1. I would be happy just with cranberry sauce and cornbread dressing! My favorite part of the Thanksgiving dinner, well maybe pecan pie too. This will be my first year to cook it in 3 years, hope I remember how.

    And I hope you have a beautiful Thanksgiving, Brenda!

  2. I had it in mind to cook a breast in the crockpot and this recipe sounds delicious!!!! Thank you for the link.

    I'm making a green bean casserole too, making my own sauce instead of soup and frying up the onions myself too instead of canned. I don't know where I got the recipe but it is delicious and I've had comments on it about how good it was.

    Happy November and fixing Thanksgiving dinner ~ FlowerLady

  3. I make chicken and dressing in my crock pot all the time. I put a package of Stove Top in the bottom, add a few chopped onions and chopped celery, add chicken broth, then I lay 2 chicken breasts on top and dot with a couple pats of butter. Cover and turn on high and cook for approx 4 hours. This really is super delicious. Just a thought for something similar to the regular Turkey & Dressing.

  4. It is just Mom and I this year so the turkey breast in the crock pot sounds interesting to me! I love the stuffing and canned cranberry sauce so much! Good recipes.

  5. Those recipes look wonderful, Brenda!! It will be nice to have all those leftovers for future meals as well – that's always a huge plus! I look forward to seeing what you end up making! Convection ovens are wonderful and I love my crockpot so between the two I'm sure you'll come up with a wonderful meal. xo

  6. Thanksgiving is at my sister's house this year. We all bring a dish to share. I'll definitely try one of these yummy recipes! Thanks for posting them! Your meal plan looks so tasty…

  7. Brenda this all sounds so good. I was thinking of doing a turkey breast this year instead of a whole turkey. Cooking it in the crock pot would be wonderful. All the trimmings I'll have are the same like you share and I too like the canned cranberry sauce. We like the berry version best but have had the jellied style too. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend.

  8. This looks very much like what our meal will be on Thanksgiving. It's just the two of us since all family live a million miles away, and my husband always insists on cooking a turkey which he take the honors for. We will be doing a 12 lb turkey in the oven and freezing most of it at the end of the day on Thanksgiving. I think your idea of doing just turkey breasts in the crockpot is a great idea, and if you really love turkey, then do as many as you can fit in the crock pot and freeze the meat. It goes a long way. I do a green bean casserole also, except I don't add any sautéed mushrooms. My mouth waters just thinking about our dinner that day… YUMMO!

  9. The local grocery store often has split turkey breasts and they are more economical than a roasting chicken, and oh Brenda, cooking them in a crockpot is amazing. Super tender, then there's the broth towards a gravy or soup, etc. So I would highly recommend the crockpot for smaller cuts of turkey; absolutely! 🙂
