Crock Pot Thanksgiving Dinner Directions Recap
Make the stuffing mixture: Melt ¼ cup of the butter and then toss with the bread, onion, and celery. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Whisk the flour and chicken stock in the base of a 6-quart (or larger) slow cooker. Add the turkey and salt and pepper, toss to coat, and smooth into an even layer. Then top with the Brussels sprouts.
Add the stuffing mixture and smooth into an even layer. Nestle the potatoes onto one side of the stuffing and the sweet potatoes into the other side. Cover with the lid and cook on high for 4 to 5 hours, or until you can insert a fork easily into both types of potatoes.
Transfer the potatoes to one bowl and the sweet potatoes to another bowl. Add ¼ cup butter to each bowl and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the sweet potatoes on top of the stuffing, then spread the mashed potatoes on top of the sweet potatoes. Top with the fried onions and serve.
