Because I am in a never-ending search and attempting to get my family to eat healthier, I have started cooking turkey breast rolls on Sunday nights and keeping turkey breast in the fridge for healthier lunches.
Cooking fresh turkey is:
- healthier than processed lunch meat
- less expensive than processed lunch meat
- tastes better than processed lunch meat
Plus, when I have delicious fresh turkey in the fridge, I can:
- Recreate my favorite sandwiches from Panera.
- Recreate my favorite chili from Panera.
- Have meat around for a quick soup, salad, wrap, stir fry, or casserole.
Cooking a frozen turkey breast roll in your Instant Pot is an excellent method because:
- You can keep your turkey breast roll in the freezer until you are ready to make it
- No defrosting is necessary
- It cooks fast
- Hardly any prep is needed
These frozen turkey breasts usually come with a packet of gravy. You can make the gravy if you like, but I typically want to make the turkey for sandwiches and salads, so I discard the gravy packet.
To cook a frozen turkey breast roll in your Instant Pot, you will need:
- A frozen turkey breast roll
- An Instant Pot
- Olive oil – optional
and that’s it!
Instant Pot frozen turkey breast roll
- 1 2-3 pound frozen turkey breast roll
- 3 cups water
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Place your frozen turkey breast roll in a pot of water for 3-5 minutes. You will want to defrost it just enough so you can cut it out of its packaging.
Discard the gravy packet that comes with the turkey. ( unless you want to make the gravy)
Keep your turkey breast in the string netting.
Place 3-4 cups of water in the bottom of your Instant Pot.
Place the Turkey Breast Roll in the water in your Instant Pot.
Place Instant Pot lid on. Seal the valve and cook on high pressure for 45 minutes.
Let pressure naturally release. Cut the string netting off your Turkey and slice.
Serve or store.
This is so easy! I love having delicious turkey around for all types of meals my family loves! Plus, my kids love bringing turkey sandwiches in their school lunch!
