Benefits of a slow cooker (Crockpot)

Spiral hams are delicious anytime, but especially around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. When preparing meals for a Christmas dinner or even a big Sunday dinner, oven space becomes an issue. Heating the ham in the instant cooker saves space in the oven for side dishes and rolls and allows the meat to simmer in the glorious sauce. Another benefit of using the clay pot is that it does not dry out the ham. The ham stays tender and tasty. You can always cover the ham with aluminum foil before serving to prevent it from drying out.

The best side dishes to serve with crockpot


Do you want to make this slow cook spiral ham but need some ideas to accompany? We almost always serve this ham with our potato casserole with cheese (also known as funeral potatoes), but it is also VERY good with parmesan potato halves or Dauphinoise potatoes (scalloped potatoes). You can also serve with a salad (I love making our Christmas salad, especially), sautéed peas, or even creamy potatoes and peas. You can’t go wrong with any of these ideas for the sides!
