  • 1 butternut squash cornbread chopped into 1-inch squares (I make the cornbread 2 days ahead of time and leave it on the counter to dry out) - or use about 4-5 cups of your favorite cornbread recipe or mix
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 2 apples chopped (I used 1 Gala and 1 Granny Smith)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into cubes


  1. Spray inside of crock-pot with cooking spray.
  2. Add in the cornbread cubes, sweet potatoes, apples, cranberries, onion, pecans and dried herbs.
  3. Pour in the broth, apple cider, and beaten eggs.
  4. Stir gently and place the cubes of butter on top of the stuffing.
  5. Cook in the crockpot on low heat for 2-3 hours (mine was done after about 2.5 hours or high heat for 1 - 1.5 hours. Stir with a fork when finished.

Recipe Notes

This stuffing has slightly crispy edges with a soft center which is how my family likes our stuffing. Add more liquid as needed if you prefer your stuffing softer.

Every slow cooker has slightly different cooking times. Be sure to check on your stuffing earlier if your slow cooker is more powerful or cooks faster.
