Use the Crockpot for Stuffing

Prepare your favorite stuffing and bake it in your crockpot while the turkey occupies the oven. You can prep this the day before and refrigerate, it is so much easier than stuffing it into the turkey, the turkey will cook faster, food poisoning risk is decreased and the stuffing doesn't absorb all the extra fat dripping from the turkey.

Great tip! I've been doing it for 15+ years. I read about doing this when I had received a sales " catalog" from Pfaltzgraff many, many years ago, that also included recipes. Of course, I adapted it to my own recipe which is now:


- 2 (two) loaves of potato bread, cubed
- 4 (four) cups of chopped onions. (Original called for 2 cups celery and 2 cups onions.)
- 2 (two) sticks butter
- 2 (two) eggs
- 1/2 (one half) cup liquid of choice (broth, water, milk, etc)
- Poultry seasoning

- melt butter in fry pan
- add onion (or onion & celery)
- cook until desired consistency
- I add water, cover & cook it way down
- remove lid when water is gone
- lightly brown onions
- remove pan from burner
- cool onions so you can touch it!
- scramble eggs & liquid together
- add to cooled onions
- mix together
- put bread in blue turkey roaster (or LARGE bowl or soup pot)
- sprinkle poultry seasoning over potato bread
- add onion mixture
- mix with gloved hands
- mixture will be very dense, not fluffy


- add to crockpot (**see note, below)
- cook on low for about 5 (five) hours

To serve: as mixture will be very dense, break up filling for serving. Filling will be very moist, too.

** NOTE, very important.
- I line my crockpot with a cooking bag.
- I add slices of bread on the bottom and sides of the bag.
- I mostly use heals.
- Then add the filling.
** I do this because my 6 quart crockpot has a tendency to burn and I don't want to waste any of this wonderful filling!

Thanks for sharing your recipe. I didn't do Thanksgiving at my house so I may need to do a turkey for Christmas. Maybe I will use your recipe to save room in the oven.
