Crock Pot Turkey

Ok; we had the best dinner tonight! It was so good. Who says you only have to have a good turkey breast at Thanksgiving? I made the best turkey, and it was so moist and tender, and easy.
Turkey Breast
1 small boneless turkey breast (frozen, I run it under hot water just to get the wrapping off)
½ small white onion
½ tsp minced garlic
1 extra large chicken bouillon cube or 2 small chicken bouillon cubes
½ cup water
Salt and pepper for seasoning

 Pour water into crock pot. Add bouillon and garlic. Cut your onion into four pieces and place them in the bottom of your crock pot. Place your turkey breast on top of the onion pieces. Season the turkey with salt and pepper. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 7-8 hours.

Use the gravy packet that comes with the turkey. Heat it up over medium heat with about ½ cup of liquid from your crock pot after your turkey is done.

Green beans

2 cans whole green beans
1 can diced whole potatoes or sliced (drain liquid out of can)
2 pieces of bacon
¼ cup diced onion
2 beef bouillon cubes
Salt and pepper

Brown bacon and onion together in pan. Once bacon is brown and onion is soft, add potatoes. Sauté for about 2 minutes in pan. Season with salt and pepper. Add 2 cans green beans and bouillon cubes. Bring to boil. Simmer for about 25 minutes.

And we had cheesecake for dessert, but that was from a box. I would love a good homemade cheesecake if anyone has one to share!
