Easy and Fast Eats

At Cold Comfort Cottage we are slowly eating our way through the remains of our Sunday dinner. This is about the easiest recipe ever, and tastes great, and makes a lot...what's not to like?

Cranberry Turkey Breast
1 turkey breast (7-8 pounds)
2 cans whole-berry cranberry sauce
2 packages dry onion soup (or onion-mushroom soup) mix
water as needed


The evening before your meal: Place the turkey breast in a crockpot. Pour cranberry sauce over the turkey. Sprinkle soup mix over the cranberry sauce. Maybe add a cup or two of water to the bottom of the crock. Set crockpot on High until you have some warmth and a little bubbling action going, then turn the crockpot down to Low and let the turkey cook about 10 hours, or until the meat is thoroughly cooked.

We ate this with buttermilk mashed potatoes. Yum. And yesterday FT made turkey enchiladas with some of the leftover turkey. Double yum.

If this recipe looks familiar, by the way, it's because we've also used it with pork and beef roast -- just dial back the ingredients to one can of cranberry sauce and one packet of soup mix. It's all good.

I read this thinking, "I wonder if she knows you can do this with a pork roast too"--then got to the last paragraph. Yes, it's delicious.

Sounds like a winner and something my husband would like. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks.
