices. Not only does this add a burst of flavor, but it also keeps our sodium intake in check. It's a win-win situation!

Asparagus: Fresh or Frozen?

Now, let's talk about the asparagus. Depending on the season, you can use either fresh or frozen asparagus. Both options work perfectly fine and taste equally delicious. So, don't stress if you can't find fresh asparagus at your local grocery store. Frozen will do just fine!

Time to Cook

Alright, now that we've covered all the important details, it's time to get cooking! This entire meal takes about 2.5-3 hours to prepare and cook. But trust us, it's worth every minute. And hey, if you're feeling extra adventurous, why not whip up a small batch of our special blueberry surprise cupcakes? They're the perfect sweet treat to end your meal on a high note!

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your apron, turn up the music, and let's get cooking! Your taste buds will thank you, and your family (or dinner guests) will be begging for seconds. Enjoy!
