SLOW COOKER TURKEY AND DRESSING


Can you prepare a taste of a holiday meal in your slow cooker?
You bet you can!
I have learned to dress up a few boxes of Stove Top stuffing mix
and 
prepare a delicious comfort food meal my family
requests over and over!

In fact, I have given my recipe to many
who want a holiday meal that is easy to prepare
without a lot of preparation!


Here is what you need~
1 package of Turkey breasts or Turkey tenderloins
2 boxes of Stove Top Stuffing Mix
(Estelle's combines Chicken and Cornbread)
1 cup torn pieces of french bread
1 can Cream of Chicken or Mushroom Soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1 32- ounce carton of chicken broth
1/4 cup butter
1/2 onion, chopped
2 stalks of celery chopped
Salt, Pepper, Sage and Parsley to taste



Saute onion and celery in 1/4 cup melted butter.
Add both boxes of stuffing mix and seasonings
and stir to combine.
Pour chicken broth over this mixture, 
saving 1/2 cup of the broth.

Pour 1/2 cup remaining chicken broth in crock pot.
Place turkey tenderloins on top of broth.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Spread sour cream over turkey, then top with 1/2 can of your soup.

Top with stuffing mix. 
Spoon the remaining 1/2 can soup over the stuffing mixture.

Cover and turn crock pot on low
then cook for 6-8 hours.
I add 1 cup of torn french bread into the stuffing mixture,
about one hour before cooking has completed.
This adds great texture to the dressing.

I also top this turkey and dressing mixture
with a little turkey gravy! 


This is just marvelous served with
lemon pepper green beans
and
honey glazed carrots!

  1. :-) Would never think of doing this, Crock-Pot-style. :-) Guess you can do anything, in a Crock Pot.

  4. Thank you for liking my blog Background. :-)

    I believe, we both, make our own Backgrounds. I am using pretty home wall paper samples, or pretty fabric samples. Love both of them, for Background sources.

    Happy Spring hugs,
    Tessa
