This Slow Cooker Stuffing is a Delicious Addition to Any Holiday Dinner!
Have you ever made a slow cooker dressing? Pardon me. I was raised in the South. Have you ever made a slow cooker STUFFING? I have...several times. We've had everything from cornbread stuffing from scratch to stove-top only turned crockpot. We've had several in between too. Some have been epic fails, some have been pretty successful. If you're looking for a one-pot stuffing meal, here's a chicken & stuffing casserole. It was a success 🙂
Everyone likes this dressing recipe when it's made in the crock pot. I think the main reason it's successful is that it stays super moist. As long as you keep your lid on the moisture can't escape and it keeps it moist, creamy, and delicious. I suppose some folks might like it drier, but no one around here does.
This recipe cooks for about 4 to 5 hours. If you need it to cook longer make sure and add a bit more liquid. Like about a 1/4 cup extra per hour. Maybe upwards of 1/3 cup per hour, depending on how hot your crockpot cooks.
One Last Note...
This recipe was served up with a full crockpot spread! It included:
- Slow Cooker Spiral Ham
- Crockpot Bacon Wrapped Turkey Breast
- Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese
- Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole
- Slow Cooker Corn Casserole
- 5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes

Slow Cooker Dressing Step-by-Step:
Gather your ingredients...
- King's Hawaiian bread crumbs
- Turkey stuffing mix
- Onions, diced (optional)
- Celery, diced
- Chicken broth ~or~ 4 cups water + 2 heaping tablespoons chicken flavored Better Than Bouillon
Dice up the veggies you're using...
Onions are required to be optional in this house. My hubbie and I love them. But we've a few friends that can't have them...so optional. If you choose to go with the onions, a sweeter type like a Vidalia or sweet yellow works great with the sweetness of the Hawaiian bread.
Saute the celery and/or the onions in the butter 'til just slightly browned...
Spray or butter the insert...
Add the bread crumbs, stuffing mix and veggies.
Add the chicken stock and mix well...
Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours. If you would rather cook it overnight just add a little more broth or water so it doesn't dry out or burn around the edges.
Serve up this delicious side for an amazing holiday dinner 🙂
