Ah, yes, the mighty slow cooker. If you’ve got one, there’s no need to stress during this Thanksgiving (and if you don’t, here’s one of our favorites)! We’ve got three simple slow cooker hacks you can use to save you time and effort (and space!) this year.
Tip #1: Keep Your Crescent Rolls Warm in Your Slow Cooker
Made crescents ahead of your dinner? Not to worry! There’s no need to microwave your crescents or keep them warm in the oven when your trusty slow cooker comes in handy. To reheat crescent rolls, line the bottom of your slow cooker insert with a damp, clean kitchen towel. Place your baked crescents in the slow cooker and cover the top with a second damp, clean towel. Cover your slow cooker with the lid and set heat to Low for up to 30 minutes. Bonus: You can keep them on the Warm setting for up to 2 hours before serving!
Tip #2: Keep Your Sliced Turkey Warm in Your Slow Cooker
Crescents aren’t the only thing that keep well in the slow cooker. Want to keep the prized bird warm and fresh for dinner? While oven-roasted turkey can dry out if it’s not served quickly, this slow-cooker turkey breast recipe keeps your turkey juicy and ready-to-eat with just two simple steps. Bonus: If you need more time before serving, adjust your slow cooker’s heat to the Warm setting.
Tip #3: Save Space in Your Oven with These Slow-Cooker Recipes
Whether you’re taking your dishes to relatives or hosting Thanksgiving yourself, oven space is always a priority wherever you are. Avoid any oven over-crowding by making one of these slow-cooker recipes.
