I love drumsticks, so these are perfect for me! My favorite cut of chicken to buy.

I buy drumsticks in large bulk packages because it's all my kids eat. I bring them home, separate them, bag them and freeze them. Roasted drumsticks got boring, so I am so excited to see all of these new options!

I love drumsticks and especially love when I can just stick them in the oven to bake. Definitely going to try some of these recipes!

Who wouldn't want one of these recipes?! I always see chicken drumsticks on sale at my grocery store, now I will have plenty of recipes to make with them.

Everything made me hungry.

Upside-Down Banana Bread

We had a little fun in the Test Kitchen and turned your favorite banana bread upside-down! Our Upside-Down Banana Bread is great as-is or served with some vanilla ice cream. Just be warned, no matter how you decide to eat it, it'll be hard to stop at just one piece!
