May sound a bit looney, but I haven’t been so excited about something since Arrested Development released new episodes on Netflix! Maybe I’ve led a sheltered life but how did I not know that you could slow cook a turkey breast! The doors have now opened and we can now have a mini-Thanksgiving feast anytime of the year! Better yet, with minimal mess!
You’ve got to admit, sometimes turkey sounds good & its the middle of the summer. Even during the hot months, so far away from Thanksgiving. But seriously, who wants to prepare a giant beast in the heat…not this lady! Utilizing your slow cooker is the way to go! This is also a perfect recipe for someone who many not have to feed a group, great for a couple. Easy Slow Cooker Turkey Breast is also great for those living the tiny house or RV lifestyle as you may not have a full-size oven.
Pick up a turkey breast on sale at the supermarket, let it thaw & you’ll be having a feast with only a tiny bit of effort. Flavor your bird up anyway you choose, you could go Cajun or with fresh herbs, or simple like I did with just softened butter & some dried herbs.
Now that you’ve saved your energy by slow cooking your turkey, whip up some amazing side dishes such as Mashed Potatoes with Wilted Spinach, Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes or Corn and Bacon Casserole! Doesn’t get any easier than this, I may never battle cooking a giant bird ever again!!!
Updated Aug 2016…PS I still haven’t cooked a large bird since this post went live, no need to!
