Crockpot Turkey Breasts and Stuffing

Slow Cooker Turkey breast and stuffing
So I figured since I’m getting ready to start my Christmas baking, I would share a quick Turkey dinner with all of you. Beginning this past Tuesday I have been listening to Christmas music, packing away all my fall decorations, and planning my holiday shopping.
But I get it. You all are not there yet. You’re not ready for Christmas. I hear you loud and clear.
You want to get through Thanksgiving first. I used to be like that too. And now I’m not. No explanation, except I think it has something to do with the fact I love holiday baking. And I can only bake with Christmas music playing loudly. So in an effort to prolong my holiday baking season, I had to get festive sooner.
But back to you all. You folks who want to have a turkey dinner and pumpkin pie. How about a turkey dinner in the crockpot. You say it can’t be done?
Yes it can! Now you can have turkey any time of year, and pull out those Christmas decorations sooner! And as for the pumpkin pie? Make a batch of these instead…bite size pumpkin pie! Go ahead.

I was always one to wait until after thanksgiving to start thinking about Christmas, but this year for some reason, I am ready now too! Bring on the Christmas cheer!

What a great recipe! This would actually be really great for my Husband and I on Thanksgiving, since it will be just the two of us!

Yum. I can smell the sage in the dressing! I cannot wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.

Genius idea of a holiday meal in the crock pot. It seems like the holiday season has started a little (a LOT) earlier this year. At first it freaked me out, but I’m finding myself getting sucked into it. It’s good to know I’m not the only one listening to Christmas music in early November.

This would really take the stress out of holiday cooking. What a great recipe to use this Thanksgiving. So happy you shared this at Hunk of Meat Monday.

I love it!! What a great, easy idea! I’ll have to pick up some turkey next time I go shopping. I love the holidays! We’ve had our tree up for a week now! I am all about getting into the holiday spirit early! :)

Love it! Do you put the turkey in thawed or frozen?


Aimee November 24, 2011 at 12:56 pm

I stuck mine in there straight from the freezer!

Love your recipe! If I wanted to leave out the stuffing (my boys are not stuffing fans, GASP!) How would I need to adjust everything? Thank you <3

I made this tonight and it was a hit! Thank you so much for this recipe. I made a couple of modifications–I doubled the chicken broth and used a chopped carrot and three cloves of garlic in the stuffing mixture. I didn’t have poultry seasoning so I used Bragg’s Organic Sprinkle and it was perfect! I have a Hamilton Beach programmable slow cooker. It cooks hot, so six hours on low was perfect.
