      Air Fryer Hand-Held Turkey Pot Pie

      Warm to the touch with a slightly crispy golden crust handheld turkey pot pie bursts with hunger satisfaction and is dripping with rewarding delight that only at the last bite. The only problem you may have (depending on the size of your fryer) is making enough of them to keep up with how fast they will get gobbled down. A warm sauce pan gently sauteing onion and garlic may be my favorite way to kick off cooking a nice meal like this. The nose flavors are so inviting and create a subtle taste profile that is soundly embedded into this handy recipe. Thickened turkey broth swimming with rich tasting celery, carrots, peas, and cooked turkey are guaranteed to be a belly filling taste bud pleaser that will have the target audience coming back for more. Best served fresh and warm; these little beauties keep well and travel nicely for an easy ‘reheat on the go’ or for a ‘pop-n-go’ bite just prior to stepping out to meet whatever your day has planned. Make these on the weekend and let the kids heat them up to give you some flexibility for a busy up-coming week. But if you have enough time to gather the family around the table, handheld chicken pot pies keep a warm temperature when covered, long enough for you to make a couple of batches. Best part is how great they will smell while you heat up the next batch.

      Watch the video and follow the instructions below to see for yourself how easy this handy little chicken pot pie is to create.

      Spoon the pot pie filling on one side of the dough crust. Fold the other dough side, use your fingers and fork to seal the pie.

      In a small bowl: combine egg and water. Brush each pie with egg wash.

          Air Fryer Meatballs

          Sizzling with flavor and dripping with excellence, these juicy meatballs are a fabulous addition to any home cooking collection. Fresh from the Air Fryer and exuding steam filled promises of delight, these meatballs are a personal favorite of mine. This recipe is functional in many different ways but the air fryer gives you the option and a bit different texture. The Air Fryer maintains the integrity of the natural tastes from the ingredients without adding additional fats or sauces to smother out the true essence of a dang good meatball.


          Enjoy these meatballs on a plate of noodles, with a sandwich or just stand alone as an appetizer or cook enough to enjoy them as a main course. Rolling the fresh meat in bread crumbs will give the meatball a crispy outer shell that locks in the moisture of the meat and milk saturated bread.  These meatballs explode with juices, texture and gentle satisfaction that brings an inner peace to the hunger within.  

          Watch the video then follow the simple instructions below to unlock the secret of one of the best meatballs you have ever had. I tweaked this recipe several times to get it to the point where it is what I consider to be worthy of the eatfoodlicious label.

          Using a small bowl: remove the bread crust & tear/cut into small cubes. Pour milk and let the bread soak. Set aside.

          In a large bowl: combine all the ingredients except the breadcrumbs.

          Scoop out about 1 tbsp of the meat mixture and roll it into a ball.

          Cover the meatballs with the breadcrumbs and transfer to a plate.

          Should make ~36 meatballs.

          Coat with cooking spray.
