Crockpot Stuffing Recipe from the Hillbilly Housewife site

My biggest challenge on Thanksgiving has always been getting my stuffing or dressing done before the turkey got cold. I donít like to cook it in the bird, but cooking it in the oven takes quite some time and since I have only one, itís always been a bit tough to time things right. For the past few years, Iíve been making it in the crockpot instead. Hereís the recipe.
  • 1 cup butter or margarine(I'm going to substitute applesauce instead)
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup parsley sprigs
  • 12 cups bread cubes, slightly dry(Use Whole Wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 eggs, well beaten(Egg Beaters)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sage
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon marjoram
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth or turkey broth
Melt butter in a skillet and saute onion and celery until they are tender.(I'm going to brown it in Pam butter spray.) The onion will start to turn translucent. Add the parsley and pour the mixture over the bread cubes. I put the bread cubes in a large mixing bowl first. Add the seasonings and stirr well. Add the broth and eggs and mix until everything is well combined. Scoop it into the crockpot and cook on high for 50 minutes, then turn to low and cook 4 hours.
