I have a confession to make. My name is Julie and I like Stove Top Dressing. Like as in I’d be totally happy with that for Thanksgiving. I would have no qualms about eating it and I totally wouldn’t judge you if you made it for me. Anyone else with me? Like, I LOVE it in this delicious Cheesy Stuffing Chicken Casserole.
That was until I tasted my Aunt’s stuffing. I never told her how much I loved it and I secretly made a point of attending any Thanksgiving that she hosted just to get it. In my head it was going to be a super complicated recipe so I never really asked for it.
Plus, in my head stuffing had to be hard to make and since I was totally happy with Stove Top I just never made it. But really how hard is anything in a Crock Pot?

- 1 c. butter
- 2 c. chopped onion
- 2 c. celery
- 1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
- 2 8 oz cans mushrooms
- 1 tsp poultry seasoning
- 3 c. chicken broth
- 16 c. dry bread cubes
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp dry sage
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 eggs beaten

- Place bread crumbs in a large bowl. Pour butter mixture over bread cubes, add seasonings and toss together. Stir in broth. Add beaten eggs and mix together.
- Pack stuffing lightly into greased slow cooker. Cook on high for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes reduce to low for 4 hours.
- When adding your broth you want to add it slowly to ensure that you do not ad to much broth. You want just enough broth to moisten the bread cubes. Depending on the type of bread you use it can very up to a cup or more! Typically homemade bread cubes will take less broth than store bought bread cubes.
- If you add to much broth just throw in a few more dry bread cubes or store bought croutons. It will soak up the extra moisture making it the perfect consistency.
- This is a basic stuffing recipe, but feel free to add in more ingredients like dried cranberries, sausage and more!
- Counter - Cut bread into cubes and leave it out on the counter, uncovered, for at least 24 hours stirring occasionally to dry out the bread
- Oven - Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Lay the fresh bread cubes in a single layer on sheet pan. Place in oven and cook for 25 minutes, stirring half way through, or until dried. Make sure that the bread cubes do not toast or brown.
