"Very good crock-pot recipe, which means it's very convenient. Nice one, too, to take to potlucks as a change from all the tomato-based pasta stuff people bring. Good down-home comfort food."

"Changed the recipe by using my cornbread-based stuffing and cooking in crockpot. Love fixing it this way. Never again will the holiday oven be quite so crowded when the stuffing can be put into crockpot and forgotten, freeing up precious oven space."
