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!

  1. What interesting additions to the stuffing. I think apricots would be good to try next time. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I've never thought to make a turkey in a slow cooker. Shocking because I try everything else. This sounds really great and like a great way to make Thanksgiving dinner a snap! K

    I wonder if my turkey would fit in my slowcooker ? This recipe looks fabulous though 🙂

      I put mine in first before trying this just to be sure. Thanks so much and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Christine says:

    I am going to try this after Thanksgiving, I have to know if this works because it seems so easy and looks almost effortless! Thanks for sharing this at the DI & DI Link Party.

    1. Mary Beth says:

      Thank you, Christine. Have a wonderful week.

    2. Mary Beth says:

      Thank you, Christine!

  5. I can't wait to try this Mary Beth! I'm searching for turkey breast next time I head to the store... I'm not waiting for Thanksgiving!

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

  7. 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!)

  8. 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!
