OT: Crockpot Dressing









To be honest, I found a picture of a cuter dog, but this one seemed to epitomize everything we have to be thankful for. 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Never Dry Crockpot Dressing

1 cup butter or margarine, melted (You can get away with using a little less, but heck, it's Thanksgiving!)
2 cups chopped onion (I usually add a tad more, but then we love onion in our food.)
2 cups chopped celery
1/4 cup parsley (fresh or dried)
2 cups canned mushrooms, drained (I use fresh sliced.)
2 eggs, beaten
3 1/2 to 4 1/2 cups chicken broth, or enough to moisten well
13 cups dry bread, cubed (I can never find unseasoned, so it takes about two of the Italian loaves from the bakery.)
1 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
2 tsp salt
2 tsp sage
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp marjoram


Melt butter or margarine in LARGE fry pan and saute onion and celery until soft. Mix with remaining ingredients and toss well. Pack in large crockpot. Cover. Cook on high for 45 minutes, then turn to low and continue cooking for 6-8 hours. 

Oh . . . the aroma!!!!!

Oh my! To tell you the truth, I got a little queasy when I saw the title of the blog and then the picture! :-D

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

LOL! My bad!

I use Morgue Files for a lot of my pictures, and when I put Thanksgiving into the search box, I got a few pumpkins, and these adorable dogs with fall flowers. I didn't even think about the, um . . . awkward connection.

Thanks for the recipe, Peg. It sounds yummy. Wishing you and your family a safe, fun, happy Thanksgiving!

I love the scent of sage. Your recipe is similar to mine, but I use cornbread, no parsley or mushrooms. Dressing is my favorite part of Thanksgiving.

The dog looks old and probably thankful there on a quiet patio with flowers. Happy Thanksgiving.
