Almost Fried Turkey

A seasoned boneless turkey breast is rolled then wrapped in foil. Each layer is tightly wrapped before doing the next. It is then deep fat fried. Anyone know about this method of cooking a turkey breast?? No time per pound or temp. was given. Thanks for any help!!

Barbara

Almost Fried Turkey

The boneless turkey breast is rolled up into a rolled shaped then it is tightly wrapped in foil, then tightly wrapped again in foil, then again 1 more time. The rolled, triple foiled wrapped turkey breast is deep fat fried. When the time is up, unwrap, slice and eat.

What is the point of deep frying it if it is wrapped up?

Now I understand. It seems to me the turkey will be steamed inside the foil.

As far a how long or at what temperature, I'd hesitate to guess.

I saw that on Food network with the bleached blond fellow, Guy something or other They used the meat for sandwiches, it looked really tender and moist..Seems like a lot of work.They seasoned it, rolled it then wrapped in foil 3 times. It didn't seem to take a lot of time to fry. I'd wager maybe 20 minutes or half an hour..Would need to see how long it takes for a turkey with bone and go from there

Wouldn't that be...boiled in oil? Expensive too. And no more flavor added than if roasted. Sorry. Just my take.

No need to be sorry.Roasted turkey is yummy...
this was seasoned, rolled and wrapped 3 times in foil.
then deep fried..I watched and thought this is nuts, but I was surprised when I saw the meat, it was very moist and looked very tender, much more moist than oven cooked...But I also thought a lot of work...I doubt I'd try it.

If it is so well wrapped then the oil is not actually touching the meat right? So what is the point of deep frying it if the oil is not ever coming in contact with the meat? You could get the same result by wrapping it and putting it in the oven.

Exactly, that is why I doubt I'd
try it..I do think timing has a lot to do with it..Deep fry is hotter and quicker..
The oven is safer and works for sure..I'll do the oven..
