This classic recipe is a holiday staple. But why stand over a stove tending to it for an hour or more when you can put it in a slow cooker? While this recipe does need a small amount of attention during cooking, it’s much easier than the stovetop variety. Hope you enjoy it!

    How long would you say this would stay good? I was thinking about making it ahead of time for thanksgiving, trying to spread out my cooking over the whole week. Would leftovers freeze well?

      Stephanie, It will stay good for 3 to 4 days in the fridge, covered. It can be frozen and defrosted as well. It will last for about 4 months in the freezer:).
