Crockpot stuffing??

Okay, by some mischance, I am now having Thanksgiving dinner here at my (messy) house. Just a small dinner but a dinner nonetheless. I will definitely be delegating some dishes out (I have NOTHING so far, and I am working all week, so basically, this leaves me with a few evenings and Thursday morning).

Anyway, I digress. A friend told me about a recipe for stuffing/dressing made in the crockpot that sounded really good. She is going to try to find it for me, but in the meantime, I thought I would tap the wealth of knowledge that is PT. Has anyone made dressing like this before? It sounds easy and doable and I would like to try it.

Also, this will make me look like a dunce, but can you buy dried bread cubes to make the dressing with? I am not adverse to making homemade dressing, but I am not into buying a few loaves of bread, having them go stale, and then making it. THere must be an easier way!

First of all, congrats on having Thanksgiving dinner at your house! Lucky you!!!

While I don't know about the crockpot recipe, I do know brownberry makes cubed bread and it's available everywhere.My mom uses that and I love her stuffing! Maybe there's a crockpot recipe on the back of the bag?

Good luck and I'm sure all will turn out well, after all you have a teenaged boy to help with all the cleaning and cooking!!!!

Go to Furr's Cafeteria (not sure if you have those there) or Denny's. Then your problem is solved.

Sorry, I'm not much help. I only know how to cook things with hamburger meat in them.

Here is the Dressing in a Crock Pot recipe that I use. I think that it is as good as one in the bird. This year I am substituting dry bread crumbs for the croutons and then adding my own sage, thyme, etc. My local grocery, in the bakery, has bags of dried, cubed bread made up just for that reason. Happy cooking!

12 - 13 cups seasoned croutons
1 cup margarine
2 cups chopped celery
2 cups chopped onion
3 1/2 - 4 1/2 cups chicken stock or
4 -5 chicken bouillon cubes with 4 cups water

Saute celery and onion in margarine until soft.
Mix with croutons.
Add chicken stock and mix lightly.
Add 2 well-beaten eggs and mix well.
Put lightly in crock pot (if too much, put in casserole and into oven)
Cook on high for 45 minutes or low for 4 hours.

My mom buys bags of dried bread cubes by Peppridge Farm that are really good and I think they are already seasoned too.

I'm just catching up with PT from the week-end. I love the idea of using the crock pot. There is never enough oven room, even though my DD has two ovens at her house. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.
