Roast Turkey Thighs Done in the Crock-pot with a Cream Gravy !

Turkey Thighs made in the crock-pot with just a ladle of Creamed Gravy poured over the top!  SO GOOD!

3 Medium Turkey Thighs with Bone in & Skin On !
1 Tsp Salt
2 Tbs Parsley Flakes
1 Tbs Minced Onion Flakes
1 Tsp. Ground Sage
Pepper to taste

Lay turkey thighs in crock-pot skin side up. Sprinkle with all of the seasonings. Cook on low 6 hours. Remove turkey from crock-pot & make the following gravy. Allow 1 Turkey Thigh per serving!

2 Tbs Cornstarch
1/4 Cup Half & Half
Stir Half & Half into cornstarch whisking out all lumps. Now whisk this into the drippings in the bottom of the crock-pot. Whisk & cook in high until thick about 2 minutes. Return turkey to the crock-pot & keep warm until you are ready to serve ! makes about 1 & 1/2 Cups of gravy , perfect for those mashed potatoes!

So much better tasting & HEALTHY for you than all those frozen dinners that seem innocent enough to eat night after night. But it doesn't get easier than this & this way YOU control the salt & the fat content that so many of the GOOD TASTING FROZEN dinners pile into one of their meals. This costs less, is healthier for you AND you have enough leftover for a couple of Hot Turkey Sandwiches made from reheating the leftover gravy & adding the remaining turkey or have a cold turkey sandwich the next day. Either way YOU WIN !
