  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 large clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Madeira wine
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 to 2 ounces dried mushrooms, such as Porcini, soaked in 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with with 2 tablespoons cold water


Take turkey breast out of wrapping and netting, and rinse under cold water; pat dry. Place turkey breast in crockpot; add onion, thyme, garlic, salt & pepper, wine, honey, and mushrooms with soaking liquid. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. During the last 30 minutes pour liquid into a container to skim excess fat, if desired, and return broth to pot. Stir cornstarch mixture in and continue cooking until smooth and thickened.
