Crockpot Thanksgiving Stuffing is the perfect recipe to make for saving time and leaving room in your oven. I am all about having all of my food cooking and almost done when company arrives. I want to be able to spend more time engaging with my family and friends, then fussing over food and recipes. Last year I had everything in my crockpots on Thanksgiving and it was such a relaxing day. Check out this post on how to do it —>How To Make Your Thanksgiving Meal In Your Slow Cookers
When making this slow cooker recipe for stuffing, be sure to grease your crockpot sides well. Otherwise you will have stuffing stuck to the sides and check on it often so it does’t burn. I’ll be making Crockpot Thanksgiving Stuffing recipe this holiday, be sure you do too!
- 6-8 cups dried bread cubes
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 3 stalks celery, finely chopped

- 1 teaspoon dried sage, or 3-4 fresh leaves finely minced
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme, or the leaves from 3 fresh thyme sprigs
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh or dried rosemary leaves
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1½ to 2½ cups chicken or turkey stock
- Place dry bread cubes in a large bowl and set aside.
- Liberally butter the inside of your slow cooker insert and keep at the ready.
- Melt butter over medium heat until melted and the foaming has subsided, then add the celery and onion and sauté until translucent.
- Add the herbs and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
- Add the sauteed celery, onions, and herbs to the bread cubes, along with the salt, pepper, and 1½ cups of the chicken stock.
- Toss well, adding more stock if the cubes are still very dry, then pour into the prepared slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 4-5 hours.
