Crock Pot Sweet Potato Casserole

When it comes to preparing Thanksgiving dinner, oven space is on high demand.

So why not put your crock pot to work and free up some valuable space in the oven?



Whether you’re hosting dinner at your place or bringing a dish to the party, this Crock Pot Sweet Potato Casserole is here to save the day. It’s so simple to make, but tastes like you slaved for hours over it. Everyone will love it!

If you’ve ever traveled with a crock pot you know the tricky game you play of carefully balancing it between your feet while you yell at your husband to, “SLOW DOWN!” and, “DON’T GO SO FAST AROUND THE CORNER!”

Let me introduce you to the best thing ever invented. EVER.

It’s the Hamilton Beach Stay or Go 7 Quart Portable Slow Cooker!

It has a lid that can clasp down securely so there are no more unnecessary spills while travelling. Plus it’s 7 quart capacity can hold large amounts of food for those big gatherings.

The perfect gift for… anyone! {hint: Hamilton Beach is giving one away below!}

To make the sweet potato casserole simply find 5 medium-large sweet potatoes.

Peel them and then cut them into even sized cubes (about 1-2 inches).

Toss them all into the crock pot, along with some chicken broth and a little butter.

Close the lid and walk away.

After 3 hours you’ll be able to easily mash the sweet potatoes.

Once it’s all mashed up lightly beat 2 eggs along with some vanilla and pour it right into the crock pot.

Add a little more sweetness with a cup of brown sugar.

Give it a good stir, and mix thoroughly.

Then quickly whip up the pecan topping.

Sprinkle it evenly over the mashed sweet potatoes, cover, and let it cook for another 2 hours.

That’s what I love so much about this recipe.

It’s so simple, it practically makes itself.

Which gives you more time to prepare other dishes… or play with your kids… or start holiday shopping. {check out my Holiday Gift Guide}
