Free up your stove-top, and use your slow cooker to cook delicious side dishes for any meal.
When your main dish requires extra attention, turn to your slow cooker for a delicious side dish. These recipes require little prep and are infused with bold flavor, thanks to their lingering cook times. You can make flavorful veggies, rice, or potato dishes you can serve as a side to any main dish. If you are preparing for a backyard barbecue, your slow cooker can help you with Uncle Jack's Mac and Cheese and Barbecue Beans. During the holidays, making Green Bean Casserole and Mashed Sweet Potatoes in the slow cooker will help free up oven space for the rest of your holiday dinner.
