These slow cooker Hot Turkey Sandwiches start with a can of beer and end with a stick of butter. So great for your next party! Or serve the shredded turkey for a fuss-free, delicious holiday meal any time of year.
Chicken base: Similar to bullion cubes, chicken base is highly concentrated chicken stock. You can find it in powder or paste forms. I love "Better than Bouillon" brand, a paste which is widely available and tastes delicious. Add more to taste in Step 3, if desired.
Bone-in turkey breast: Look for bone-in, skin-on turkey breast. You may have to ask your butcher at the grocery store. If you can't find it, you can substitute boneless skinless turkey breast.
Cornstarch: An optional thickening agent that turns the buttery turkey juice into more of a gravy.
Bun size: For family suppers, serve larger, burger-sized buns, but search out smaller rolls for parties with a large buffet spread.
Yield: Plan for 1 pound bone-in turkey breast per person (uncooked weight). So, a 10-pound breast will feed about 10 people. If you are cooking boneless turkey breast, plan on 3/4 pound per person (a 6-pound boneless turkey breast would feed about 8 people).
Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
