Turkey


Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
4 pounds turkey breast, skin on, bone in or boneless (if using frozen, thaw it)
1 head of garlic, cut in half horizontally
1 onion, unpeeled, cut in half
5 sprigs of thyme (or 2 teaspoons dried thyme)

Directions:
Directions:
Pat the turkey dry all over with paper towels. Slather with the rub, using most for the side and top.

Place the garlic, onion and thyme face down in the slow cooker. Place the turkey breast on top so it is elevated. Slow cook on low for 6 hours or until internal temperature reads 165F when thermometer is inserted into the middle. Check internal temperature at 5 hours, if you can.

Remove turkey from the slow cooker (do not leave in slow cooker on warm setting) and let it rest for 20 minutes before crisping the skin.

Preheat broiler.

Place an oven shelf 1 foot from the heat source. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes until the skin is crispy. Keep an eye on it; it browns very quickly!

Serve immediately with gravy on the side.

Chicken broth or water, for topping up liquid
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
cup flour
Salt and pepper

Directions:
Directions:
Strain the liquid from the slow cooker into a measuring cup, squishing the vegetables to extract all the flavor. If you are short of 2 cups, top up with chicken broth or water as needed.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and mix to combine. Pour about cup of liquid into the flour mixture and mix until it forms a paste. Slowly add remaining liquid, stirring as your go. Use a whisk if required to make the gravy smooth. Simmer until thickened.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with turkey.
