What are the most common side dishes served at Thanksgiving? Stuffing, Potatoes, and the infamous Green Bean Casserole. This video demonstrates how to make these three must-haves in an easy to follow “show me how” step by step video.
These sweet potatoes are switched up from the fluffy casserole that most are used to eating. The use of orange juice to create a glaze for the cooked potatoes is a nice touch. The crumbled bacon garnish with orange zest is a welcome complement to the sweetness of the potatoes and orange juice.
The cornbread stuffing is. . . well. . . another cornbread stuffing recipe.
Our favorite is the Green Bean Casserole and we have provided the recipe details below the video. The surprise ingredient here is the Alfredo sauce. Not your ordinary green bean casserole recipe.
The other recipes are in the video. They all take some prep but then again isn’t that part of the Thanksgiving traditions? Grab that relative and put them to work. Then let the slow cookers work while you watch football.
So if you are one of those crock-pot/slow cooker fanatics, you just might have 3 slow cookers around to make all three at once!
