Looking for a stick-to-your-ribs side dish this season that will round out your meals and leave you totally satiated? We’ve got you covered. This is technically a slow cooker dish, but its contents are so tasty and reminiscent of something we’d cook in the oven that we think it’s fair to call it a slow cooker casserole. At its core, it’s a cheesy broccoli-stuffing-stuffed recipe that everyone in our family absolutely adores. Making it in the slow cooker is a breeze – although you could also easily make this an oven bake instead – and we’re huge fans of the finished result.

What makes this dish special and different is the use of cornbread stuffing. It makes this dish more filling than your typical veggie side, plus, using the cornbread variety in particular is a great addition of flavor…the fact that it pumps up the recipe into something that will really tide you over is just a bonus! Along with the broccoli and stuffing, we’ve got cream of mushroom soup and plenty of cheese to give this dish is creamy consistency.

The broccoli softens nicely but retains a little bite to it (perfection!), and the stuffing softens up deliciously – everything just goes so well together! If you’ve got this on the docket for dinner, it doesn’t really matter what you end up making for the main course…this side dish steals the show every time!
