Crock Pot Turkey Breast

I did kind of a dry run for Christmas dinner the other week.  Its never a good idea to try out new recipes ON the special day so I usually try them out ahead of time.  I never mind really because, if its good, I get to actually enjoy a special meal twice and we all know how much I love my food! 

 Turkey is the meat of choice in most homes for Christmas Dinner.  I know that it is also the choice of meat for the holidays in Canada.  In America, probably not, since they just had turkey for Thanksgiving, but if they are anything like me, they never quite get tired of eating turkey.  Well, just so long as it is cooked well that is.  Ain't nobody going to like a poorly cooked dry turkey!!!
This year I decided to try cooking a Turkey Crown in the slow cooker and I have to say that I was totally pleased with the results.  It was so easy to do, and resulted in a perfectly cooked and deliciously moist turkey!  I adapted the idea from a recipe I discovered on Skinny Taste.
So not only is this delicious, but it is also relatively low in fat as well.  If you really were craving a brown looking turkey, you could finish it off in the oven for about 15 minutes, but I did not bother.   I basically was just wanting to see how the recipe worked and how it tasted.  
 I was so pleased with the results that I am doing it again on Christmas Day, which works perfectly for me as this year Christmas is on a Sunday and we will be spending an hour in church in the morning, so I won't be home to tend any turkeys.  Not only was this simple to do and the meat tender and delicious, but the gravy was some of the best gravy I have ever eaten.  I give this recipe a resounding ten out of ten!
