Frozen Turkey - You can use the whole turkey with giblets removed or the boneless Turkey pictured
(1) Onion, quartered
(1) Stick of salted butter, quartered
Salt and Pepper to taste
Make sure that you remove all unnecessary parts from the turkey, this includes giblets and/or gravy packets. Generously salt and pepper the outside of turkey. Place all the ingredients in the crockpot and let it sit on low for up to eight hours.
The turkey thaws as it cooks and it creates a thin but delicious broth. You can use it to dress your turkey or you can thicken it with some flour or corn starch over heat (be sure to stir consistently so it doesn't burn).
No matter the season, the result is a delicious, Thanksgiving-like turkey. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Wait, don't throw away those leftovers! Here's a great Turkey Salad recipe for Day 2, and it's also perfect for a packed lunch.
