Day 294: Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Neighbor, friend, domestic diva, patient momma Korrin did this guest post for me...it looks awesome! Thanks!

1 (6 pound) bone-in turkey breast
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
3 T. Butter

Rinse the turkey breast and pat dry. Cut off any excess skin, but leave the skin covering the breast. Rub onion soup mix all over outside of the turkey and under the skin. Place butter in bottom of slow cooker and let it melt for a couple of minutes. Then place turkey breast in slow cooker. Cover, and cook on High for 1 hour, then set to Low, and cook for 7 hours or until turkey breast comes to a temperature of 165 degrees. When turkey is done take it out and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. While it is sitting use the drippings in the slow-cooker to make gravy.

This was the best turkey I can remember having. It was moist and very flavorful. The best part was that it was super easy to prepare and cook. It was also nice that I had leftover cooked turkey to use in 2-3 additional recipes for dinner that week. I loved it and will make this again. 4 stars

  1. karen -- was this a frozen turkey breast??? thanks!

  2. Could you use a boneless turkey breast?

  3. Kimberly, yes! easily. You won't have to cook a boneless turkey breast as long as a bone in turkey breast though.
