Turkey Breast

I picked up a bone-in turkey breast from Hungarian a couple of weeks ago with plans to throw it on the grill one of these days.  I ended up using the slow cooker and it came out amazing.  I think it took me a total of 10 minutes active time and we fought over the leftovers.

I had looked through a few recipes online and followed just the cooking time – for a 3 lb breast, 1 hour on High and 3-4 hours on Low.

At 8:30am, I rubbed the turkey inside and out, under the skin and everywhere I could, with salt/pepper/paprika/garlic powder and brown sugar.  I dropped it in the slow cooker without a drop of liquid.  1 hour on high and then on low till 12:30pm.  I let it rest and then sliced it up.  I drained the fat from the liquid and added flour and salt/pepper till it thickened and then put the sliced turkey in it and poured a little more of the juices on top.  When it was time for dinner, I slowly reheated it in the pan and served it with rice, corn and cranberry sauce.  We were very *thankful* for  an amazingly simple and delicious Shabbat dinner ;)
