Food Food Food

I am thinking food today. Dinner tonight is the easiest, tastiest turkey recipe EVER!

I like things simple since I am just learning. I found this recipe and was doubtful it would be good because it is TOO simple. I was wrong.

1 Turkey Breast Roast
1 stick of salted butter (I like Prize of Iowa Sweet Cream or I make my own)
Crockpot on low 7-9 hours.
Optional: grind mixed peppercorn over it before serving. We use a green and black mix, but I like the red, green, black, and white mix best, from Penzy's.

The gravy is rich and buttery.

That's it. Really. It is the most tender, lovely turkey meat; slices up nice, feeds about 6 which means for us dinner and two lunch servings. I bought the breast roast on sale for 7$, but I have seen it as high as 13$. That makes raising some turkeys a tempting possibility.


  1. Mmmm - this sounds wonderful.
    I'll have to get a turkey roast soon.
    I do beef for us, and shred it for tacos and various other things, but turkey sounds divine too.

  2. Wow! That sounds awesome! I just bought turkey breast at Fareway for 99 cents a pound. Now I know what to try with a few of them :o)

  3. I just bought a breast too and will cook it today. I will have to tell mom to just put it in with sweet butter today. Hehe Too bad the stores are too far for her to walk to get some. Ah well, maybe next time. It DOES sound good. =)
