Slow cooker cornbread dressing

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is rainy, dark and a bit dreary which I think is perfect weather for a holiday. I love the coziness it gives when you are all warm and cozy inside the house.

I am re-posting my Slow Cooker Cornbread Dressing recipe which I just got in the crock pot.

Slow Cooker Cornbread Dressing

6 cups prepared cornbread (Michael made me some cornbread the previous night. You can also use Jiffy mix cornbread but I suspect it would not be as tasty).
8 slices of day-old bread (I just used regular loaf bread)
4 eggs
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp of poultry seasoning or Sage (I used a combination of both)
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 10 1/2-oz. cans of cream of chicken soup
2 10 1/2-oz cans of chicken broth
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp. salt

Lay your bread out on the counter the night before you prepare the dressing so that it will dry. Crumble the breads in a large bowl.
Add all other ingredients except butter.
Stir the mixture with a large spoon and transfer to the crock pot that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Dot with butter. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours OR low for 4 hours.

  1. Another yummy recipe. I hope you and Michael are enjoying turkey day. I too don't mind the dark dreary outside world when the inside world is full of love and fun. Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you both! Thanks for the recipe. It sounds delicious.

  3. SMH, what is a good Southern boy like you doing putting that loaf bread in dressing? Just teasing of course, but oh my momma would have had a fit about that. Does your dressing get brown or do you stick it under the broiler for a couple of minutes?

    1. Haha! It browns on its own. I might try it with just cornbread the next time. Michael said his mother used biscuits in hers? This recipe has come the closest to what my mother made.

    2. No biscuits, please. Give it a try with just cornbread. You may need to add a little broth along as it cooks or at least that is what Momma did so of course that is what I do.
