Crockpot Thanksgiving Turkey

This is by far my favorite way to prepare a turkey! This recipe is so quick and easy to prepare and the slow cooker does all the cooking for you. The turkey is so full of flavor and tastes so good! You will never want to make the turkey the same way again.

Key Ingredients You’ll Need

Turkey: You will need a boneless turkey so that the bones don’t get mixed into the meat.

Seasonings: You will need a combination of brown gravy mix, ranch seasoning, poultry seasoning, and pepper to flavor your turkey.

How To Make Slow Cooker Turkey

Step 1. Open the turkey by removing the package and netting. Place the turkey into the crockpot. Add 1 packet of the brown gravy mix, 1 envelope of ranch seasoning, and the water into a small bowl and combine until fully incorporated. Add the mixture on top of the turkey in the crockpot. In a small bowl, add the paprika, poultry seasoning, and pepper and combine before adding the top of the Turkey. Put the butter onto the turkey.

Step 2. Seal the slow cooker with a lid and cook for 3-5 hours on low or until the internal temperature in the thickest part of the meat reads 165-170 degrees. Take the turkey out once cooked and allow it to cool slightly for 10 minutes before cutting.

Step 3. While the turkey cools slightly, add the brown gravy into the crockpot and whisk with the rest of the liquid before serving with the cooked turkey. Enjoy!

What To Serve With Slow Cooker Turkey?

You can serve this incredible recipe with almost anything. Of course, it is a must to serve this recipe on Thanksgiving or on Christmas. But, it also tastes great with mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and green beans, and then you can wash it all down with a pumpkin pie!

How To Store & Reheat Slow Cooker Turkey?

Place the leftovers in an airtight container for the best storage method. You can store this recipe in the fridge for up to 3 days or you can place the recipe in a freezer. I like to carve my turkey and keep it in the freezer to use for other dinner ideas.

This recipe also works with a bone in the breast but will require a little longer cook time.
You can leave the netting on your breast to help hold it together but it can be messy to remove after cooking and I have not had any trouble with the turkey falling apart without the netting.
You can pop the turkey under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the outside if desired.
I love making this during the week and making the most amazing turkey sandwiches out of it.
If you want you can add some carrots, onion, and celery underneath the turkey for some aromatics.
Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
