Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

this looks wonderful but I have a question. Can I cook 2 breasts at the same time and how would I adjust the time ? Thanks !!

Hi there! We do not recommend cooking two 3-pound turkey breasts in a round slow cooker on top of each other. If you have a rectangular slow cooker, then you can cook the turkey breasts side by side.

This was FABULOUS! In fact so much so that my hubby suggested we make it for Thanksgiving. Honestly as we get older, we love dinners that not only taste so good but are easy, not time consuming and also quick clean up.....this has it all. The stuffing was perfect - PLEASE, stuffing should be mushy! The only difference I did was to use fresh green beans I will add that it's a little tenuous trying to get the veggies out so you can mix up the stuffing, but other than that, looking forward to this on the 26th! Only thing I will do is maybe have some baked sweet potatoes on the side nuke those and make my homemade cranberries. Truly a keeper for Turkey dinner year round! BTW, the frozen breast I bought from Walmart even had a gravy packet in it! Thanks!

Can I use a frozen turkey breast?

Yes, you can start with frozen turkey. The time should remain the same.

I am making this for a 2nd time for xmas...and this is what i found from making it for thanksgiving...the carrots do not come out dont use them...if you use stuffing cubes, it comes out stove I omitted the mushrooms...and subbed the water for chicken came out perfect...the turkey was great, and so was the stuffing...will make this again and again!!

Stuffing turns to mush-use sweet potatoes instead!

Tried using stove top stuffing mix, does not work gets too mushy. Stick to larger stuffing bread cubes. Other than that taste delicious

I will have to try it,Sounds OOOOOOOOh So Good!

has anybody made this recipe yet? would like to hear reviews before i try it.

Cube up some bread. Drizzle a bit of melted butter or oil and add a bit of crumbled sage, pepper, parsley, chicken base. Toss together to mix and spread single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at low temp until slightly crunchy. Voila!! Now you have your own seasoned stuffing cubes and you control the seasoning. To make unseasoned, let a few slices of bread get stale by setting out on counter on a paper towel. Crumble/cube the next day. Voila!! Unseasoned bread cubes/croutons. Don't buy these at the store. They are using up their stale bread, too.

This looks very easy to cook and quite delicious

If I can't find stuffing cubes at the grocery store, can I substitute with a box of "Stove Top Stuffing" in a box.?

Thanks for your question. You can use a box of stuffing mix, just don't add the seasoning packet, since this recipe already includes seasoning.

yes, you can, but you can make your own bread cube aslo

Yes you can, you can also omit the seasonings in this recipe, if you like the flavor of stove top

try cutting sweet potatoes instead of carrots

I was thinking the same to add sweet potatoes, not replace the carrots, that way you have both.

how many carrots ??

It says 6. I'd put as many as I wanted.

What are "stuffing cubes" and where do you find them in a grocery store?

you can find stuffing cubes in the bread dept usually on bottm self it's just bags of stuffing like you buy for stuffing turkeys but they are in little cubes

Oops! Yes, it's 1/4 cup dried cranberries. Thanks for catching this. We fixed it. Enjoy the recipe!

Mr. Food how many cranberries do you use in this recipe?

In the recipe you call 1/4 sweetened dried cranberries. I am hoping it is 1/4 cup but could it be 1/4 lb?
