Slow Cooker Christmas Dinner

Want a stress free Christmas? Then cook your Christmas dinner in your slow cooker. Chop up your veg and bung it in for one tasty Christmas lunch. Megan at Got To Be Gourmet has already given it a whirl and come up with this festive slow cooker christmas dinner recipe.



  • 5 turkey breast fillets, chopped into chunks
  • 10 Brussels sprouts, chopped into halves
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and sliced
  • 1 leek, finely sliced
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 pack of packet mix stuffing (I used Paxo Thyme & Leek)
  • 4 chipolata sausages
  • 4 rashers of unsmoked bacon
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • Cranberry sauce (to serve)



  1. Heat up the slow cooker and mix the flour and chicken stock in it
  2. Add the turkey and coat in the flour/chicken stock mix, with a sprinkle of salt and pepper
  3. Now add the halved Brussels sprouts on top of the turkey
  4. Next prepare the stuffing in a bowl (just need to add boiling water) - if I was preparing a full Christmas Dinner for family, I would make my own stuffing from scratch, but for experimentation purposes, in this case I used a packet mix! Then add the stuffing as the next layer in the slow cooker
  5. The next layer is made up of the carrots, parsnips and leeks
  6. Place the potatoes on top, to make the final full layer, with a dash of salt and pepper
  7. And finally, what British Christmas Dinner would be complete without Pigs in Blankets? Wrap the chipolatas in the bacon and place them on top of the potato layer
  8. Pop on the lid and leave to cook for around 5 hours
