Air Fryer Turkey Dinner For Two by Samantha Milner at RecipeThis.com
Makes 2 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: about 1 hour and five minutes
2 bread rolls
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp sage
7.0 oz frozen Brussels sprouts
1 lb baby potatoes
2 Tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp parsley
Approximately 2.5 lb turkey wrapped in bacon
Approximately 9 oz sausage meat
1 celery stick, small dice
1 oz frozen diced onion
Approximately 2.5 oz breadcrumbs
Approximately 9 oz frozen green beans
2.5 cups crème fraîche
7 oz grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
1. Chop up the bread into chunks and season with sage, salt, and pepper and then spray with a little extra virgin olive oil. Place on the top shelf of your air fryer and cook for 6 minutes at 360 °F.
2. While the croutons are cooking, load baby potatoes into a bowl and season with parsley and toss in salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil. Load onto an air fryer shelf along with the frozen Brussels sprouts.
3. When the air fryer beeps, load the croutons into a mixing bowl with sausage meat, breadcrumbs, diced frozen onion, diced celery, sage, salt and pepper. Mix with your hands and make into stuffing balls.
Load the turkey onto the top shelf of the air fryer oven and spread the stuffing balls around the turkey. Then, have the shelf with the baby potatoes and the sprouts at the bottom. Air fry for 35 minutes at 360 °F.
4. Remove the sprouts and replace with frozen green beans and air fry for a further 10 minutes at the same temperature. Then remove the green beans and baby potatoes.
5. Move the potatoes and place into a serving dish. Move the turkey to the bottom shelf and turn over. On the top shelf add a green bean casserole. You can make this by loading green beans into a serving dish with butter, grated Parmesan and cream.
Season with salt and pepper. Find room in the air fryer for your gravy, and cook for a further 15 minutes.
6. Plate everything up and if anything has gone cold, just do a quick reheat using the air fryer while the turkey is resting.
