CONSUMPTION REPORTS – For Thanksgiving, did you end up with a giant turkey for a small crowd? Well, for the next holiday dinner, which is just around the corner, you can opt for a smaller and easier holiday meal thanks to your air fryer!
You can’t cram an entire bird into the basket, but a 4 or 5 pound turkey breast or ham will do. Just make sure it’s under the edge of the basket.
Place an oiled and seasoned turkey breast in your preheated air fryer skin side down for 25 minutes, then turn it over to finish and brown.
CR testing has revealed that these pop-up plastic timers may not be reliable. But an instant-read thermometer will tell you your turkey is ready when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Then place a baking dish of moistened stuffing in the drawer to bake and brown for about 22 minutes.
Roasted vegetables cook well in an air fryer. To ensure browning, pat the vegetables dry, toss them with a little olive oil and be sure to shake the basket every 10 minutes or so to ensure even cooking.
For dessert, use a small saucepan or baking dish that fits the basket. How about a pumpkin pie pudding or an apple crisp?
And the best part of your vacation meal is fresh cooking and a lot less mess. This is something to be thankful for!
CR says that if you’re looking for a great vacation air fryer deal, don’t necessarily buy the cheapest or most expensive model. Pay close attention to the size of the basket and think about how often you cook.
