  • Onion soup mix – Dry onion soup mix, like Lipton’s, can typically be found in the soup section of the grocery store.

Recipe tips

  • Make sure to pat the tenderloins dry before placing in the slow cooker.
  • Use a meat thermometer to make sure the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F before serving.

How to store leftovers

Store: Package leftover turkey and gravy in an airtight container after it has cooled to room temperature. I like to spoon out the gravy into a separate container than the turkey to make it easier to reheat. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Reheat: Reheat the gravy in the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove. You can reheat the turkey back in the crockpot or in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes or until heated through.

What to serve with turkey tenderloins in crockpot

This turkey with onion soup gravy goes well served over mashed potatoes, rice, even pasta. Some of our other favorite side dishes to serve are green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, cranberry jello salad, and more.
