Slow Cooker Turkey Breast with Stuffing

I’ve made lots of recipes in the Slow Cooker (or do you call it a crockpot? I always wonder!) but this is the first time I’ve ever made a Turkey Breast and Stuffing in one and boy was I happily surprised. The result was a moist and delicious turkey that I didn’t have to tend to all day – just set it and forget it.

This turkey breast specifically said “Slow Cooker Friendly” so it was exactly what I was looking for! I also like that it had no hormones or steroids added – I don’t think I ever noticed this before on a turkey label but that’s probably because I rarely make a turkey but with this easy recipe, now I will…that makes my family happy!

We're going to spend Thanksgiving with relatives this year, so I won't have to do any cooking. This will be perfect for us to have a mini Thanksgiving dinner before or after for the fall season. Thanks for the recipe!

Oh my gosh! I have never thought to use the slow cooker to cook a turkey! But then again, I haven't cooked a turkey in ages. I bet this would keep the breast from drying out and I love your additions to the stuffing (except we call it dressing here in the South!)

This sounds delicious and I love that it is made in a slow cooker. I'm definitely trying this very soon!
