Why worry about cooking a large turkey when you can cook a small one in a slow cooker while you sip wine!
In a slow cooker, place a small turkey on the bottom of the appliance's surface. Next, sprinkle black pepper and sea salt on top of the turkey and then add bacon crumbles, onions, and bell peppers. Lastly, fill the appliance with Italian dressing and cold water – do not overfill. Set your slow cooker's temperature control to “Low” and let the turkey cook for 6 hours or until the turkey's bones are easily removed.
Cooking Tip: Prepare this slower cooker turkey early in the day for serving later in the day.
