Clear Out. I used this recipe as an opportunity to clear out the freezer and used half bags of parsnips, potatoes, and sprouts. You can do similar and mix and match ingredients.
Prep. I made ahead some of my favourite air fryer stuffing balls and placed these in the gaps. For air frying stuffing, its much easier because it doesn’t need to take up a lot of room in the air fryer to be successful.
