Crockpot Dressing

Crockpot Dressing: A soft, moist and savory side dish made with bread, buttery onion and celery, and savory seasonings. Simple ingredients, but BIG on flavor!



This Crockpot Dressing goes great with poultry or ham, and couldn't be easier to make. With just a few simple steps of prep, your dressing will cook low and slow in the crockpot, while you tend to other things. You'll be rewarded with a deliciously moist, but not soggy, crispy on the edges dressing that your family will love. 



SO WHAT EXACTLY IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRESSING AND STUFFING?

The way my mom explained it to me as a child, is that it's called stuffing when you "Stuff" it inside a turkey, and is called dressing when you cook it separately on it's own. 

Today is Multicooker Monday, a group run by Sue from Palatable Pastime. We meet once a month, to make sure we post recipes using some of our favorite small appliances, such as the Instant Pot, Crockpot, Sous Vide, and more. Make sure to check out what everyone else made, after the recipe below.


Crockpot Dressing

Ingredients

4 tablespoons vegan butter
3 medium celery ribs, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
10 cups dried bread cubes, unseasoned
3 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Directions

In a large skillet, heat vegan butter over medium heat till melted. Add celery and onion and saute until tender. (about 10 minutes)
Place bread cubes, celery mixture, and seasonings in a large bowl, toss to combine. Gradually stir in 3 cups of the broth, stirring gently till all bread cubes are moistened. 
Taste for seasoning, then transfer  mixture to a greased 5-quart crockpot. Cook covered on low, stirring halfway through cooking time, until heated through, 3-4 hours. Remove lid during the last 30 minutes of cooking time, so the top of the dressing can "crisp" a little, just like in the oven.


NOTES:

  • When adding the broth you want to add it slowly, to ensure that you don't add to much. You want just enough broth to moisten the bread cubes. You'll be tempted to add more, but don't. Remember, the crockpot itself will add some moisture too.
  • Leftover stuffing will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
  • This is a basic stuffing recipe. Feel free to add in more ingredients, like diced apples or cooked sausage if you'd like.


We get together every third Monday of the month to share our recipes. If you are a food blogger who would like to post with us, please request to join our Facebook group.

  1. I love making dressing in the crock pot! It frees up oven space for one. My favorite dressing is basic.
