Give Thanks to the Slow Cooker

Oct 28, 2016 04:30AM ● Published by Family Features

This year, skip the overloaded oven and put your slow cooker to good use with these seven recipes. Classic sides and desserts can be slow-cooked to perfection, delivering the nostalgic flavors and aromas of your childhood Thanksgiving with less fuss.

  1. Slow Cooker Sausage StuffingItalian sausage, sage and rosemary combine in the slow cooker with French bread for a flavorful, aromatic stuffing.

  1. Slow Cooker Mashed Sweet Potatoes with MarshmallowsA clever version of a beloved favorite. Cook sweet potatoes in the slow cooker with cinnamon and nutmeg then mash and top with mini marshmallows.

  1. Slow Cooker Cranberry SauceMade with just five ingredients, a slow cooker full of cranberries is infused with sugar, cinnamon, bay leaves and an orange.

  1. Slow Cooker Creamed Corn with Ricotta, Rosemary and Bacon  – This hearty side combines sweet corn, rich ricotta cheese and bacon with a blend of rosemary, thyme, paprika and onion powder. Add a touch of cayenne pepper for a kick of heat.

  1. Slow Cooker Chocolate Pecan Pie CakeChocolate cake, infused with cinnamon and vanilla, provides the base for a sweet and crunchy pecan pie topping. Top it with ice cream for some melty goodness.

  1. Slow Cooker Pumpkin Cake with Caramel SauceChocolate chip pumpkin-spiced cake is topped with a sticky caramel sauce for an ooey-gooey, decadent dessert.

  1. Slow Cooker Oatmeal Apple CobblerCelebrate the flavors of the season with fresh apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and oats, creating a nostalgic cobbler right from the slow cooker.
