  • 16 ounce loaf bread such as country, sourdough or french cut into 1" cubes
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large leek halved and sliced into half moons
  • 2 stalks celery coarsely chopped
  • 1 small fennel bulb chopped (optional)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage or 2 teaspoons dried
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable stock use another 1/2 cup if needed
  • 2 large eggs


Prepare the bread:

  • The bread must be stale for this recipe. Either leave the bread cubes out on the counter for a few days until stale, or bake at 300 degrees in the oven for 30 minutes or until crisp.

Prepare the stuffing:

  • Spray the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray and place the bread cubes in a large bowl.
  • Heat the butter in a sauté pan over medium low heat until melted. Once melted, increase the heat to medium and add the leek, celery and fennel. Cook 5 minutes or until softened, then add the garlic, herbs, salt and pepper and cook 30 seconds longer.
  • Pour the vegetable herb mixture over the bread cubes and mix well to combine.
  • Place 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock in a 2-cup measuring cup and add the eggs. Whisk or mix together with a fork until well combined and pour it over the bread mixture. Stir until the bread is coated with the stock-egg mixture and add more of the remaining 1/2 cup stock as desired -- I only needed 1 1/2 cups.
  • Pour the bread mixture into the slow cooker and spread evenly. Cook on high heat for 30 minutes to get the outer edges crispy, then decrease the heat to low and cook for 1 - 2 hours longer or until heated through.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • The stuffing may be cooked in advance and left in the slow cooker on warm until ready to serve. Be sure to check the edges of the stuffing to prevent burning as all slow cooker temperatures vary.
