If you're hosting a big Thanksgiving dinner this year, add this simple slow-cooked stuffing to your menu to ease entertaining. The recipe comes in handy when you run out of oven space at large family gatherings. I use it often. —Mrs. Donald Seiler, Macon, Mississippi

"I couldn't find the bags of cubed white and wheat bread in the store so I used Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned stuffing. Because this was already seasoned, I didn't add poultry seasoning, salt, pepper or sage. I also added more than one can of broth. I cooked on low in the crock pot for about 2 1/2 hours and then moved the setting to warm for another hour or two. The one thing I forgot to do was use the cooking spray, so cleanup was a bit of a challenge. Over all, the stuffing was very good and was moist. Would definitely make again!"

"I have made a similar recipe for years, but with one added ingredient. I buy turkey thighs, a package of maybe 2, and place them over the top of the dressing while it cooks. The thighs are done at the end of the cooking time, and the dressing tastes like it just came out of the bird. You could remove the thighs and pop the lift-out dish and brown in oven at the end, if you so desired."

"This a little dry after mixing so I added more chicken broth. I increased the amount of sage to my personal taste. My family loved it."

"Recipe is a great base, I like the amped up sage flavor. I also wanted to stuff a small turkey. Cooked sausage & veggies together with butter. Dried cubed leftover garlic knots in the oven till crisp, made 8 cups. Used Arnold seasoned cubed stuffing mix for the rest. Added more pepper & left out the egg. I stuffed my bird at that point. I added more cubed stuffing & the egg to what was left along with a bit more poultry seasoning. I placed a paper towel under the cover of the crock. It catches the steam so the stuffing doesn't get mushy. Been eating it almost daily since Thanksgiving, it's the best stuffing I've made."

"Hello anyone know if I can by just use regular pre seasoned cubed stuffing? Will it be too gummy?"

"I needed A way to cook dressing without tying up the oven and tried this. It turned out great. I did forget to cook the celery and onions before mixing everything and putting into the crockpot and it turned out fine. I used the dried wheat & white bread cubes that come in the bag also. Used 1/2 tsp of sage and everything else as stated. It was very good."

"Very good. I tripled the recipe to feed over 30 people. Like the idea that it frees up your oven for other food. I would dry the bread cubes in a low oven or leave them sit out over night on a sheet pan the next time I make this. Also, as a previous comment stated, would omit the sage, since the poultry seasoning has plenty of sage in it. I did not use all the sage that the recipe called for, but I feel that there was still little too much in the stuffing."
