This looks delicious! I'm planning on making it tomorrow to go with our turkey. Have you ever tried making this in a slow cooker? Any hints? Thanks so much.

This was a huge success at Thanksgiving! Everyone asked for the recipe. Prepped all the veggies the day before so all we had to do was cook it while the turkey rested.
