Apple Sausage Slow Cooker Stuffing

Slow Cooker Stuffing is your sanity saviour for a holiday meal, or heck even just a Sunday turkey dinner. I love that you put it into the crockpot in the morning and by the time your turkey is ready, your stuffing is as well. I don’t stuff my turkeys, I prefer to make the stuffing on the side and this is the perfect way to make it!

 Tips & Tricks for Making Amazing Slow Cooker Stuffing

  • Make sure that you fully cook the onions before you add them! Onions are notorious for staying hard and not cooking unless they are cooked in the frying pan fully!
  • You can use almost any type of sausage that you want to! If you want it spicy use your favourite spicy Italian sausage.
  • Don’t skip the apple! It really makes this slow cooker stuffing sweet and savoury!
