7 cups


  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • cup butter

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped onion

  • ¾ cup coarsely chopped red sweet pepper

  • ½ cup thinly sliced celery

  • 3 tablespoon roasted, salted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

  • 2 tablespoon snipped fresh sage or 2 tsp. dried sage, crushed

  • 5 cup dried 1-inch cubes corn bread*

  • 5 cup dried 1-inch cubes Texas toast*

  • 1 13.5 ounce pkg. cooked, smoked andouille or chorizo sausage links, halved lengthwise and sliced

  • 1 14.5 ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth


  1. Lightly coat a 3 1/2- or 4-qt. slow cooker with cooking spray. In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, sweet pepper, and celery; cook 5 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Stir in pumpkin seeds. Cook 3 minutes more or until vegetables are tender. Stir in sage.

  2. In an extra-large bowl combine corn bread and Texas toast cubes, sausage, and vegetable mixture. Drizzle with broth to moisten, tossing lightly to combine. Transfer mixture to prepared cooker.

  3. Cover and cook on low 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until heated through.


To make dried bread cubes, preheat oven to 300°F. Cut corn bread and Texas toast into 1-inch cubes. Spread cubes in two 15x10-inch baking pans. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until dry, stirring twice; cool. (Bread will continue to dry and crisp as it cools.) Or let bread cubes stand, loosely covered, at room temperature 8 to 12 hours.


For a dryer stuffing, reduce broth to 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups.
