Thanksgiving Crockpot Recipes

Put your crockpot to work this Thanksgiving to simplify things and free up your hands and oven space for other things. We have crockpot versions of probably all of your Thanksgiving favorites. Try one out this Thanksgiving or if you own mutiple crockpots or can borrow one from a relative, you can really make your Thanksgiving cooking a breeze. I’ve even heard of people cooking an entire Thanksgiving meal with an army or slow cookers!

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Not only does using a crockpot free up valuable oven space, they are great for making things a little in advance and keeping them warm until everyone is ready to eat.

Below are some of my favorite ways to turn a slow cooker into a Thanksgiving day assistant.

Make the Turkey in the slow cooker.

Turkey is probably my favorite Thanksgiving food to cook in a crockpot. You’ll have to settle for cooking a turkey breast since it’s impossible to fit an entire turkey in a slow cooker, but you’ll be amazed at how tender and juicy turkey breast cooked in the crockpot is. Plus, you can easily turn the crockpot cooking juices into a gravy to serve alongside the turkey.
