I found this recipe out of a little Betty Crocker Crock Pot cook book years ago. I tried it out on my family and it was a success. The key to the vegetables is to cut them into small enough "bite sized" pieces so they can cook thoroughly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a 5-6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Place turkey in cooker.
  3. Sprinkle with garlic and pepper.
  4. Place potatoes and carrots around the turkey.
  5. Mix gravy, flour, sage, and worcestershire sauce in a small bowl; pour over turkey and vegetables.
  6. Cover and cook on Low heat setting for 7-8 hours.
  7. Remove turkey and carve. Serve with the vegetables and gravy.

This was outstanding! I don't know personally how it tasted (I don't eat bone-in turkey), but I smelled it all day and it was amazing. My family ate it and enjoyed it to no end! I will probably use a little more sage next time, but I will definitely be making it again. The turkey gravy ended up too greasy to use as a gravy for the potatoes, but that wasn't a problem since they absorbed so much of the flavor. I also threw an onion in there since nothing in our family is made without onions. LOL! Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe!

This was excellent! I bought a whole turkey (on sale) and deboned it myself by removing the back spine, then split the breast bone right down the middle; I did not debone the legs, thighs or wings. It fit perfectly in my larger crock pot and family had the choice of dark or white meat. Next time I will add more potatoes & carrots. I served it with homemade rolls and roasted brussels sprouts. This was a great holiday dinner! It was voted a "keeper" for future celebration meals.
