Hi, I'm doing this recipe for the first time (Gammon i slow cooker as we speak grin) and was wondering what you serve with it?

I was going to do roast dinner trimmings (roast tatties, stuffing ect) but to be honest none of us really fancy all that tonight.

I'm going to pop to asda in a bit so ideas would be most welcome. Tia smile

I had it recently with a lots of lovely salad and roast potatoes.

I would do it with green veg and baby potatoes

Mashed potatoes to soak up the cola juices and corn on the cob.

Sweet corn and mashed potato.

I would do it with a potato salad made with just-boiled spuds, heaps of mayo and spring onion.

Hungry now!

I often do braised red cabbage and wedges

These all sound so nice! I think I'm going to make a potato salad and a seasonal salad to use up the last of the salad dressing in the fridge. A bit of a summer dinner to try and blot out all the wintery weather. grin

Dauphinoise potatoes and veg if cold, salad if warm

Its nice with peppered potatoes (just boiled potatoes with lots of black cracked and white ground pepper on top

We are having this for dinner with braised red cabbage and roast potatoes.
It has shrunk to about half it's previous size as I keep eating bits from it.

Baked potatoes and coleslaw.
Red cabbage with spring onions and mustard yoghurt dressing.

I will be making this tomorrow for first time. Quick question - does the coke become the gravy and exactly how do you cook it in the slow cooker?

Baby potatoes tossed in herby butter, pile of greens/red cabbage. Yum.
