Prep: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

4 1/2 cups cornbread crumbs
1 (16-ounce) package herb stuffing mix
2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
2 (14-ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter, cut up

Preparation

Stir together cornbread crumbs, stuffing mix, and next 8 ingredients in a large bowl.

Pour cornbread mixture into a lightly greased 5 1/2- or 6-quart slow cooker. Dot with butter. Cook, covered, on LOW 4 hours or until cooked through and set.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Stuffing mix. We also used 2 (7.5-ounce) packages Martha White Yellow Cornbread Mix prepared according to package directions in 8-inch square pans. The baked cornbread made 7 cups crumbs; just freeze the rest.
