I have made this for the past 4 years and it turns out great every time. I originally got this recipe from a Southern Living cookbook. I no longer have to worry about whether my dressing will turn out right. I have given this recipe to many people. Frees up that much needed extra space in your oven, which is a huge deal at Thanksgiving or Christmas.
I've made this recipe the past 3-4 years, and everyone raves about it and requests that I bring it each time. I use the Pepperidge Farms cornbread stuffing (2 bags) instead of making my own cornbread (along with the 1 pkg PF herb mix), and it turns out great. Highly recommend for the ease and the raves you will get!
Very good, very easy. A no-brainer. The only thing I'd like to try differently is to add the Pepperridge Farms cornbread stuffing mix to the PPF herbed stuffing mix instead of making cornbread separately. My cornbread was too sweet, but it was still delish! Update.... P. S. I used the PF cornbread stuffing mix (2014) instead of homemade and it was perfect.
If it came out gummy it's undercooked.
Loved this! Second year making it at Thanksgiving, and love that it cooks in crock pot, since I don't have a double oven. Easy to make and dependable. Used 5 qt crock pot. Very moist and flavorful. I was afraid with the boxed dressing, it wouldn't taste homemade, but it does.
We made this for Thanksgiving this year. It was very good and very similar to the dressing my mother always made. It was also very handy to have the oven free to bake other items. We will be making it again and again!
I have made this dressing for the last 3-4 Thanksgivings and my family loves it. It is similiar to the dressing that my great grandmother and grandmother used to make and we were no longer able to replicate. It's so easy and comes out moist and delicious every time. Saving on oven space is a real bonus.
This is a great way to free up oven space. I added the sausge and apples and that took it up a notch. I was afraid it would be mushy not baking in the oven but it had a great consistancy as if it had come out of the oevn.
Loved this! It was a real hit with all ages at Thanksgiving!
This was a very convenient way to make a tasty stuffing at Thanksgiving. Did not have to sacrifice oven or stove top space, as I made the cornbread the day before.
I stuffed the bird with 1/3 of the dressing and placed the other 2/3 of the dressing in the crock pot. Very good. I think the bird dressing was drier than the crock pot, which surprised me. I think I would add the mix-ins suggested in the recipe next time. Very nice.
I made this for our Thanksgiving potluck at work. Having the dressing in the slow-cooker was great! Food was kept warm the entire time. I did make some changes as per my own recipe--more cornbread, less stuffing mix and only two eggs.
Fantastic! I did a "trial run" and halved the recipe and it was wonderful and moist. My sister-in-law tried it and loved it also. Said she didn't think she would make it the old way ever again!
Not sure what went wrong, but my batch came out very gummy. I don't eat cornbread dressing myself, so I have nothing to compare it with. Seemed easy enough, let the crockpot do the work. Will try a baked stuffing this year.
Awesome recipe. The dressing was moist and could not be easier to make.
