I shared on the "what's on your menu" post that I am roasting a turkey for dinner tonight. I am thinking about trying the recipe below on Tuesday to use up some of the leftover turkey. Thoughts about cooking it all day in the crock pot instead of the 4 hours the recipe says. If I cook on low instead of high, do you think that 9 hours would be too long? Should I just add extra liquid? Thoughts please.

Hi Lindsay,does your slow cooker have a warm button that aotumaticaly goes on when the time that you set is up?If so you shouldn't have any problem.I'm sure someone with more thoughts will help you better.Was it your daughter that has to get dental work done?If so how is she?

Hi Lindsay! yes, for sure I would slow cook on low and probably add extra least a cup and a cup and a quarter/half probably wouldn't be too much. You can always add some boiling broth when you get home, just before you do the dumplings if it's too thick. Sounds good!

This is already cooked turkey, canned soup and canned broth and canned biscuits. This is a thirty minute (TOPS) recipe when you make it stove top. Why make it take all day?

I agree with mimosaANP. If you have an hour to spare you could make this better by boiling the turkey carcass instead of using canned broth. You could add in the veggies (carrots, celery, etc...) for the last 20 minutes of the boil and then mix in the canned soups and maybe a teaspoon or two of garlic pepper. You don't need to roll out the biscuits (yes, I've made cheater dumplings like this before!) but only cut each "Grand" size biscuit into six equal pieces and roll them once in your hands. Drop them into a boiling pot with the cooked turkey and then turn down to low and cover for another 20 min. If you don't have the time for all of this I would still recommend that you reserve the cooked turkey meat till the end of your slow cooker method.

Thanks everyone. Manella, Yes, she had her surgery on Thursday. She did fantastic! She was very scared, but the whole thing only took about 15 minutes. Nitrous Oxide was lovely. :)
