The BEST Turkey & Dressing

I know most people have limited oven space when it comes to making holiday meals. Normally people are looking for alternative cooking methods for side dishes since the turkey takes up most of the oven. I thought I would try making Turkey and Cornbread Dressing in the slow cooker. OMG! Why haven’t I done this before? It was amazing and SO easy to make! It also freed up the oven for all of the sides and a pecan pie!

How to Make Slow Cooker Turkey & Dressing

This is very easy to make. Start with making the cornbread dressing. Crumble cornbread and some wheat bread in a large bowl. Add chopped onion and celery. Mix in cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, salt, pepper, and sage. Mix well and place in the slow cooker. Top the dressing with a thawed boneless turkey breast. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.

  • I make the cornbread at least one day before making this dish.
  • Here is my recipe for Homemade Cornbread: https://www.plainchicken.com/southern-cornbread/
  • If your slow cooker lid won’t fit after adding the turkey, cover the slow cooker with aluminum foil.
  • Cook until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.

What to Serve with Turkey

The turkey turned out so tender and juicy! And the dressing. O-M-YUM! I could just eat the dressing as my holiday meal and be happy. It is my favorite! This goes great with all of your favorite holiday sides. Here are a few of our favorite holiday side dish recipes from the blog to complete the meal:

    1. I don't think this dressing recipe would work with plain white bread in place of all the cornbread. You can try it, but I'm not sure of the results.

  1. This looks and sounds fantastic. How did you make the gravy? I'm assuming all the liquid in the crock pot is absorbed into the dressing. Thank you and have a very blessed Thanksgiving!

    1. Awesome! Thank you. I just looked at this recipe done in the oven and now I am torn as to which one I want to try. We'll be in Canada for Thanksgiving, so maybe I'll make them the oven version and when we get home I'll make the crock pot version for us.
