Traditional Crockpot Stuffing
Make this easy Traditional Crockpot Stuffing recipe in your slow cooker to help save time and work on Thanksgiving day.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours, 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 12


  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 (8 oz.) cans sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 12 cups day old bread cubes, dried overnight
  • 1 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1-1/2 tsp. dried sage leaves
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 - 2 cups chicken or turkey broth
  • 2 eggs, beaten


To dry bread, let it stand uncovered overnight on a wire rack, or bake in a 200 degree F oven for about 20-30 minutes, until firm. In a heavy skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add onion, celery, parsley, and mushrooms and cook and stir for 2-3 minutes.

Meanwhile, place bread cubes in a large bowl. Pour this mixture over bread cubes, then add all seasonings and toss well. Add eggs and mix well. Pour in enough broth to moisten, about 1/3 cup at a time, tossing with fork. Don't make the dressing too wet! Spoon lightly into 5-6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, sprinkling with some more chicken stock once or twice during the cooking time.

Note: Yes, if your stuffing burned, your crockpot cooks hot. Please read Hotter Cooking Crockpots Update and adjust the timing on all of your slow cooker recipes.

Perfect stuffing, Guest Gillian C.

I was skeptical as to how stuffing would come out in a slow cooker, but because I already have the mashed potatoes and gravy going on the stove at the last minute, I figured I'd see how this worked, so that I could do all of the prep earlier in the day and have less to deal with at the last minute. I used two baguettes that I cubed and left out overnight to dry, and I left out the sage & poultry seasoning but added about a tsp of dried rosemary. The stuffing seemed done within 6 hours on low, and the house smelled wonderful all day while it cooked. The texture was perfect and the flavor was amazing. I will definitely make this again. I might start it a little later, because it really didn't seem to need a full 8 hours.
