The holidays can be hectic.  Make your holiday dinner a little simpler with this easy Slow Cooker Turkey and Stuffing recipe! It’s my favorite Thanksgiving easy crock pot recipe

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.
