What is that?
And then she recited the recipe to me and it was music to my ears.
Turkey and a stick of butter.
"It's delicious!" she said!
And I believed her...because she is my sister and she knows what tastes good.
And I was more than intrigued....because I have a house full of fussy eaters and there is no way that turkey and a stick of butter could offend any one!!!
So I made it yesterday.
I bought a frozen turkey breast with the bones in from Target. I let it thaw for a day.
I stuffed the turkey in my old, small crockpot and then I added the butter.
The top would not go on with the butter in one piece so I cut it in smaller pieces.
I sprinkled a little Johnny's seasoning (this is a Wisconsin thing) on top and turned it on high.
It cooked on high from 9 am until 4 pm. Then I took out the bones. I gently lifted the pieces of turkey onto a plate and fished the bones out of the pot. I didn't want ANY bones in the turkey so I put the juice thru a strainer. This worked perfectly. Then I poured that flavorful juice back in the crockpot and returned the tender meat also. I shredded the turkey and put the crockpot on Low.
The meat was very moist and flavorful!!
If you need more moisture add a little chicken broth.
Cindy learned this recipe from her husband Pat's family. Aunt Roxie's Crockpot Turkey.
We think the bones along with the butter give this dish it's great taste!
Oh! I forgot to tell you. Cindy said they eat this with hamburger buns. She has them plain, Pat adds barbecue sauce.
As I thought about serving this to my family I thought Katie would like it better in a flour tortilla with a little mild cheese on it. She did. She ate it. Big deal.
My Patrick had his on a bun as did I. I added a little cheese to mine.
Have you ever made this? ever heard of it?
I highly recommend it.
Thanks Aunt Roxie!
Happy easy cooking!
