K10’s Crockpot Turkey Breast, really that’s the best you’ve got. Yup. sorry people. I majored in math, not creative writing! And it is Crockpot right? or is it Crock Pot. or is it Crock-pot? And is it “C” or “c?” Who ever 1. signs up for emails from functionalfitmom.com and 2. leaves a comment on this post first and tells me the right answer gets a free sample of Shakeology. And you have to tell all of your friends about this website. 🙂 I think it should be one word. But who knows.
So… I’ve been wanting to make a turkey in the crockpot for a while. I’ve been scrolling through a bazillion recipes on Pinterest. And the regular Internet.
Well, this is what I came up with. My goals were 1. Clean ingredients 2. Yummy 3. Don’t dry it out.
Here’s what I came up with:
Pretty sweet huh?! I mean it’s not sweet, but it’s sweet. Know what I’m sayin? It was delicious. And easy!
The turkey breast I had was almost 7 pounds so I had to use my big-momma 8 Qt Crockpot. I also discovered I need to take turkey carving lessons. That’s why there’s no pretty plate picture. But the bird looked pretty tasty on the cutting board. I served it up with steamed asparagus and a baked sweet potato – super healthy and super yummo!
Now, I got a big container of broth, any ideas what I could do with that? Maybe a soup? I’m not really into gravy so, any ideas?

Put in remaining ingredients ensuring that some of them stay on the breast, like so:
Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4.
Did you know it was National Pancake day?! Thank you BHG newsletter! (Not really) But you know me, I found a healthy version here: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-2-ingredient-banana-pancakes-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-218658. I made the blueberry jam recipe from Fixate for the topping. DELISH!!
What does that have to do with meat sauce? Nothin. 🙂
So I am working on an Italian style meat sauce that i can make in the crock pot and use on/in anything: zoodles, lasagna, etc.
I used these ingredients (not the bananas or kids snacks in the background):
I used the ground veal, but this would work with lean ground beef or turkey as well. I served it over zoodles. And because I’m new at this blogging thing, I completely forgot to take a picture of my plate. Oops, My bad really. I’m sorry. I have a couple excuses if you want to know why. But you’ll have to ask. And I’ll update the recipe with a picture when I heat up the leftovers tomorrow. See I’m still here for you!
My only concern about how it turned out is that in the crock pot it doesn’t reduce like on the stove. So this may get tweaked as I continue to learn. And if you have any ideas, please feel free to comment!
Super yummy and versatile!
