The BEST Slow Cooker Dressing

Homemade dressing is my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal. I could skip the turkey and just eat dressing and gravy and be happy. My Mom makes amazing dressing. Her recipe is made to cook with a whole turkey or bone-in turkey breast (https://www.plainchicken.com/moms-turkey-dressing/). This year, Chicken Legs and I are getting a boneless turkey breast from Honey Baked Ham, so I needed a dressing recipe that isn’t baked with a turkey. I adapted my Mom’s recipe to come up with this yummy Cornbread Dressing made in the slow cooker.

How to Make Cornbread Dressing in the Crockpot

This dressing is SO delicious! The base of this dressing is obviously cornbread. To save time, I make the cornbread the day before I made the dressing. It only takes a few minutes to mix everything together, and I let the slow cooker do its job. It takes about 4 hours for the dressing to cook. I love just being able to throw everything in the slow cooker and forget about it. SO easy! I can’t wait to make this again for our Thanksgiving feast!

To make the dressing, combine cooked and crumbled cornbread, stuffing mix, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, onion, celery, eggs, sage, salt, and pepper. Place the mixture in the slow cooker and top with some butter. Cover and cook.

  • I used two packages of Martha White Buttermilk Cornbread Mix for the cornbread in this recipe. You can substitute Jiffy Mix if you prefer.

  • Do NOT make the stuffing. You are only going to use the mix.
  • Can use any Cream of Soups in this recipe. I prefer Cream of Chicken Soup. Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Celery would work great too.
