Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Tips

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