Thanksgiving: Turkey and Stuffing Crock Pot Casserole

With Thanksgiving just around the corner here in Canada, I thought I would share an easy and delicious crock pot meal that will give that Thanksgiving taste and flavour without all the fuss. It's the perfect meal for empty nesters, students, or people on their own for the holidays.

Best of all, it's made with real ingredients and features my Magic Stuffing Mix (a mix that is soooo much better than store bought Stove Top, and an easy recipe for decadently, creamy, pan gravy!)

All of the components for the dish can be made the day before and simply assembled prior to baking or cooking in the crock pot.

Serve with cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and veggies and you've got one heck of a delicious turkey dinner any day of the week and an easy flavour infused meal for a fuss free Thanksgiving Dinner!
