Slow cooker turkey is back, as fast food has it.
And as of today, it’s legal in the United States.
While it’s still hard to make a slow cooker ham sandwich at home, at least you can make your own turkey.
But before you get started, be sure you’re eating a whole turkey, like we did yesterday.
You may not have time to make it all in one sitting, but you can still make the turkey as a whole.
What you need: 1 large turkey, cut into chunks.
(You can also make a large turkey sandwich if you don’t have a lot of left over.)
Instructions: Heat a medium skillet or cast iron pan over medium heat.
Add the turkey and cook until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes.
Remove from the heat.
Pour in the broth, and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low and cook for about 1 hour, until the turkey is cooked through.
Remove the turkey from the broth and reserve.
Add some salt and pepper to taste.
(To make the gravy, in a small bowl, whisk together the chicken stock and Worcestershire sauce.)
Add the onions and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 15 minutes.
Stir in the cheddar and cumin.
(If you want a thicker gravy, add 1/2 teaspoon each of sugar and cinnamon to the gravy.)
Add a tablespoon of flour to the pan to make sure the turkey browns all the way through.
Return the turkey to the pot and cover the lid, leaving about a 1/4-inch headspace.
Cook on high heat, covered, for about 8 hours, or until the mixture is tender.
Serve with bread and mayonnaise.
Notes * If you have a slow-cooker, you can use the meat to make the casserole.
If not, just use a piece of turkey to make sauce.
If you’re making a sandwich, simply make a turkey sandwich using the turkey.
(Note: If you don.t have any leftovers from a turkey roast, you could freeze the turkey.)
* If your slow cooker isn’t a slow cooker, it could use a cast iron skillet, which has a lot less steam, which may be easier to get through the turkey when you’re cooking it.
This may also help make it easier to use the turkey in the slow cooker.
