This is a delicious and tender turkey breast. The recipe fuses the traditional flavors of bacon, turkey, and ranch seasoning with the moistness of my beer-can chicken.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Spray the inside of a large slow cooker with cooking spray.

  • Stir butter and 1/2 the ranch dressing mix together in a bowl until completely combined.

  • Carefully loosen each side of the skin of the turkey breast and spread the butter-ranch mixture under the skin. Transfer turkey, skin-side up, to the slow cooker.

  • Sprinkle remaining 1/2 ranch dressing mix over turkey breast. Lay bacon strips evenly across turkey. Pour beer around turkey breast.

  • Cook in the slow cooker set to High for 1 hour. Reduce heat to Low and cook until turkey is tender, 6 to 8 hours.

Cook's Note:

To reduce the fat from the bacon, this dish may be prepared a day in advance: slice the turkey from the bone, place into large bowl, strain the broth over the meat and refrigerate. The next day, skim the fat from the top, and reheat on the stove-top on low.
