Turkey Stuffing in Roaster Oven?

ok, I always have a cooking delima on Thanksgiving because I do not have a double oven. I bought an 18" Roaster Oven in hopes that it might be of some assistance. Can, and if so how, would I cook my dressing in the Roaster Oven?

Think of it as a free-standing extra oven.

Do you have a crock pot/ The roaster oven may be too large for the amount of dressing you want to make. Has anyone used a crock pot for dressing?

From pictures of roaster ovens, it looks like it would be better to roast the turkey there, leaving your oven free for your side dishes.

Our friend always uses her electric roaster oven for the turkey. She has a large group every year. My only disappointment is that the skin does not get crispy using that method. Otherwise the turkey is delicious.

I always use my slow cooker for stuffing. My family likes the soft moist dressing from the bird, and of course, I now longer stuff the bird, soooooo,
Just cook it on low, and wrap the lid with a towel to keep the moisture from dripping down into the dish.

I use my roaster to cook the STUFFED turkey, and make the separate dressing in a casserole dish in my oven, along with the white and sweet potatoes and the pies.

BTW, I use two oven thermometers on the turkey; one in the thigh and one in the stuffing.
