Slow Cooker Sausage Stuffing
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon butter (this is for greasing the slow cooker)
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 2 stalked celery, cut into ⅓ inch pieces
  • 1½ teaspoon finely minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pound sausage, casings removed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt & Pepper
  1. First, you must prepare your bread the night before you would like to cook this dish. Cut your french bread into one-inch cubes. Place on a cookie sheet and leave sitting in your overnight. This is to let the bread stale. If you do not have time to stale the bread, you can turn your oven on low to dry out the bread.
  2. Taking the extra tablespoon of butter, grease the bottom and sides of your slow cooker.
  3. Add the bread, additional butter, onion, celery, thyme, rosemary, and garlic into the slow cooker.
  4. Toss, then add salt and pepper (about a teaspoon each). Pour the chicken broth over the top. Toss once again.
  5. Cover the bread mixture with pieces of sausages. The sausage should cover most of the stuffing.
  6. Cover and cook on low until the sausage if cooked through, about 4 hours.
  7. Remove lid and gently sire the sausage into the stuffing. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Transfer stuffing to a serving dish and garnish with chopped parsley. Enjoy!
