Speaking of all things Christmas, one keen cook has shared how he’s tested cooking a turkey in his air fryer – and was super impressed with the end product.

TikTok user Ollie Eats, aka @ollieeats, was curious to see how the bird would roast in his kitchen device, so decided to give it a try.

In a recent video on his social media account, he said to his 436,000 plus followers: “Can you Air Fry a turkey? 

“I’ve got this 2KG butter fried half turkey from Muscle Food and I was wondering if I could reduce the cooking time and energy output using my Air Fryer and not my oven.”

Getting stuck in, Ollie seasoned the turkey with salt, pepper, garlic granules and mixed herbs.

It was then ready to be placed into the increasingly in-demand kitchen gadget.

Ollie chose to cook the bird at 180 degrees and said he wanted to cook it until the internal temperature was 75 degrees.

Once this was achieved, Ollie removed the turkey from the Air Fryer, ready to see how it tasted.

He continued: “Once it hits the temperature, I’m leaving it to rest. After resting, I carved it up.”

But what did he find? Giving his verdict, Ollie said: “By cooking it in the Air Fryer, we shaved off 30 minutes of the cooking time and produced a really nice, lean piece of meat.”

Ollie’s followers were equally impressed by the look of the turkey and many said they might follow in his footsteps this festive season.

One wrote: “Ok Christmas.”
