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.

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.
