Homemade Thanksgiving Stuffing

Thanksgiving dinner would not be complete without stuffing. Aside from the Thanksgiving Turkey or ham, the stuffing is one of my favorite dishes.

We grew up with Thanksgiving stuffing from a box, which is okay, but there is nothing like homemade stuffing. When I started hosting my own Thanksiving dinners I vowed never to serve stuffing from a box.

There are many ways to prepare Thanksgiving stuffing. I prefer to cook Thanksgiving stuffing in a crockpot. My oven and stove are typically cluttered with the turkey, ham, green bean casserole, and other Thanksgiving meal dishes that there really isn't any room to cook my Thanksgiving stuffing.

There are thousands of crockpot stuffing recipes out there. This hub is just one way to prepare Thanksgiving stuffing in a crockpot.

    I was skeptical at first, but we tried it and loved it. And it is so convenient to cook it this way then another dish in the oven or stove top.
