I love cooking anything in the crockpot, why I had never thought of cooking a whole turkey in the crockpot is beyond me. I saw a recipe for a whole turkey crockpot tutorial on Youtube and had to try it, after all, I love turkey at Thanksgiving and I also love my crockpot so it was an obvious match made in Heaven for me. The recipe couldn’t be easier, I just put the turkey in the crockpot, then added salt pepper and butter. I didn’t bother to rub the turkey with the butter, salt, and pepper mixture. I just plopped them all together and set the crockpot on low for 7 to 9 hours. The beauty of this Crockpot Turkey Recipe is that there is no wrong way to do it if you want to rub the turkey with salt, pepper, and butter that is fine if you want to rub them with a steak seasoning such as Montreal Steak Seasoning or stuff the turkey with sage and onion stuffing that is also fine. The beauty of this recipe is that you can do whatever you want, there is no right or wrong way to do this crockpot turkey recipe, just set your crockpot to go for 6 or 7 hours they will still turn out delicious. Just wash and plop that bird right on in.
Then you just let the magical crockpot do it’s thing. You can put the turkey under the broiler if you would like to have the skin crispy, but either way, it’s going to be delicious.
