This recipe for Crock Pot Stuffing is the perfect side dish for any holiday meal...especially Thanksgiving. It's also one of my favorite easy recipes for Thanksgiving that are perfect to serve all year long. Let's take a look at this easy recipe that uses a simple bag stuffing mix.
One of the advantages of making this crock pot stuffing is it can be made the day before you want to serve it...Thanksgiving! It also helps free up space in the oven and gives the turkey more room to cook.
You could also have the stuffing cook in the crock pot as the turkey cooks in the oven. Once the stuffing is baked, you can turn the slow cooker to the keep warm setting until the rest of the meal is ready.
Serve the stuffing straight from the crock pot! No need to use another serving bowl. This is another one of our Family Favorite Crock Pot Recipes that's perfect to make all year long.

Tried any of my recipes? Let me know in the comments!
- Cranberries - add dried cranberries when the stuffing is completely cooked. The heat of the recipe will warm and plump up the dried cranberries.
- Apples - add chopped Granny Smith apples to the mixture about an hour before it's done.
- Italian Sausage - add cooked Italian sausage to the stuffing mixture before you add everything to the crock pot.
- Corn Bread Stuffing Mix - swap out the traditional bread stuffing for corn bread.
Tips for using a Slow Cooker
Here are a few tips to make sure your any recipe comes out perfect:
- Don't overfill the crock pot.
- Keep the lid on. Opening the slow cooker allows the heat and moisture to escape and can slow down the cooking process.
- An obvious tip, but this has happened to me...make sure the crock pot is plugged in.
