Holidays are stressful enough without having to carve the turkey when everyone is hungry and wants to eat. Why not bake the turkey before the day you are going to enjoy it. Then when your ready you can put it in the slow cooker or oven to heat it up and its ready to serve.
A whole turkey in the slow cooker? That's right and it can even still be frozen! How easy is that! Make sure you have a crockpot large enough so the lid fits. The meat just falls off the bones, so deboning is a synch. Great for turkey sandwiches.
