This is a great recipe for Thanksgiving AND anytime of the year that you crave an easy satisfying meal. We often have a smoked turkey and this breast is an easy way to have extra meat as needed. Also since the stuffing is cooked in the slow cooker, that's one less dish you have to work into your oven schedule!
Slow Cooker Turkey and Dressing

I have made this recipe twice and this last time was better than the first. It was absolutely delicious! My crock pot gets buring hot so cooking this dish the recommended am't of time does not work for me. I cooked it on high for one hour, according to the recipe. Then turned the dial to low and cooked for only 2 1/2 -3 hours longer and it was perfect---meat was moist and delicous. I used a Butterball turkey breast. My husband loved it and we had plenty of leftovers---this is so easy and so good. You won't be sorry!

If I could give it a 0, I would. The turkey was moist and flavorful, but what I thought would happen to the dressing- did. It was so mushy! All of the fat and juices from the turkey went into the dressing and since it's a slow cooker, it keeps everything moist and doesn't allow for it to dry out! YUCK! We wouldn't even eat it and my husband is not a picky eatter.

I have been making this recipe for years. It is probably not presentation worthy for entertaining guests at Thanksgiving, but definitely turns out to be a more delicious and moist turkey than any I have had served at Thanksgiving! I usually make this after Thanksgiving after returning from my mom's house without leftovers. It definitely satisfies!

Yes, I made adjustments, but not that many. I simply omitted the stuffing mix and made it (with the broth cellery and onion) after the reccommended cook time The turkey was/is amazing! Super easy and doing the stuffing separate allowed me to fit, er.. cram, a huge turkey breast into my 3.5 quart slow cooker. Honestly, this was so good and so easy - I may never cook a whole bird again!

It smelled fabulous, and it tasted good. The stuffing managed to come out both burned on the bottom and soggy from all the juices in the bird. I think next time I will just put some vegetables in the pot, and then make up the stuffing near the end with the accumulated liquid.
