Crock Pot Turkey Breast Recipe



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. 

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
uncooked
(1) Add the diced carrot, celery, garlic, onion and broth to the crock pot and stir. 
(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.

    1. Do you have an estimation on how many people this would feed?

      1. I would allow 3/4 lb per person on a bone-in turkey breast or 1 lb per person if you want leftovers. For instance, a 6 lb bone in turkey breast would most likely feed about 8 people.
