Thanksgiving Series No.: 4-Crockpot Dressing

Slow Cooker Dressing Recipe

Oven space is always limited on Thanksgiving so using the crockpot to make your dressing will free up some much needed space. This is also an easy way to make 'extra' stuffing for a large crowd. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I am going to make it for this year's Thanksgiving.

1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups chopped onions
2 cups chopped celery
1/4 cup parsley sprigs
1 (12 ounce) package mushrooms, sliced
12 - 13 cups slightly dry bread cubes
1 teaspoon ground poultry seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons sage
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon marjoram
3 1/2 - 4 1/2 cups chicken broth or turkey broth
2 eggs, well beaten

Melt butter or margarine in a skillet. Saute onion, celery, mushroom and parsley.
Pour sauteed vegetables over bread cubes in a very large mixing bowl.
Add all seasonings and toss together. Pour in enough broth to moisten. Add beaten eggs, and mix together well.
Pack stuffing lightly into slow cooker, and cover.
Set to High for 45 minutes; then reduce to Low to cook for 4 to 8 hours.
