Comments

Stuffing made in the slow cooker is moist and full of flavor. It also frees your oven space up for other dishes during the holiday. Adding corn, bacon and pecans to a traditional stuffing adds flavor as well as texture. You could substitute sausage for the bacon. This recipe is for the slow cooker, if cooking in a conventional oven, you will need to add more broth.
