Slow Cooker Homemade Stuffing Recipe

How to make classic, homemade stuffing in the slow cooker. A great recipe and an easy way to transport this classic Thanksgiving side dish.


  • 12 cups of soft bread cubes approximately 18 slices of standard bread
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped celery about 3 large stalks
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme optional
  • Additional chicken or vegetable stock


  • The night before you cook your stuffing, tear the bread into small cubed pieces. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl and cover with a towel. Let it sit overnight, stirring 1-2 times. If you forget to do it the night before, place your bread cubes on a rimmed baking sheet in an oven set at 200 degrees. Keep the bread pieces in the oven until they begin to dry out, but do not toast.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter.
  • Add the celery and onion and sauté until tender.
  • Add salt, pepper, and sage and cook an additional 3 minutes.
  • Add 1/3 of the mixture to the bread cubes. Toss lightly to coat. Repeat until butter mixture is gone. Add additional stock as needed to make sure the bread cubes are lightly damp.
  • Place in the slow cooker and cook on low for approximately 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Add additional stock or seasoning as needed.
