A Dressing That Covers All Your Bases
The trick to making sure everyone gets a spoonful of dressing that's both tender and crisp? Make it in a slow cooker, and when you're serving it, scoop from the outside of the cooker in toward the middle. That's because the edges of the dressing—the parts that touch the perimeter of the slow cooker—become crunchier since they're closer to the hot walls of the cooking insert, while the interior portion is softer. This version includes sausage, boxed cornbread dressing and the usual celery and onion.
