"How can you make this receipe if you don't have a "slow cooker"? Sounds delicious but I don't want to have to go out and buy a slow cooker I can't rate it yet as I haven't made it yet. Answer appreciated. Thank You"

"I make this stuffing several times throughout the year not just for holidays. My family loves it. I never tried it with chestnut but I have to toast extra pecans because my kids tend to grab them as they are walking by. Maybe cornbread stuffing is only sold in the north east since people never heard of it. Even Stove Top sells a corn bread version. Look in that section. Thank you for sharing this recipe."

"Good stuffing - didn't use so many mushrooms for we don't care for them too much. FYI Pepperidge Farms makes a cornbread stuffing in bags just like the other flavors so perhaps that is what they are referring to in this recipe. Would be nice if the poster, Bette Votral, would comment on that."
