4
slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1
cup chopped red and green bell peppers
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1/2
cup frozen whole kernel corn
4
cups corn bread stuffing mix
1
teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
1/2
teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1 1/2
cups water
3- to 4-pound frozen boneless whole turkey breast, thawed
  1. Cook bacon in 12-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown. Stir in bell peppers, onion and corn. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender. Stir in stuffing mix, marjoram, seasoned salt, pepper and water until moistened.
  2. Leave netting on turkey breast. Cut turkey breast (and netting) lengthwise in half from side without cutting completely through other side. Spoon and spread about 1 cup stuffing mixture onto turkey; fold turkey over filling. Tie 3 or 4 times with string (over netting) to hold together. Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place stuffed turkey breast in cooker. Spoon remaining stuffing mixture around turkey.
  3. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until juice of turkey is no longer pink when center is cut. Remove turkey breast from cooker to serving platter; cover with foil. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before slicing. Remove string and netting before serving.

Betty's Success Tip
Although you normally remove the netting on a turkey before cooking, in this case leaving it on makes sense because it helps hold the turkey and stuffing together as they cook. Of course, you'll want to remove the netting before serving!
Serving Suggestion
Cooking your Thanksgiving turkey in a slow cooker allows you to spend more time with family and friends instead of being stuck in the kitchen for most of the day. For a traditional holiday meal, serve with cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes.
