Slow Cooker Sausage Apple Stuffing Recipe

This slow cooker sausage apple stuffing recipe is a great example of the joy of Thanksgiving slow cooking. A personal favorite, I love the boost of flavor provided by the turkey sausage and chopped apple. And because the slow cooker retains more moisture than the oven you don’t need to add any additional butter or oil, saving calories and points without sacrificing taste or texture.

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces ground turkey sausage, browned and drained

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1.5 cups chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1.5 cups chopped apple

Instructions

  • Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart.
  • Heat the broth, poultry seasoning, black pepper, celery and onion in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender, stirring often.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the stuffing mix, chopped apple and cooked sausage and mix lightly.
  • Spoon the stuffing mixture into a greased 4-quart slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on LOW 3 to 4 hours, until heated through.
