Best Ever Thanksgiving Dressing


One week from today and I start my Thanksgiving cooking and one of my favorite recipes is this one for the absolute best ever dressing. It is the recipe of Amy Main and I've made it for the past several years ever since she first shared it with me.
It's a very moist dressing that's made in the crockpot, which I love because it frees up oven space and once you start it you don't have to worry about it. It's simple, easy and delicious! Enjoy!

Amy Main's Best Ever Moistest Ever Dressing

1 cup butter
2 cups chopped onions
2 cups chopped celery
1/4 cup parsley sprigs, chopped
2-4 oz cans sliced mushrooms, drained
12-13 cups slightly dry bread cubes
1 t. poultry seasoning
1/2 t. salt and pepper
1 1/2 t. sage
2-2 1/2 cups chicken broth (I use the boullion to make this)
2 eggs, beaten

Melt butter in skillet and saute onion, celery, parsley and mushrooms. Pour over bread cubes in a very large mixing bowl. Add all other seasonings and toss well. Pour enough broth to moisten; add beaten eggs and mix well. Pack lightly into crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 45 minutes; reduce to low for 4-8 hours. 6 servings

I love the idea of freeing up the oven by using the crockpot. My only problem is that I have several non mushroom eaters. I love them, but wonder how leaving them out would affect the taste or texture?
