Check out these 10 Slow Cooker Side Dish recipes. The perfect side dish for a weeknight dinner or holiday gathering.
Everyone immediately thinks chilis or pot roast when they hear “slow cooker” or “crock pot” but have you ever used it for a side dish? It never fails that veggie and starchy sides take a back seat to the main dish when it comes to time in the oven, especially during the holidays.
If sides are always an afterthought on weeknights, start baked lentils or baked potatoes in the morning so they’ll be ready in the evening to go along with your meal (or eat them as the meal itself). Or, during the holidays when the turkey is taking up all of the room in, make you’re green bean casserole or sausage stuffing in the crock pot instead.
Check out the pictures and links form 10 of my favorite sides from across the web that will be the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
