Turkey and Sweet Potatoes
BLUE PLAN: 5 Points
GREEN PLAN: 7 Points
PURPLE PLAN: 1 Point
We were brainstorming one day about what to make for Thanksgiving, and of course, turkey always comes up. How do we make it so that it is the perfect crispness outside and deliciously tender inside? Use the Ninja Foodi that’s how. The Ninja Foodi, combined with one of the best recipes you have ever tried for turkey breast will make this Thanksgiving feast a breeze. It takes about 30 minutes total, including prep, time to come up to pressure and cook time. Save time this Thanksgiving, spend more time with your family and not in the kitchen cooking.
The Ninja Foodi is an amazing invention that has truly saved us time and counter space. It really does it all. I think it is going to replace my oven soon 🙂 Making our turkey and sweet potato recipe in the Foodie was so quick and easy. If you have followed our blog, you know we love cooking, and the Instant Pot was our go-to kitchen device with some Air Fryer thrown in for crispness. We love making our normally slow-cooked beef stew in the Instant Pot. It produced the same flavor and tenderness and in less time. The Foodi takes our amazing turkey recipe to the next level! It is crispy outside, juicy and tender inside.
Saving Points on ThanksGiving
We used heavy cream and real butter for this recipe. It is only 9 points for the whole meal according to the Weight Watchers App. Yes, that is awesome! You can make it even less points if you decide to substitute for the milk, butter, and heavy cream. We strive to make meals that taste way above what you expect. We love to eat so the food has to taste phenomenal. If you do substitute let us know what you did and how it turned out. 🙂
Please calculate EVERY recipe you find online in your recipe app. I have found the WW app updates frequently, making some counts inaccurate. All points are accurate at the time of posting, but just to be safe I recommend calculating points by using your recipe builder. You can do this in Healthi formerly iTrackBites as well (for free!).Print
