One of my favorite ways to cook a turkey is in my crockpot. Now this isn’t your standard BIG bird like on Thanksgiving. It is a turkey breast that I have caught on sale at some point & stuck in the freezer(with a friend or two).
My crew LOVES turkey but some of them ONLY like it this way. When we go places at Thanksgiving, where the turkey is cooked in the oven, they think it is too dry. Spoiled bunch of kids! However, turkey in the crockpot is super MOIST and yummy. We then cook & mash some taters, heat some green beans & we are ready to eat!
Oh an did I mention it is in the CROCKPOT? I love my slave in the kitchen. She works all day and I can come home to a yummy meal with almost no effort on my part!
After we eat turkey for supper there are always leftovers. I cut up the turkey & make this delicious soup for the freezer! Usually there is enough for 2 or 3 batches! There goes my other slave who just holds on to those premade meals for me until I REALLY need one on a busy day. Love .. Love .. Love my freezer!
