This is an amazing and wonderful way to cook your bread dressing.
It's moist and so tasty - reminds me of my mama's dressing recipe.
It's a super way to free up your oven for rolls and side dishes!

CROCKPOT BREAD DRESSING
(for a crowd!)
1/2 c. butter
(margarine would work, but won't be as tasty)
1/2 c. diced celery
1/2 c. diced onion
12-13 cups dry bread crumbs
(I like to tear my bread slices into pieces, spread over a cookie sheet, then toast them in the oven a while on a low temp)
1-1/2 c. chicken (or turkey), optional
3 eggs, beaten
2 cans (10.75 ozs.each) cream of chicken soup
2 (15 ozs) chicken broth
(Save some to add if too dry after mixing everything)
1/2 tsp. each pepper and salt
about 1 tsp. sage OR poultry seasoning to taste
Spray a 4-6 qt. crockpot with cooking spray. In skillet, melt butter; saute celery and onions. Place bread crumbs in very large bowl; add sauteed veggies. In medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients, saving some broth to add if needed before placing in crockpot. (You want the dressing to be moist, but not soaked wet). Pour mixture into crockpot. Cover with lid. Cook on high 3 hours and 45 minutes or on low for 4-6 hours. Let stand a few minutes before serving. (Don't peek if you can help it=)
