Slow Cooker Cornbread Stuffing

No ratings yet

Comfort food can be healthy!

Nothing says “comfort food” like Cornbread Stuffing, just like the kind Grandma used to make. Our slow cooker cornbread stuffing is even easier though! This tasty recipe keeps things simple by not going overboard with unneeded ingredients. Chicken broth keeps the stuffing moist and flavorful, while celery gives it a nice crunch. If prefer a vegetarian version, just replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth.

Serve up a batch of our Cornbread Stuffing with our Herb Crusted Turkey Breast and Cranberry Sauce for dinner, and get your sweet on with our Skinny Pecan Pie for dessert.

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 6 - 7 cups cornbread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 2 cups chicken broth fat free, low sodium
  • 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning


  • In a large skillet add oil and cook celery and onion on medium-low heat until tender, about 4 minutes. Combine in a large mixing bowl cornbread crumbs, black pepper and salt. Add all remaining ingredients to cornbread mixture, stir well.
  • Lightly spray the inside of slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Add cornbread mixture and spread evenly. Cover and cook on low 4 hours.
  • For additional browning, pre-heat oven to broil, use oven mitts and remove, oven safe, slow cooker insert, place on the middle oven rack. Broil 5 - 8 minutes or until desired color is reached.


Whole grain bread crumbs can be substituted for cornbread crumbs or combine the two for an equally yummy stuffing.

    1. Susanne, There definitely are GF bread crumbs. It might be easier to find GF Panko style bread crumbs, Ian’s brand is good. Of course, you can make you own.
