5 Great Turkey Fryer Recipes

Updated on February 22, 2011

Turkey Fryers are not limited to just frying whole turkeys. I am always finding new ways to use my turkey fryer for all kinds of recipes. Below are 5 great turkey fryer recipes that I think you'll enjoy.

#1 Cajun Deep Fried Turkey

A delicious technique for any occasion, turkey frying is particularly popular during the holidays. Use the recipe below, and sink your teeth into the juiciest turkey that you've ever tasted!

#2 Deep Fried Pork Chops on a Stick

These delicious pork chops on a stick are great for any occasion. These cook fast in the turkey fryer, and the convenience of food on a stick means less cleanup for you! Try this fun recipe that is quick and easy to prepare.

#3 Deep Fried Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

For smaller gatherings a whole turkey may be a bit too big, and can leave you with lots of leftovers (which I guess is a good thing). But if you want to tone it down a bit you can deep fry a whole chicken in your turkey fryer. Check out my recipe below, and enjoy!

#4 Wisconsin Fish Boil

This great cooking technique was taught to residents of Door County, Wisconsin by Scandinavian lumberjacks, and has gained popularity all across the country. Use your turkey fryer along with the recipe below to do a Wisconsin Fish Boil in your backyard.

      Yummy! My family makes deep fried turkey for thanksgiving and it is nice to have some other recipe ideas to use the fryer all year around (I particularly want to try the pork chops). Also, it is good that you highlighted the safety tips (I heard that there are a lot of turkey deep-fryer accidents strangely enough). Thank you for the post, perhaps it will inspire others to come up with recipes of their own :)
