Roast Turkey in the Crock Pot...

Thanksgiving in May...

Who doesn't love roast turkey with gravy?

Only some days it's just too hot to have the oven on to roast a turkey.
As was the case last week when my Colonel came home for a few days.
I had this turkey breast in our freezer that I had planned on making for dinner his 
first night home, only it was HOT that day and our A/C unit decided NOT to work.

So instead of having the oven on all afternoon I pulled out my crock pot
and put the turkey breast in and a few hours later, the most delicious moist 
turkey breast was ready for our dinner.  

Turkey Breast...

An easy recipe for turkey breast that cooks in your crock pot.  The perfect recipe to use for Thanksgiving when you need extra white meat but don't have room in your oven with the turkey cooking.  Try this recipe for moist turkey!

  • One Turkey Breast
  • 2 Tablespoons Softened Butter
  • salt, pepper, season salt (or YOUR favorite seasonings)


Spread the softened butter all over the outside of the turkey breast.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and the season salt.
Place in the crock pot and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 4 to 6 hours.
Check with an meat thermometer to make sure it reaches the proper temperature for doneness.

Here is our turkey breast all cooked AND do you see that broth?  THAT is from the turkey cooking in the crock pot.  I added NO WATER at all to the crock pot while the turkey was cooking.  I used the broth to make the most delicious gravy to serve along with the turkey.

If you would like detailed directions on making gravy, 
please go HERE to read my post on pot roast.  
I always make gravy this way and the gravy always comes out GREAT.

I made roasted potatoes in the oven and green beans to complete our Thanksgiving Dinner in May...

Oh, and a piece of chocolate cheesecake made a nice treat for dessert.  You can get the recipe for this amazing cheesecake HERE...

Enjoy your day!


  1. The turkey looks delicious. I will have to try the recipe. Thank you.

  2. It looks wonderful. And I do love the crockpot, especially on cold days and very hot days.

  3. G'day! I have made chicken in a crockpot previous which was VERY moist indeed, TRUE!
    Now will have to put turkey on my list to do!
    Cheers! Joanne
    What's On The List

  4. My husband will only eat turkey that is made in the crockpot and now it is the only way I make it. I use anise, ginger, onions and garlic as spices.

  5. I've never tried making a turkey breast or a chicken in the crock pot before. Great idea!

  6. Lois I have this in the crockpot right now with a boneless turkey breast!! Yum, it smells divine!!

  7. What a yummy way to have Thanksgiving in May! And a treat for a Thanksgiving anytime, especially for a smaller family. I never even thought to do turkey in a slow cooker, but what a great idea. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday!
