How to make Stuffing in a Crockpot! This Slow Cooker Crock Pot Dressing / Stuffing Recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving! Do you call it stuffing or dressing? I have always called it stuffing, but recently I have been seeing it listed as a dressing for Thanksgiving.
Crockpot Stuffing Recipe
This recipe is so easy to make! The hardest part is cutting up all the bread and slicing the celery and onions. Outside of that, the crock pot does all the work.
When I was making this recipe for some reason I thought it would take a lot more bread than it really does take. I went out and bought 4 loaves of bread and started cutting up the bread.
After the first loaf, I realized that the crock pot was pretty well full.
We ended up with a lot of sandwiches for lunch after making this recipe. John was laughing and asked if I planned to feed an entire army with my 4 loaves of bread.
I don't know why but I really thought it would take a lot more bread than 1 loaf of bread. Oops.
I made this with all white bread since that is what was requested by John and our neighbor. I think when I make it again I will do a mix of a few different types of bread to add a bit of a different flavor to the stuffing.
We love making this Crockpot Dressing with a mix of white, sourdough, and wheat bread. The multiple flavors add a great mix of colors to the dressing but also flavors.

Crock Pot Dressing
Ingredients to make crock pot stuffing
- Dry bread cubes
- Chicken broth or vegetable broth
- Unsalted Butter
Optional - dried cranberries, fresh rosemary, fresh sage, parsley, poultry seasoning, mushrooms, sausage, thyme, or your favorite herbs.
Salt and pepper to taste
Bread Cubes - We use a mix of wheat, white, French bread, and sometimes sourdough bread depending on what we have. The best bread is what you have available.
Knife/Kitchen Scissors - To cut bread into pieces
Non-stick cooking spray
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
A mix of bread works great for this recipe. We have used sourdough and white bread and it tastes amazing.
If you have a large bowl, you can mix everything together before you pour it into the crockpot. Just wait to pour the butter until everything is in the slow cooker.

I normally don’t like stuffing but was looking for a recipe yo serve at Christmas. I couldn’t help but try it as it smelled so good and it’s delicious!!! I will definitely make again!!
Can you use the already seasoned stuffing cubes?
Are the bread cubes from fresh bread? Do you prefer any particular type of bread?
I was wondering if the stuffing was mushy at all? I like mine kind of browned on the top
how much does it make / how many servings?
Hi! What does "1/4 -1 cup butter, melted" in the recipe mean? I'm not clear on the amount of butter needed. Thank you!
I just updated the recipe. I somehow typed it in backwards. Thank you for letting me know.
wow that IS easy. I call it stuffing and it's my favorite thing ever. I think I almost eat the entire bowl on Thanksgiving!
