Preparation

Step 1

1. Heat oven to 300°F. On large cookie sheet, spread bread cubes. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until dry.

2. Line sides of 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with foil that has been folded into thirds; spray with cooking spray.

3. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter. Add mushrooms; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until tender.
