    JenniferK2's Note:

    When I used to stuff the turkey with my dressing, there was never enough so I had to make some of it in a casserole dish too. But that batch never came out the same, so I decided to adapt my recipe slightly and make it all together in the crock pot. It came out great (lots of compliments) and I didn't have to bother with stuffing (and unstuffing) the bird. In fact, I got to sleep in just a little longer because I didn't have to make the stuffing until after the bird was already in the oven (bonus). You can also prepare it through step 3 in advance. I make this recipe to go along with a 20 lb turkey, so if I make it right after the bird goes in the oven the timing is about perfect.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Brown ground beef and drain grease.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in saucepan and cook celery and onion until tender.
    3. 3
      Combine stuffing cubes, ground beef and celery onion mixture in extra large bowl or roasting pan (to allow room for mixing).
    4. 4
      Add chicken broth and mix well. Note: the amount of broth you use may vary. I like my stuffing pretty moist and the amount needed can vary depending on how dry the bread cubes are. I generally use about 5 cups, but adjust this to your liking. It will not dry out in the crock pot like it does in the oven, so make about as moist as you want it to be when it is done, then add about 1/4 cup more. You can always add a litte water later if it looks too dry, but it will be a bigger ordeal if it is too soupy for you (requires spreading on pan and baking in the oven for awile).
    5. 5
      Place stuffing in crock pot and place turkey neck and giblets on top to help flavor the stuffing.
    6. 6
      Cook on medium-low for about 4 hours.
    7. 7
      Remove turkey neck and giblets before serving (I also give it a good stirring at this point).

      Very good and easy. This makes *a lot* of stuffing. Next time I will use sausage as the ground chuck flavor gets a bit lost. A terrific way to free up your oven.

      Awesome! I made this for Thanksgiving. and everyone got seconds (or thirds!) I did use ground sage sausage instead of the ground chuck. I also took out the neck and giblets one hour before because they still seemed raw and bloody (I take no chance.) I used all 5 cups of broth, and it turned out perfect - not soggy. Turning it on hiigh for the last hour crisped the top nicely. Thanks so much for the recipe! Never will I make stuffing in the oven ever again!

      I used Bob Evan's sage sausage rather than ground chuck. It worked out GREAT in the crock pot. Brought it to work for a Thanksgiving lunch and it was the first thing to go. Everyone loved it. This is pretty much the recipe I make on a regular basis but I never put it in the crock pot. Great idea and recipe. Thanks!
