Personally, it is my opinion that we do not cook enough turkey at home, except at Thanksgiving! That is sad, because it can be cooked so many different ways and the left-overs make it even more economical!

Roast Turkey with Truffles

“Housekeeping In Old Virginia”, By Marion Cabell Tyree, 1877



Truffles must be peeled, chopped and pounded in a mortar; one and a

half pound will do for one turkey. Rasp the same amount of fat bacon

and mix with the truffles and stuff the turkey with it. This dressing

is usually placed in the turkey two days beforehand, to impart its

flavor to the fowl. Lay thin slices of fat bacon over the breast of

the turkey, cover it with half a sheet of white paper, and roast two

hours. Chestnuts dressed in the same way as truffles are found an

excellent substitute.

WE just bought an air fryer. It is great.
You will LOVE it! Facebook has many Air Fryer groups that share recipes. Of course, depending on the recipe and type of Air Fryer you have, you may need to "tweak" the time and temperature, but that is the fun of it! The Garbanzo Bean recipe will make snacks similar to Corn Nuts!
