Cranberry Crock Pot Turkey Breast

I never would have thought to crockpot turkey, but my eyes have now been opened!  It's a good alternative to the traditional Sunday roast that I end up making so many Sundays.  I know it sounds weird to put a barbeque and cranberry gravy on your potatoes, but don't knock it until you've tried it.  It is fall apart tender and juicy, you will not be disappointed :)

This would also be perfect if you were having a small Thanksgiving with only a small definitely frees up some oven space for other things!!

Cranberry Crock Pot Turkey Breast

2 (1 1/2 lb.) turkey breast roasts (I found a 2.75 lb one that works just fine)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/2 c. diced celery (can omit)
1/2 c. diced onions
1 (16 oz.) can whole berry cranberry sauce
1 c. barbeque sauce, your favorite

Combine all ingredients in a crock pot. Cover and bake on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-8 hours. Remove turkey breasts from crock pot and slice thinly. Serve with sauce on the side.

Delicious with mashed potatoes - use the extra sauce as gravy!
