You are probably wondering why I am posting a turkey recipe in the spring. Well, I bought a new Crock-Pot Slow Cooker from Costco last week and wanted to try a new Turkey Breast with Mustard Sauce recipe for my spring soloist feast.
No need to dirty another pan fo the gravy; it comes together right in the slow cooker. A quick broil after cooking helps brown the turkey breast skin. Add some traditional sides like potatoes, vegetables, biscuits and cranberry sauce for a complete feast.
Turkey Breast for a Spring Feast
So this year I cooked a turkey breast instead of the traditional spring ham. Nobody complained and we have turkey leftover for turkey sandwiches for lunch.
Slow Cooker Turkey Breast with Mustard Sauce
- Slow Cooker
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 medium onions
- ¾ oz thyme
- 1 cup turkey broth
- 1 turkey breast
- ¼ cup honey
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
- Have the garlic heads crosswise. Peel and halve the onions. Place garlic, onions, and thyme in the bottom of a 7-qt slow cooker. Add the broth.
- Pat the turkey dry and season with salt (in moderation) and pepper. Place turkey on top of the onions and drizzle the honey all over. Cover and cook on low 6 hours or on high 3 hours.
- Preheat the broiler to high. Remove the turkey breast and place it on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 2-3 minutes, until the skin is browned. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
- Meanwhile, remove the onions, garlic, and thyme from the cooking liquid in the slow cooker. Whisk in the cornstarch and mustard together, then whisk into the cooking liquid. Cover and cook on high for 10 minutes until slightly thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Serve gravy with turkey.
