Thanksgiving is one of my absolute favorite holidays...I always look forward to the dinner, especially the turkey--in addition to getting together with my family, of course! As much as I enjoy turkey, I don't know why I have never made a turkey breast?!? When I was out grocery shopping the other night, I noticed that Kroger had turkey breasts on sale for $.99/lb, so I thought I would give it a shot--after all, my sister has always raved about how easy and delicious her turkey is, that she makes in the crockpot with apple juice. I've been trying to be good about "meal-planning" for the week, especially now that we've got my son's soccer practices, so I thought that today would be the perfect day to try this recipe!
Slow-Cooker Turkey Breast
(1) 4-6 pound turkey breast 1 1/2 cups apple juice Garlic Powder Garlic Salt (optional)
Place turkey breast in slow-cooker. Pour apple juice over turkey and make sure that there is at least an inch to an inch and a half of apple juice covering the bottom of your slow-cooker--you may need a little more than a cup and a half! Sprinkle generously with garlic powder and garlic salt. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, depending on the size of your turkey.
If you were to look up the word "picky" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of my husband off to the left. Growing up, I was exposed to all sorts of different foods and encouraged to experiment with different flavors, but after meeting my husband, I somewhat locked myself into an eight to ten meal rotation and was reluctant to deviate. I have since given birth to two of the least picky eaters on the face of the Earth, thus inspiring me to transform my cooking style. I know many people, like myself, lead such hectic lives, so I strive to find recipes that are quick and easy--especially those that you can whip up with ingredients that you ordinarily have on hand!
A bit about me...I married my husband, Marcus, on June 1, 2003 and we welcomed our son Jacob on March 22, 2005. Our daughter, Madeline, was born on March 1, 2008. I stay home with the kids for the most part, but also work occasional shifts as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I truly hope you enjoy my blog. A special "thank you" to my sister, Sarah, for giving me the idea! Her creativity is hard to live up to, but I'm a very determined person and hope to make her proud :)
