We love having burgers in the summer, but sometimes there just isn’t time to grill up our favorite meal.

We decided to try our favorite turkey burgers in the slow cooker, and the result was amazing. These awesome summer sandwiches may just be our new favorite go to meal.

tips on how to make slow cooker turkey burger joes

  • This is a fairly easy recipe. It doesn’t require much time or attention and can be thrown together in minutes.The only thing I would really recommend, is making an extra batch for later next week. This recipe is so easy to double, because you don’t finish up, all the ingredients.The meat also freezes very well, so I like to make a little extra then we put it on wraps, or buns the next week.

    If you do plan to freeze this, I recommend placing it in foil, and applying two more layers to it, or putting it in an airtight container.

    When you are ready to serve, remove from the freezer the night before and let it thaw out in the fridge, or place it in a pan over the stove, to heat up.

  • I also recommend, if you will be gone longer throughout the day, to cook your meat on low for 4 hours, instead of high for 2.If you are home, throughout the day, we also recommend stirring and combining ingredients throughout the day, to avoid the meat burning, at the bottom.
  • If you love a quick cleanup, you may also consider using a slow cooker liner, or spraying your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

velveeta cheese substitute

Not a Velveeta fan? Don’t stress, this is an easy fix. I have never really loved Velveeta. I like it on my grilled cheese and this recipe, but that’s about it.

You can easily replace Velveeta with two cups of sharp cheddar cheese and one half cup of milk, preferably whole or 2% milk.

Melt it all together in a sauce pan, stirring continually, and add it to the recipe, when called for.

I used a whisk to stir it, but you could also use a wooden spoon to do the stirring.

what toppings could I put on my slow cooker turkey burger joes?

I love toppings. I think they make or break a dish. Here are a few of my favorites to put on my Slow Cooker Turkey Burger Joes:

-banana peppers
-pepper jack cheese
-potato chips
