Easiest Turkey EVER

For real, y'all. This is THE simplest way to cook a turkey breast. (And of course, it's perfect for taking to a potluck dinner.)

1. First, make sure you have a turkey breast that fits in your large oval slow cooker. (Not all turkey breasts will fit.) Grease the crock (or its liner) thoroughly before starting.

2. Next, follow this recipe. . .

3. . . . with one addition: melt 1/4 a cup of butter (half a stick) in the microwave and pour that over the turkey breast.

4. As the turkey nears completion, siphon or scoop out a cup or two of liquid. Use that to make your gravy.

This result is white meat that is both moist and flavorful. It is perfect if you are cooking a holiday meal for a small party or a small family. (And since the turkey is made in a slow cooker, your oven is left free for things like rolls, casseroles, or pie.) This recipe just might make me fall in love with my slow cooker all over again.
