Slow Cooker Classic

JP and the kiddos bought me a slow cooker for my birthday.

My procrastination in this area is over 🙂

Anyway I’m having an interesting time trying out new recipes.

I tried BBQ Crockpot pulled Pork during the week.  It doesn’t have to be eaten warm and turned out to be a hit for the lunch boxes.

Highly recommended Southern recipe.


Have a good weekend.

  1. I love the slow cooker! Try this recipe sometime from my bl og:

    Here’s another idea:

    Take a half or whole bone in turkey breast. Slice 1 large onion into half moon slices and layer in the bottom of the prepared slow cooker. Put the turkey breast on top (make sure you can close the lid to the cooker completely). Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with any combination of herbs that you like (oregano, thyme, whatever). Cook on high for 3-4 hours for a half turkey breast and little longer( like 4-5 hours on high) for a whole breast. Be sure to check the temperature about 3/4 of the way through the cooking time (should register 180 F) dried out turkey is yucky.

    If the turkey breast came with a gravy packet inside the cavity, then remove it (obviously 🙂 ) before you put the turkey in the crockpot. Then once the turkey is cooked, put it on a platter and strain the juices, pressing down on the onions in the strainer into a pan and pour in the gravy mixture and follow the directions on the package of gravy mix.

    This makes a lot of extra meat for casseroles, soups, chicken salad. I feel like I get a two for one!
