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.
- 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!
