Has anyone ever tried cooking their stuffing (technically dressing) in a crockpot instead of stuffing it in the bird?

I am trying a new recipe this year that requires a bit more cooking time and was thinking about trying it in the crockpot instead. I don't really want to mess with the cooking time of the bird by adding a dish half way through....unless that's what others do. Suggestions?

I've totally popped in another dish while my bird was roasting before—it didn't affect things too much. The only thing I'd worry about with the crockpot is that you'd miss out on the top crispy bits that people fight over! Consider that stuffing can also be baked before the bird, and then put back in a low oven to re-warm while the bird rests.

The lovely thing about slow cooker stuffing. The crunchy part is on the bottom and all around the sides. You end up with more crunch!! :)

I've never tried but I'm sure it's possible since stuffing can be baked on it's own! Here's a good recipe: https://food52.com/recipes...

I love my slow cookers (yes..plural..I have 3). I use them all the time for everything from rice to beans to the usual. I have not cooked stuffing in them, but only because I make stuffing muffins. I never actually cook it in the turkey. I love the crunchy outside. My mom has a huge commercial convection oven, so it isn't phased by other dishes being added with the turkey. Here is a good tutorial by The Kitchn. They are trustworthy. You can use your recipe, but follow their method.

I wasn't very clear. This is their method for cooking it in a slow cooker.
