Ingredients

Turkey

1 medium (1 cup) onion, sliced

2 ribs (1 cup) celery, chopped

2 medium (1 cup) carrots, chopped

1 bay leaf

1 (2- to 2 1/2-pound) bone-in turkey breast half

1 (12-ounce) jar roasted turkey gravy

Salt, if desired

Pepper, if desired

Dumplings

1 cup pancake and baking mix

2 ounces (1/4 cup) shredded Cheddar cheese

2 teaspoons dried parsley

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Half & Half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with no-stick cooking spray. Place onion, celery, carrots and bay leaf in slow cooker. Top with turkey breast half. Pour gravy over top. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7-8 hours or until turkey is fork tender.

  2. STEP 2

    Increase heat setting to High. Remove turkey and bones from slow cooker; discard skin and bones. Keep turkey warm. Stir vegetables and sauce.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine baking mix, cheese and parsley in bowl; mix well. Add half & half. Stir just until moistened. Drop 8 rounded tablespoons of dumpling dough onto vegetables and sauce. Cover; cook 20-25 minutes or until dumplings are no longer doughy.

  4. STEP 4

    Serve turkey with sauce and dumplings. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Tip #1

- Make your morning prep even easier by slicing and chopping the onions, celery and carrots the night before. Place in covered container or resealable plastic food bags; store in refrigerator until ready to use.

Tip #2

- Use caution when cooking meat on the bone in slow cooker. Often meat becomes so tender the bones fall away. Make sure small bones are removed from the turkey mixture.

Yes, chicken can be substituted for the turkey in this recipe. Using a biscuit mix is another option for making the biscuits.
