Looking for the most tender and moist turkey breast, you will ever have? Give my Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi Frozen Turkey Breast and Mashed Potatoes a try! Go from a frozen turkey breast to a fully cooked and perfectly cooked turkey and a side of mashed potatoes to serve with it.
I love that you don’t have to spend time thawing your turkey breast before you go and cook it. The Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi will pressure cook your turkey, so it cooks it all the way through while preserving the moisture. As we all know white meat can tend to be dry, but when you pressure cook it, the moisture indeed stays locked in the meat.
Easy Instant Pot Or Ninja Foodi Turkey Breast and Mashed Potatoes
You can make this for a weeknight dinner or even prepare this for a quick holiday feast for two. When I cook a turkey breast, the Instant Pot is the way to go. Now that I have my Ninja Foodi I use the pressure cooker feature to prepare it as well. I get an incredibly juicy turkey breast every single time. It is a no-fail method.
What Are The Best Potatoes To Use For Mashed Potatoes
Feel free to use whatever potatoes you prefer. I generally reach for either a red potato or even a russet or Yukon. All three of those potatoes have a nice amount of starch in them to give you a creamy and thick mashed potato. Feel free to peel your potatoes or leave some skins on. It is all about personal preference.
Seasoning The Instant Pot Turkey Breast
Feel free to season your turkey breast with seasonings you prefer. If you have a turkey recipe, you swear by, pat on the seasonings to give your turkey that same savory flavor combination. This turkey and mashed potatoes recipe are very versatile, and you can adapt the seasonings you use which are so lovely.
What To Serve With Ninja Foodi Turkey and Mashed Potatoes
You can serve it alone or pair with steamed or roasted broccoli, cranberry sauce, a green bean dish, or even a crisp green salad. I also tend to have dinner rolls on hand that I can pair next to it, to slather up any juices left on the plate.
Best Way To Store Leftovers
If you have some leftovers, toss them in the fridge for up to three days. After that, you will want to toss out any leftovers. You can freeze the leftover turkey if you don’t feel you will eat it in time. Just place in a sealable freezer bag or freezer friendly container and store for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge the night before you want to serve.
I hope you all enjoy my turkey and potato dinner idea made right in your Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi! I can never get enough turkey, so this is always on my list to make!
