Thanksgiving Recipes - Cook Your Turkey in the Slow Cooker!

Never enough of a good thing!


It's time for that traditional Thanksgiving turkey.


Here in Virginia, the continuing controversary about serving turkey for Thanksgiving is hot and heavy with no end in site.


Purests point to the fact that ham is the historically correct entree for a southern Thanksgiving. Our fore fathers and fore mothers would not have served turkey, they say. Turkey is northern fare.

Whether it is or whether it isn't, turkey is still number one at Thanksgiving but many Southern homes give a nod to our heritage by serving both ham and turkey.



You just can not have too many good things to eat at Thanksgiving!



Slow Cooker Roasted Turkey Breast

This is an incredibly easy (and scrumptious) way to cook a turkey breast.


Moist and juicy plus it frees your oven for other yummy things like pies! Just pop it into the slow cooker and forget it!!

A great way to add extra serving of white meat.
Perfect for small family feasts, too. 


Once you roast a turkey breast in the slow cooker, you'll never cook it another way!!


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
1 turkey breast (4-6 pounds - thawed, if frozen)
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>



Wash turkey well under tepid running water. Drain.


Put turkey into a slow cooker, cutting, if necessary to fit.  Cover.

Set cooker on high and cook 4-5 hours or until a meat thermometer reaches 170 degrees.

Like all slow cooker recipes, the exact time is very forgiving.

Remove from cooker and keep warm for serving.

Use the broth as part of your stock when making your gravy.



Karla's Tips
There is nothing else and no other ingredients to this recipe!  Really!!
The slow cooker was NOT preheated.
Do not add any liquid.
