Crockpot Stuffing for Everyone!

Ahhhh the infamous Crockpot Stuffing. I was SOOO happy when I found a version of this recipe a few years ago. Seriously. Color me happy. Stuffing is a basic staple of Thanksgiving dinners everywhere. and most definitely at my house. Not having stuffing would be like, not having dessert on a birthday. Just plain wrong!

Anyway, as any Thanksgiving cook knows, oven space is especially tight on Thanksgiving (unless you have two ovens – I haven’t had that luxury!). I don’t cook my stuffing in the turkey (the timing always throws me off), and have always done it in the oven. Finding this recipe was a serious God send. It’s easy, keeps my oven free, and is very tasty. It’s one of those recipes that you need to adjust for your altitude and climate (warmer/drier climates would use more broth, cold/wet climates would use less). If you have a newer crock-pot (I find they cook a bit faster), periodically check on your stuffing to make sure it’s not cooking faster then you want.

You can find this recipe (and many of my other favorite recipes) on my cooking blog at www.frommykitchentoyours.blogspot.com. A link right to this recipe is http://frommykitchentoyours.blogspot.com/2006/11/thanksgiving-2006-crockpot-stuffing.html.

I have a bunch of new recipes to add, and plan to do that this weekend! Wahoo!

Enjoy! I'd really love to know what you think of it!

Heather, I made your crockpot stuffing last year, and this year, and my friend Brent also made it this year for his big crowd. It smells so good cooking all day and frees up a lot of oven space! It's a tradition for us (and Brent) now, too.

Thanks!

Looks super yummy!! I love how you always give your tips too on how to make everthing turn out just right. A natural teach you are Miss Ales. Will have to try this recipe out myself next year. We have been making Rachael Ray's Stuffin' Muffins that last two years. They have apple in them and I add dried cranberries too. So yummy. ~Johanna
