(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and I think this Slow Cooker Turkey with Mustard Sauce sounds like a great dish for fall.)

One of the things to love about slow cooker recipes is how they can turn inexpensive cuts of meat into gourmet dishes, and this comforting Slow Cooker Turkey with Mustard Sauce from Simply Recipes starts with turkey thighs, which are always a bargain.  The turkey is simmered with parsnips, carrots, and onions in a slightly-spicy mustard broth and when the turkey is tender potatoes are  added.  Then the meat is shredded and some chopped greens and a spicier mustard is stirred in right at the end.

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
  • Turkey thighs with skin and bones
  • salt
  • vegetable oil
  • onion
  • parsnips
  • carrots
  • chicken or turkey stock
  • brown mustard, yellow mustard
  • dry mustard powder
  • chipotle or chili powder
  • Yukon Gold or other potatoes
  • mustard greens or other greens
  • whole grain mustard.

  1. I am really excited for you and this new site. I'm subscribed! I have a brand new love for my slow cooker.

  2. Kat, so glad you like the site, thanks!

  3. How wonderful! I'm a slow cooker fan, and I've been actively looking for new recipes that fit my family's various dietary needs & preferences (We have a diabetic kidney patient, an auto-immune-suffering low carber limiting fats and additives, and a picky teenaged boy whose girlfriend has celiac disease.) and our budget. I really appreciate your recipe tags; they are very helpful! And I'm thrilled that you are focusing on "made from scratch," which lets me know I won't be wading through cans of condensed soup and tons of other chemicals.

    I've subscribed and am already excited to try several of the recipes you've posted.

  6. I'm always looking for new ways to cook turkey in the slow cooker, and I'd missed this the first time around. Thanks for spotlighting it again.

  8. I made this today, and it is delicious! The flavor is so full-bodied, and the greens add a a nice leafy touch. I am definitely adding it to my repertoire.

    I used bone-in chicken thighs because my co-op didn't have turkey thighs, and lacinato kale. Yum!

  9. Judy, thanks for giving feedback, and so glad you enjoyed it!
