This recipe worked out great for me as is, although I added 3 different kinds of mushrooms because we LOVE mushrooms. I totally agree that the amount of broth depends on the type of bread you use (whole grain more, white less; dry cubes more, fresh less).
But what I don't get is those folks who say that they stirred the mixture every hour while cooking. Anyone who takes the cover off the crock pot during cooking, EVEN ONCE, EVEN TO PEEK (that's why they have glass covers!), defeats 90% of the purpose and benefits of crock pot cooking -- moisture retention, proper temp retention, flavor infusion, start-it-and-forget-it ease of cooking, etc. This goes for anything you cook in a crock pot. As this recipe says, you stir all the ingredients in a mixing bowl until moistened, then transfer to the crock pot, cover, and cook on low for 4 to 8 hours. Perhaps every crock pot recipe needs to add the phrase "AND DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER FOR ANY REASON WHILE COOKING!"
