This is an easy and economical way to make a turkey feast in your crock pot.
You house will smell terrific from cooking this all day.
1 bone-in turkey breast (approx. 6-7 lbs)
1 cup diced carrot
2 cups of diced celery
2 minced garlic cloves
1 cup onion
1/4 cup of chicken broth
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
2 Tablespoons of butter (melted)
Rosemary, Sage and Thyme
(2) Rinse the turkey breast. Rub onion soup mix all over outside of the turkey and under the skin. Place in a slow cooker.
(3) Melt your 2 tablespoons of butter and pour it over the turkey
(4) sprinkle the top of the turkey with rosemary, sage and thyme
(5) Cover and cook on high for 1 hour and then Low for an additional 5 to 6 hours (depending on the size of the bird). For safety, the inside of the turkey breast should be 165 degrees or higher when done.
The vegetables can be removed with a slotted spoon and served as a side dish (they are delicious).
This recipe goes perfectly with my homemade cranberry sauce (its easy to make and freezes great) http://www.christineiscooking.com/2011/10/cranberry-sauce-recipe-easy-oamc.html
and homemade gravy from the crock pot juices http://www.christineiscooking.com/2011/10/how-to-make-gravy-from-roasted-or-crock.html
The leftovers are perfect for sandwiches, soups, quiches and casseroles.
