If cooking a huge turkey causes you major anxiety or completely terrifies you, then this Slow Cooker Turkey Breast will be your new BFF. It’s so simple to throw together, it’s juicy and unbelievably delicious.
It was a perfectly legit question.
After all, I have been cooking turkey breasts this way for the last 15+ years. Some of the teachers and aides at my boy’s elementary school came to love me for my slow cooker turkey breast recipe (true story!).
I really can’t believe I’ve never shared this before. What was I thinking?
Now while I love a big, gorgeous golden turkey, a small, simple turkey breast has always been just perfect for the seven of us. I can honestly say, I’ve never cooked a whole turkey . . . gasp!!! I’ve always left that up to my mom or mother-in-law (lol!).
I’m partial to homemade cranberries on my turkey, but there are a few picky eaters in this family that only want gravy. No need to fear, you can make delicious gravy using all the juices in your slow cooker. I usually strain the juice and add some water and cornstarch and bring it to a boil in a saucepan. Add a little salt and pepper if needed and voila, you’ve got some delicious gravy. Sometimes I will add some of the flavoring from the packet that comes inside the turkey breast.
