Crockpot Stuffing with Leeks and Sausage Recipe

This delicious stuffing is made easier in the crockpot/slow cooker! The addition of leeks and sausage makes it unique and delicious. Don't limit this to Thanksgiving fare. It is a great side dish to any meal, any time of the year.


This delicious slow cooker sausage and leek stuffing recipe kinda fell into my food blogging abyss. Which is truly a shame because it was fabulously tasty. So tasty that I made it twice in the same week. Way back in November. Before this recipe, I had never attempted stuffing. I hit a home run with this one. The flavor is amazing and the crockpot did all of the work for me. And who can resist a recipe with leeks? I love 'em.


Using a slow cooker liner was a good call because it kept the stuffing super moist and there was not a single burnt morsel.


And this isn't just for Thanksgiving! It will go great with any meal, any time of year.


Okie dokie, I'm off to see what other recipes I can dig out of the abyss. Have a wonderful rest of your week, my friends!
