Fried Turkey

Flavors Used:

A deep-fried turkey has become a culinary highlight in modern Thanksgiving celebrations, especially since the 20th century. This innovative cooking method offers a delightful alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving meal, combining the rich flavors of a classic turkey with the crisp texture only achieved through deep frying. Introduced as part of the national Thanksgiving Day tradition, fried turkey is the perfect complement to other Dan-O's holiday favorites such as Smashed & Mashed Potatoes, Homemade Green Bean Casserole, and Turkey Gravy.

  1. I’ve. Earn using a charbroil air fryer. Ate almost as fast no danger and no need to babysit. You just use the thermometer and it notifies you when it’s done. Simple no mess no trouble.
