Sunday Dinner: Turkey Breast Roast In the Slow Cooker with Green Beans and Baby Potatoes
I bough a 2 pound boneless turkey breast on Saturday and cooked it in the slow cooker Sunday. Here’s what I did:
1 turkey breast
Place into the slow cooker. Brush with the following: 2 T. herb and spice mix, combined with 2 T. oil. Add 2/3 c. of water. Cook on low for 6 hours.
Remove turkey breast roast to a cutting board. Allow to rest 10 minutes. In the meantime, make gravy from the drippings. Dissolving 2 T. cornstarch in 1/4 c. of water and whisk into the drippings. Crank the slow cooker temperature to high. After a few minutes, the gravy will begin to simmer a bit. Allow it to simmer until it is thickened. Prepare the potatoes and green beans. I microbaked the potatoes for 10 minutes and steamed the green beans until tender. Since I’d frozen some cranberry sauce from Christmas, I thawed it and served it with the turkey. This was a great meal for not a lot of effort. There’s no better meal than turkey dinner! I’ll also have turkey leftovers to make such things as turkey curry, hot turkey sandwiches, etc.
