Slow Cooker Turkey Dip Sandwiches

Slow Cooker Turkey Dip Sandwiches – A lighter take on the French Dip sandwich. Turkey Dip sandwiches with onions and melted cheese on a toasted bun.

We had such a great weekend. We made a quick trip to Omaha to visit my friend Alison of thishomemadelife.com. It was a wonderful visit, filled with new friends, wonderful food, and s’mores. People rarely cook for me, and nothing makes happier than going to someones house for dinner. So to have Alison cook dinner for me was a huge treat. Her home is so warm and inviting. Being a food blogger has introduced me to some of the most incredible people. If I had never started Baked Bree, I would have missed out on so many wonderful experiences, not to mention friends.

The last few weeks have been really crazy around here. I really was naive to think that when the kids went back to school that I would have so much time during the day. In some ways, I do, but it amazes me how quickly 3:20 rolls around and the big kids come home. I have spent a lot less time online, and more time involved with teaching a class, volunteering in the kid’s classrooms, and trying to be more present when everyone is home.

I recently did some work for tablespoon.com and fell in love with my slow cooker all over again. I love to start dinner in the morning by throwing some things into my slow cooker and letting it slow cook all day. Days when I do not have a plan in place, or something ready to go, they just do not run as smoothly. Recipes like this turkey dip sandwich save my life during busy weeks. It is easy, delicious, and everyone in my family looks forward to it.

    YUM! I love my slow cooker, I rarely use it, but you have inspired me. This is the perfect time of year to break that puppy out and make something savory and delicious!

    1. bakedbree

      I have fallen in love with mine all over again. I use it at least once a week.

  2. Alyssa

    SO glad you got to enjoy Alison’s home … and her cooking! She’s a rare find — a true treasure! Can’t wait to try this recipe, Bree! YUM!

    1. bakedbree

      She is wonderful, I am lucky to call her my friend.

  3. Rebecca Brigham

    This looks so yummy! I will definitely try this one out. I think I may try it with a little cranberry sauce on it. What do you think?

    1. bakedbree

      I think that sounds like a very good idea. 🙂

  4. Natalie

    Fresh turkey sandwiches! YUM.

    1. bakedbree

      so yum.

  5. Natalie

    This looks so great. I am not sure if it’s the NJ connection or what but all the food you post just speaks to me, so thank you, I made the slow roasted balsamic pork today and it was delicious. Thanks for taking the time to post these great recipes

  6. Tarah

    This looks wonderful, I do have a question though, the turkey breast, did it come tied like that? I very rarely (ok really only at Thanksgiving) buy turkey so I’m clueless. Does it need to be tied like that for this to work?

    1. bakedbree

      Yes, it did. But you can use one that is not tied in any way also.

  7. Dee M.

    OMG I want one of these right now! I’m drooling. hehee! I’ll also take one of those cupcakes from your header. Is there anything you make that doesn’t look SO good? hehee!

    1. bakedbree

      you are sweet, thanks Dee!

  8. Erin Ledford

    I look forward to trying this recipe!!

    1. bakedbree

      you will love this. So easy and the boys will eat it.

  9. Cora White

    I feel like i refound my slow cooker at the end of the summer as well. With my schedule I need to use it more. This is so going in my rotation. Somehow I want to use this and serve it over a shredded and wilted cabbage dish or something like that. The kids and husband will be all over the sandwiches.

    1. bakedbree

      I have fallen in love all over again. Sounds like a great way to serve it.

  10. Carrie Grasty

    These were AMAZING!!!! Thank you so much for such a great recipe!!!

    1. bakedbree

      I am so glad that you liked them so much.

  11. Kathy @ The Sugar Queen

    I’m new to your blog, and it looks great!

    Have you ever made this using a frozen turkey breast (such as Jenni-O boneless turkey breast that comes in a cooking bag)? Should the turkey be frozen or fresh? Would you know how long to cook it in the crock pot if using frozen?

    1. bakedbree

      I prefer fresh, but if you use a frozen breast, make sure that it is thawed first.

      1. Kathy @ The Sugar Queen

        Thanks!

        1. bakedbree

          you’re welcome.

  12. diana

    Bree, these were soooo good. I devoured my sandwich and so did Jude and the kids. Thank you!

    1. bakedbree

      you are welcome, so glad that you guys liked them.

  13. Dee

    Yum! I saw this recipe on the cooking channel, Kelsey’s I believe. It is a delicious recipe, though I must say I’m a little surprised that you didn’t refer to her as where the recipe came from…

    1. bakedbree

      I did forget to link back, and I should have. I did see her make it, but made some changes to the recipe, but should have mentioned that I saw something similar on her cooking show. Thank you for bringing to my attention.

  14. Fer

    Hi bree! I cooked the turkey in my slow cooker in low for 8 hrs and the onions stick To the bottom…the turkey Was soft in the center but dry in the outside. Do you think MY error Was put it in low for that amount of time?

    1. bakedbree

      Probably, it also might have to do with the size of your turkey.

  15. Mary

    Made this for dinner tonight. I modified it based on what was in my kitchen (no rosemary, sorry!)

    But my ever-picky six-year-old LOVED it. She asked for another and she loved being able to dip it. Will definitely be making it again!

    1. bakedbree

      Great!!

  16. linda layman

    Can you do this in a regular oven with the recipe doubled? How long would it take to cook do you think?

    1. bakedbree

      Yes, and I am not sure. I don’t cook it in the oven. I’d say an hour at least.

  17. JKS

    Everyone at our house loves this recipe!! We make it a lot throughout the Fall and Winter months. We all love the au jus, so I always double the recipe for the sauce, without doubling the meat. This recipe is a keeper!

    1. bakedbree

      I am so glad that you like it so much. 🙂
