Ingredients

To cook the turkey breast:

  • 2 pound turkey breast bone in, skin on
  • 1 large yellow onion sliced thick
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

To make the sliders:

  • 1 16 ounce package soft rolls
  • 6 tablespoons of desired spread anything from bacon onion jam, cranberry sauce, or mustard
  • 6-12 ounces sliced provolone
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon poppyseeds

Instructions

To cook the turkey breast in a slow cooker:

  • Place onion in the bottom of your slow cooker. Rinse clean the turkey breast and place on top of the onion, breast side up. Top breast meat with paprika, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Drizzle olive oil over the top. Cover with lid and set the slow cooker to low for 4-5 hours. Continue to cook on low until internal temperature reads 165 degrees F.

To cook turkey in the Instant Pot:

  • Place onion in the bottom of your Instant Pot. Add two cups water. Rinse clean the turkey breast and place on top of the onion, breast side up. Top breast meat with paprika, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Drizzle olive oil over the top. Cook on high pressure for 22-30 minutes (for 2-6 pound breast) and allow to release the pressure slowly once done. Insert an instant read thermometer and if it is not yet at 165 degrees F, continue to cook for several more minutes on high pressure.
  • Once turkey has finished cooking, slice against the grain to desired thickness.
