Air Fryer Stuffed Turkey Breast “Roll” with Bacon, Spinach/Kale, & Parmesan
Based on two (1.5 pound) deboned turkey breasts.
If not using bacon, replace with 2 Tablespoons oil or butter.
Try to keep the skin-on turkey because it keeps the meat moist during cooking. Make sure to have a kitchen thermometer on hand to check temperature to ensure it’s cooked. See the great step-by-step photos in the write-up above recipe.
