There is always a problem with the holidays of having enough room the oven to cook everything.
This year I decided to put the Turkey in my 7 quart slow cooker (like this). The smaller slow cooker did not accommodate the stuffing too. We used 6lbs of turkey breast, not an entire turkey.
If you want to cook an entire turkey outside the oven, I’d suggest using a roaster like this.
What you’ll need:
slow cooker liner for the slow cooker
thawed turkey breast
slow cooker with lid
Follow the stuffing directions (mine required butter and chicken stock/water.
If you put the stuffing under the turkey, it will be soggy when it’s done, but sacraficing a bit if stuffing, creates a barrier to help keep the turkey moist. I went with a layer of stuffing.
Place the turkey into the slow cooker.
Put the stuffing around the turkey breasts and cover. Set temperature to high.
Cook until the turkey temperature is 165 degrees, according to the Food Safety site (mine was 175).
Remove and serve.
