Crockpot Turkey

Whenever someone on my cooking message board updates their food blog, they post what's known as a "BU" - a blog update. This way, others can ogle new dishes and recipes when they are "fresh."

Because I subscribe to about eleventy billion food blogs, I don't always read these BU posts; chances are, I'll see it in my google reader. For some reason, however, I clicked on this one particular post (I don't even remember what it was for!) and saw a blog whose name, Erica's Kitchen Adventures, I didn't recognize. So I added it to my Google Reader and... lo and behold, it was new to me! I immediately went through her list and starred a whole bunch of recipes, including this one for Crockpot Turkey.

  • 2.5-3 lb turkey breast
  • About 32 ou turkey or veggie broth (I used vegetable)
  • 1/2 c white wine
  • About 4 carrots, sliced
  • 4-5 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced into half moons
  • Sage
  • Rosemary
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Flour (optional - I used about 1/2 cup and could have used a little more)
  • Egg noodles

Place all ingredients except for the flour and noodles in the crockpot and cook on low for 7-9 hours.

Remove the turkey (leave broth and veggies in the pot) and shred or slice.

If you would like - add some flour to the broth to make a thicker sauce.

Cook your egg noodles according to package directions.

Serve the turkey and sauce over the noodles. Enjoy!! This would probably be great with some good bread!


  1. looks like a comforting dish that's easy to make in a crockpot!

  2. This looks like something my mom used to make that I had totally forgotten - what a great taste of home
