12 Easy Slow Cooker Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

The best side dishes for Thanksgiving. Period.

Updated November 08, 2021
12 Easy Slow Cooker Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

Save room in your oven this Thanksgiving and make classic thanksgiving side dish recipes in your slow cooker. You'll love these 12 Easy Slow Cooker Side Dishes for Thanksgiving! This collection includes stuffing recipes, sweet potato recipes, and so much more.
 
No one says spectacular Thanksgiving side dish recipes all need to be made in your oven. Your oven's already likely packed with a huge turkey, and placing too many items in an oven at once results in dishes that don't cook evenly. By prepping certain dishes in a slow cooker, you can cook more efficiently. Not to mention, you can prep your slow cooker Thanksgiving side dishes ahead, and because they're cooking slowly, you don't have to frequently to check on them while you're attending to other recipes. You'll be amazed at the spectacular Thanksgiving side dish recipes you can whip in your slow cooker. So, get cooking and try them out!
