Oh, I’m REALLY loving the slow cooker thing. Toss a bunch of stuff in there in the morning, wash up the prep area (yeah, who am I kidding), forget about it and then when you remember you have to cook dinner, it’s like it’s already done! Oh slow cooker, where have you been all my life!?
I had some turkey breast in the fridge (fancy that, suddenly the supermarkets here are carrying turkey breast. I mean, you can get it in the butchers most of the time, but pre-packaged was a rarity!). I also seem to have bought a tremendous amount of apples for a girl who doesn’t normally eat fruit. So I decided to experiment a bit. I have always been a fan of meat and fruit: duck and orange, pork and apple, steak with strawberries, bacon wrapped bananas. All right, I made that last one up… but you know, that gets me thinking……
Anyway. On with the easiest recipe -ever-. And if you ever have complained that turkey is a bit dry – this will change your mind.
- 1 kg turkey breast meat (I used cutlet things)
- 10 slices of bacon (Yes, I used a whole pack!)
- 2 apples, cored, peeled and chopped into wedges
- 100 grams of dried cranberries
- Lie 5 slices of bacon down on the bottom of your slow cooker.
- Layer the turkey breast on top of that.
- Pour in your dried cranberries and apple wedges.
- Top with the other 5 slices of bacon.
- Toss a bit of ground pepper on top.
- Turn on slow cooker to low for about 5 hours.
- I served this with quick stir fried green beans with garlic.
- By the way – the turkey sorta sticks together and shreds apart (Honest, that sentence makes sense.). So you just sorta pull out bits of it onto your plate. Serves…. well, probably quite a lot!
