Olive-Brined Air-Fryer Turkey Breast

Rating: 5 stars 4
An easy recipe for making a savory, juicy turkey breast in an air fryer. Using olive brine gives the breast flavor and also keeps it tender. I use spicy Tabasco® Olive brine for extra kick. Serve with cranberry sauce.

Great soup for using up leftover turkey. This soup has a little cayenne added to give it a kick.

Instant Pot® Turkey Breast

Rating: 4.5 stars 83
The Instant Pot® made the moistest turkey breast I have ever made. I usually let this cook in the slow cooker all day, but this turned out so much better. I couldn't believe that I had such a wonderful meal ready in less than an hour total!

Turkey and Rice Meatballs (Albondigas)

Rating: 4.5 stars 101
As these turkey and rice meatballs simmer in the sauce, the rice absorbs moisture, swell ups, and creates a relatively tender, moist meatball. I didn't intend this recipe to be a Thanksgiving dinner alternative, but now that I think about it, these could actually work. These are delicious served over saffron basmati rice.
