How to Make Crockpot Cornbread Dressing (stuffing)
I like to keep recipes for the crockpot simple. This one requires sautéing your celery, onion, and parsley first. Don't skip this. It does make a difference.
Toss the veggies with the bread cubes in a large bowl and season with the spices.
Pour in just enough broth to moisten and mix in egg. Transfer the mix to your crockpot and cover. Cook on low for 4 hours and serve with your holiday meal, or weeknight dinner.
