Already Thinking Thanksgiving! A Must-Have Recipe!


Lyn Cote here! I'm already thinking Thanksgiving. And I wanted to share a must-have recipe if you're like me and have a husband who LOVES stuffing! I do stuff the bird but then I make a crockpot full of stuffing so I have some for leftovers. Also I only have one oven and usually the turkey takes up all the room in my oven.
So here's the recipe:

Crockpot Stuffing
1/3 c butter or margarine
1 c chopped onion
1 c chopped celery
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sage
1/4 tsp thyme
6 1/2 c dry bread cubes
1 can cream of chicken soup with enough water to equal 2 cups liquid OR 2 cups of chicken or turkey broth
1 egg, well beaten
Saute onions and celery in butter around 7 minutes. (Personally I don't. I like my veggies al dente)
Combine all ingredients. Add egg last. Pour mixture into crockpot, cover, cook on high for 45 minutes and then low for 5-8 hours. Adjust liquid in accordance with dryness of bread cubes.
For large recipe, 13-14 cups, double all ingredients except soup or broth.

Hope this helps! How do you make stuffing or dressing? Anybody like cornbread or with raisins or craisins?

  1. I think I'll try it. You almost lost me with the saute, but then you said optional.

  2. MMM, sounds good, Lyn. I'm a southern cornbread 'dressing' girl myself--no regular bread allowed-- but I've never met a stuffing OR a dressing I didn't like!

    Oooh, I love this time of year when people share favorite, tried and true, recipes. Yummy!

  3. I've never thought to put stuffing in a crock pot. What a great idea! Saves room in the oven, that's for sure!

  4. The financial aspect in being a single mother is enormous and the demand and pressure of that unexplainable urge to give everything that you can just for your kid to have a good future.

    Returning to college can be a well recognized and controversial topic, the president of the United States would like single moms to go back to college. The belief is that when single mothers return to school they’ll get the training they have to have to come back to the employed pool. More mums that enter in the workforce raises spending and from this investing of dollars the economic system will increase.
