Crockpot Turkey Breast


With the holidays looming,
turkey is on the menu for a lot of folks
who can't get enough of the stuff at Thanksgiving.
Our Thanksgiving meal is usually pretty simple.
As it's just the three of us, (and one of us doesn't eat meat),
it doesn't make a lot of sense for us to buy a whole turkey,
so we make a few side dishes and enjoy the day together.
To make the preparation even easier,
we have enlisted the assistance of the crock pot.
It couldn't be simpler to make a moist, juicy turkey breast
with enough leftovers to satisfy the natives.





The turkey breast is washed and dried,
then placed into the crockpot.
A dry rub is used to coat the bird.
No water is added to the pot,
but it comes out moist and tender.
This meal is so easy,
it's worth making more than once a year!

Crockpot Turkey Breast
One 3-5 pound turkey breast
2 t salt
1 t onion powder
1 t Italian seasonings
1 t paprika
4 cloves garlic, smashed

Place turkey breast in crock pot
and season with dry rub.
Add garlic cloves to pot.
DO NOT ADD WATER OR BROTH
Cook on high for 6 hours,
or low for 8-10 hours.
Enjoy!
