These were great - even better than I expected! Cooking in the crock pot all day filled the house with a wonderful smell. My roommate raved and raved about these, and happily ate leftovers. Either I used more stuffing ingredients than needed - or just had smaller onions - but only used half of the mixture. Will be picking up more onions to make again and use the rest up.

OH my, this were wonderful. I had leftover ham and I served it with roasted potatoes and baked pork chops, and a small tossed salad. Very easy to make. Thanks yooper, great recipe, its a keeper.
