Crock Pot Turkey With Sage

"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."

  1. 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!
  2. 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.


I have always loved to cook. My Gramma used to let me help make everything when I was a little girl, so I've spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I've been diligently collecting tasty recipes so I can build up my own "family favorites" for my new husband. I work full time, so I don't have as much time as I'd like to be in the kitchen, but I get very excited whenever I have an extra afternoon to get messy in the kitchen!
