Air Fryer Stuffed Turkey Breast “Roll” with Bacon, Spinach/Kale, & Parmesan
- 2 1.5 lb. (680g) deboned raw turkey breasts
- salt , to taste
- black pepper , to taste
- 4 slices bacon , cut into bite sized pieces
- 4 oz. (113 g) mushrooms , sliced
- 1/2 small onion , diced
- 2 cloves garlic , minced
- 2 cups (480 ml) chopped fresh kale or spinach (if frozen use 1 cup, thawed, then squeeze out water)
- 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) dried thyme , oregano or rosemary (or 1/2 Tablespoon fresh)
- 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) dried sage or 1/2 tablespoon fresh chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) kosher salt , or to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) black pepper , or to taste
- 1/4 cup (25 g) shredded parmesan cheese or crumbled feta
Make the Filling:
- Heat pan on medium-high heat and add bacon. Cook until bacon starts to become crispy. Add onion, garlic and mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms shrink and release moisture.
- Add kale or spinach and cook until softened. Add dried herbs, salt and pepper and stir. Remove pan from heat.
- Add the cheese and give it a good stir. Set filling aside.
Prepare the turkey breasts:
- Place a sheet of plastic wrap on top of each turkey breast and pound thinner into an even thickness, about 1/2-inch thick.
- Place the turkey breasts skin side down. Divide the filling between the two turkey breasts. Fold one edge of turkey breast over and roll. Tie turkey breast. Repeat with the second breast. Season top of tied breasts with additional salt and pepper.
- Coat air fryer basket/tray with oil spray. Unless you have an oven style air fryer, cook the breasts one at a time in the air fryer. If you have a larger oven-style air fryer, you'll be able to cook both at the same time. Don't have them touching. Leave space between them. (If cooking one at a time, refrigerate the second stuffed breast until ready to cook.)
- Air Fry at 360°F/180°C for 20 minutes. Flip the stuffed breast(s) over.
- Continue to Air Fry at 360°F/180°C for another 10-20 minutes or until internal temperature of turkey reaches 165°F the thickest part. Allow to rest for 5 minutes and then slice and serve.
If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
