Slow Cooker Turkey

We had this for Easter (rather than the traditional ham), and it was melt in your mouth delicious. Soooo good. This would also be a great way to make turkey if you have a smaller crowd at Thanksgiving time. Original recipe here.

5 slices bacon
1 (5 1/2 pound) bone-in turkey breast, skin removed
1/2 teaspoon garlic pepper (I just used plain garlic powder, and plain black pepper)
1 (10.5 ounce) can turkey gravy (I used a packet, plus a little more water than what it called for)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried sage (I didn't have sage, so I used savory and rosemary)

Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain and crumble.

Spray a slow cooker with cooking spray. Place turkey in the slow cooker. Season with garlic pepper. In a bowl, mix the bacon, gravy, flour, Worcestershire sauce, and sage. Pour over turkey in the slow cooker.

Cover slow cooker, and cook turkey 8 hours on Low. Use drippings to make gravy if desired.
