As we make our way into fall, meal planning for the holidays is the current topic of conversation. One of my favorite holidays has always been Thanksgiving because it brings family and friends together around one table with delicious food. Thanksgiving is a special, important time for our family. We like to start the day with a turkey trot. Then we head home and start baking and cooking. We tend to make certain foods every year but love adding a few new dishes to try as well.
Slow-Cooker Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Soup with Marshmallows and Pecans is the perfect starter soup for any Thanksgiving dinner. We all know how crazy the holidays can get, so leaving one dish up to your slow cooker is helpful. The soup will simmer while you are focusing on the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberries.
Once your Thanksgiving meal is ready, you can serve each guest their soup in a small bowl topped with marshmallows and pecans. The toppings take this soup to the next level and will solidify it as a new Thanksgiving favorite for your whole family.
