The awesome thing about slow cooker recipes is that you just throw everything in together and forget about it while you focus on other things, like actually enjoying time with your family.
For my family’s Thanksgiving dinner we have a smorgasbord of so many dishes. There are about 30 of us that all get together at my grandparent’s house so we have to really cook for a crowd.
I searched the internet to find some great slow cooker sides that would be perfect for a Thanksgiving meal.
I can’t wait to try some more out this year, I love using my Crock-pots whenever I can!
