If you are hosting your family’s Thanksgiving feast, like I am  this year, the use of a crock pot may come into play and really help us out.  It’s always handy to have another helper in the kitchen and your crock pot could be your best friend this Thanksgiving Day.

Here are my Top Five picks for Thanksgiving crock pot recipes that will give you some extra time on this year’s Thanksgiving Day!

Cris Goode, of Recipes That Crock says, “Feeding a crowd? These Creamy Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes from 101 Super-Easy Slow-Cooker Recipes Cookbook are a must! ”




You maybe you want to cook the turkey breast in the crock pot to free up some oven time… again, Cris Goode, of Recipes That Crock says, “Are you looking for a great recipe for a perfectly cooked juicy turkey breast straight from the crock pot? This recipe produces the most flavorful turkey our family has ever had!”

Here’s the recipe…. Crock Pot Turkey Breast




Can’t have Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, in my house!  Here is Recipes That Crock’s Crustless Pumpkin Pie.   I am SO trying this one….no crust = healthier version of one of my favorite pies!




Pumpkin Pie not your thing?  Maybe this Praline Apple Crisp will work for your feast.  Nice and warm at serving time, topped with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.  Yum!




On a cool, crisp Thanksgiving Day, you may want to warm your insides with this Hot Caramel Apple Cider by Jeanette of Fencerow to Fencerow.



I hope these crock pot recipes will help you spend a little more time with your family this holiday season!  I myself may need to buy or borrow an additional crock pot to have a couple of these fantastic recipes going at once!

Much love to you and yours this holiday season.  ~Nancy
