Crockpot Thanksgiving Dinner

November 7, 2015
Boneless turkey breast slow cooks with sweet potatoes, carrots, celery and cornbread stuffing. The perfect, EASY way to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with your family!






WOW does it feel like November today, woohoo!

For the past two days I've been contemplating turning the air conditioner on in our house. Between the weird, humid, mid-70 degree weather, and a newborn constantly sleeping on me, it was HOT in this house! Reuben was loving it though, this baby needs to be snuggled and cuddly warm to fall deep asleep. 

I'm honestly on the hunt for a few more fleece footed pajamas for him for when the weather starts getting really cold!

I know every phase lasts for a small time, but he's really turning out to be a great sleeper already. I'm knocking on wood at the moment, can you tell?! In all honesty, both Silas and Wesley were fantastic sleepers from very early on, so we really can't complain about that. Silas was sleeping through the night at 7 weeks old, and Wesley was sleeping 10 hours straight, only waking up once in the middle of the night to eat. Reuben already, at 5 weeks old, is sleeping 3-4 hours at a time!

...so can someone explain to me why in the heck I'm still SO tired all the time?!





Despite how exhausted I am these days, this Crockpot Thanksgiving Dinner is getting me all excited to spend the upcoming holidays with these three crazy kids. This is the perfect turkey dinner for a small Thanksgiving celebration at your house - the bird, stuffing, and veggies all cook together! Plus your oven is completely freed up to bake pies for dessert. My favorite part!



Crockpot Thanksgiving Dinner

Ingredients
  • 2 - 3 lb boneless, skinless turkey breast, thawed
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 2 (6 oz) boxes cornbread stuffing mix, dry
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
Cooking Directions
  1. Place thawed turkey breast in bottom of slow cooker (mine came with a netting holding it together that I removed, but you can leave the netting on - it keeps the turkey together while cooking).
  2. Add in the vegetables, top with dry stuffing mixes, and pour chicken broth over all ingredients.
  3. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours or on high 4-5 hours or until turkey is cooked through.
  4. Remove stuffing & veggies to a serving bowl. Remove turkey to a platter, straining the juices into the slow cooker.
  5. Allow turkey to rest 5 minutes before slicing. Use reserved juices to moisten stuffing and turkey slices as needed.






The stuffing, carrots, and sweet potatoes were the perfect side dish - yum!
