I have to tell you guys the truth. This super simple recipe kicked my butt!…
I must admit, I do not use my Gourmia Air Fryer nearly as much as I should. One of my goals for this year is to cook great meals but also save time.
When I was a kiddo one of the sole reasons of going to the fair was getting a turkey leg. You never knew where the turkey legs were being sold you’d just see someone enjoying a turkey leg and then ask “Hey, where did you get that from?”They’d point in the right direction and off you went to enjoy the best turkey leg you’ve ever had!
For some reason, I got in the mood for the “fair” turkey leg. I really wanted to try a turkey leg in the air fryer. And man…was it good.
45 min later and minimal effort, I enjoyed a crisp, moist and tender Turkey leg.
Check out the recipe and ingredients. Of course you do not have to use the Stubbs BBQ Sauce but that sticky sweet BBQ Sauce gave it a taste that was PERFECT!
