Crockpot Cornbread Dressing With Sausage and Cranberries

Diana Rattray
This dressing is quick to fix, moist, and easy to cook in the slow cooker. Put raisins or dried cranberries in this easy dressing for a burst of flavor. Nonstick baking spray with flour makes cleanup extra-easy.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces ground pork sausage
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 package (16 ounces) seasoned cornbread dressing crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage, optional
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins


Butter a slow cooker or spray with nonstick baking spray.

In a large skillet melt butter and add sausage, cooking and breaking up, until sausage is lightly browned. Add onion and celery and continue cooking until vegetables are tender. Add parsley poultry seasoning, and sage, if using.

In a large bowl, combine the sausage and vegetable mixture with the crumbs. Stir until blended; add chicken broth. Add salt and pepper to taste and blend well. Blend in the lightly beaten egg and stir in the cranberries or raisins. Spoon into the prepared slow cooker; do not pack. Cover and cook on HIGH for 45 minutes. Reduce heat to LOW and cook for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours longer.
Serves 8.

Good with modifications, Member gfnoma

I was reluctant to cook the stuffing outside the turkey for my first Thanksgiving meal fearing that it would be dry, but this turned out perfectly. I used my family's original recipe that was similar to this one, but I omitted the egg, sage, parsely, and raisins (to follow original recipe). I used homemade crumbled cornbread and added chopped walnuts. My husband was originally very disappointed that I wouldn't cook the stuffing inside the turkey, but he was pleased with the results. It was delicious, and tasted just like it always does.
