What You’ll Need:

Below is a quick breakdown of a few ingredients I used. For full recipe ingredient list and measurements see the recipe card below.

  • Unseasoned Cubed Stuffing or Homemade Breadcrumbs- If you can find it, I always reach for the Pepperidge Farm unseasoned stuffing cubes. The bag is large and they get the perfect texture. However, we have also made our own breadcrumbs by slicing loaves of bread and slow toasting them in the oven.
  • Onion- Pick up a yellow onion from the produce section. This combined with celery add to the classic flavor we know and love.
  • Celery- Celery is key to giving this stuffing a nice crunch and texture. 
  • Parsley, Sage, Thyme, Marjoram, Salt and Pepper- When combined, this flavor combination makes this recipe irresistible. 
  • Chicken Broth- I really love Better Than Bouillon (affiliate), but regular chicken broth will work just fine.

How to use a slow cooker to make stuffing:

  1. Place all of your ingredients in your slow cooker. Stir until combined.
  2. Place the lid on and cook on high for 3-4 hours.
  3. Check halfway through, stir, and add additional liquid as necessary.

Tips for this recipe:

  • Try using a slow cooker liner (affiliate) to help with clean up. 
  • Check on your stuffing stuffing periodically. Stir and add liquid as needed to avoid overcooking. 
  • We have found that a 6 qt. slow cooker (affiliate) works best for this recipe.
  • We love this with a helping of Turkey Gravy on top!

How to make bread cubes for stuffing:

Making your own bread cubes is simple. You need:

  • 1 loaf of French bread, artisan bread, or leftover bread of any kind
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Using a sharp bread knife, cut the bread into cubes. 
  2. Drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat each piece. 
  3. Spread onto a baking tray and season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Bake at 250 degrees for 1-2 hours, or until the bread is completely dried out.
