Hands down, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I wait all year long for this dinner. The turkey, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce…I love it all!
My family takes turns with the holidays and Thanksgiving is my holiday. And, I have to admit that I love it!
I usually start prepping on the Monday before Thanksgiving so that I’m not overwhelmed on Thursday. I have a checklist that I created to help keep me organized and on track.
Getting the turkey ready is the most daunting part. I’m always worried that I haven’t allotted enough time for it to cook properly. I try not to overthink it, because I’m also afraid that if I cook it for too long, it will dry out. And, no one likes dry turkey. I have visions of the scene in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation where everyone is gnawing on the leather-like turkey.
However, by cooking a turkey in the slow cooker, you can ensure you will have juicy, flavorful meat.
I find that an average turkey breast fits beautifully in my slow cooker. But don’t worry…even though it’s not a full turkey, you can still stuff it! I’m a stuffing-in-the-bird kinda girl. I grew up on it and I love it. I couldn’t imagine it any other way!
Whether you try this recipe for Thanksgiving or just a regular, plain old day, this Slow Cooker Turkey and Stuffing will get gobbled up! Get it? Gobbled up? I crack myself up sometimes.
If you really want to take the flavor over the top, try making this easy Homemade Poultry Seasoning. It’s so much better than the store-bought stuff.
