Ground turkey is a healthy alternative to ground beef that is usually lower in fat and calories, but supplies just as much protein. Often ground turkey is browned in a skillet before adding to recipes or formed into patties to make a turkey burger. But your slow cooker can create a tender and juicy pot of ground turkey that can be added to any number of recipes. A few seasonings and several hours of cooking are all it takes to successfully prepare ground turkey in your slow cooker.
Spray the interior of your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
Place your ground turkey in the slow cooker, and sprinkle it with salt and pepper..
Add the dried parsley, garlic powder and dried oregano.
Cover the slow cooker tightly with the lid, cook it on low heat for three to four hours.
Take the lid off the slow cooker, and gently stir the ground turkey to break it up into bite-sized pieces.
Re-cover the cooker, and cook the ground turkey for three to four more hours.
Remove the ground turkey with a slotted spoon.
