Thanksgiving With Your Slow Cooker

Thanksgiving meal table setting

Cooking the Thanksgiving meal can be a hectic endeavor involving an overcrowded oven, multiple assistants and mad timing skills. This year, save your sanity by preparing at least part of your Thanksgiving with your slow cooker.

Even if you have a double oven, the nature of a traditional Thanksgiving menu tends to mean that certain dishes are rotated in and out of the oven in order to cook them and then keep them hot. It’s an annoying process and it doesn’t have to be this way, people! Trust me on this: it’s soooo much easier to plan on cooking at least one Thanksgiving recipe in your slow cooker (heck, you can even cook a turkey breast in the slow cooker).

Looking for a few ideas? Here are some of our favorites, below.

Whatever you end up doing to get all your Thanksgiving favorites on the table this year, we wish you a holiday that’s delicious in all possible ways.
