Who doesn’t love stuffing? I mean, let’s face it… it never looks very appetizing compared to all the other colorful dishes on the Thanksgiving table but the taste is always amazing! This is one of my favorite dishes for Thanksgiving. Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s simple to make and cooks in your slow cooker so your oven is free for that turkey!
Slow Cooker Stuffing Recipe
- 1 cup chopped onion (I’m loving my Vidalia Chop Wizard to cut my chopping time!)
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1/4 cup butter
- 12 cups cubed sourdough bread (I like to cube mine a day or two in advance and let it get stale on cookie sheets in my oven)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth or vegetable broth
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Saute onion and celery in butter over medium heat until tender.
- In a large bowl, combine the bread cubes, salt, poultry seasoning, pepper and onion mixture.
- In a separate bowl, combine broth and eggs. Pour broth mixture over bread mixture and toss to evenly coat.
- Put stuffing into a slow cooker coated with cooking spray or coconut oil. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until a thermometer reads 160°. (I love my Hamilton beach slow cooker that comes with a temp probe)
I cannot tell you how much my Vidalia Chop Wizard and my Hamilton beach slow cooker come in handy not only during the holidays, but year round. If you can find these in time for your holiday dinner do yourself a favor and GET THEM!
