Crockpot stuffing

Around here, it’s not the holidays without stuffing. We love it so much that we make crock pot stuffing year round! It’s the best comfort food and makes an easy and delicious side dish.

Plus, I love that the slow cooker does all the work and frees up the oven. This is so helpful if you are cooking a lot of other dishes. We all know that oven space is priceless!

You can also make this the night before to save even more time. It’s so easy!

Not to mention this crockpot stuffing is so flavorful and delicious. It really is amazing. The celery and onions give everything a ton of flavor.

It is such an easy side dish and we also love to make Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes Recipe. Yum!

Ingredients for easy crockpot stuffing:

  • 1 cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1 medium onions finely diced
  • 2 cups celery diced
  • 12 cups cubed and dried bread (I like to do half white and half Brown bread – like rye bread – or you can even do half dried cornbread)
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 2-3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 eggs, beaten

How to make stuffing:

First, heat butter over medium heat until melted. Next, add celery & onions and cook until softened (do not brown).

Cool completely.

Stir in poultry seasoning, black pepper and salt. Cool completely.

Stir in eggs.

Place bread cubes in a large bowl. Add cooled celery and onion mixture, parsley and fresh herbs if using.

Cover and refrigerate overnight if making ahead of time.

Grease a 5-6 qt slow cooker well. Place bread cuts in the slow cooker.

Pour the celery, butter mixture over the top. Add chicken broth a little bit at a time just to moisten and gently stir.

You may not need all of the broth.

Turn onto high for 30 minutes. Reduce temperature to low and cook an additional 3-4 hours or until hot and cooked through.

Top with more fresh parsley before serving.

Can you keep stuffing warm in a slow cooker?

Yes! Just turn the crock pot to warm and it will stay warm until you are ready to eat. This is so convenient!

Tips for the Best Crock Pot Stuffing:

Make sure to check on the stuffing regularly and stir if needed. If the stuffing begins to dry out, add more broth.

You can use drippings from your turkey if making on Thanksgiving for even more flavor.

We love this easy recipe! It is so simple to make.

Save even more time with these tips:

To save time, we also like to keep diced onion and bell pepper in the freezer so it is easy to add to any recipe we like. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen!

You need a good slow cooker to make this crockpot stuffing recipe:

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker for recipes that call for that.

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

  1. How far ahead of time can I buy dry bread? If we buy a few weeks ahead of time, I’m assuming the dry bread cubes will get even drier? Trying to plan ahead as the stores may not have it in stock if I wait.

    Also allowing to cool…does that mean after cooking the onions and celery you turn off the burner, cool completely, then turn on burner on again before adding the seasoning?
