Crock Pot Harvest Pecan Sweet Potatoes
I made my first Sweet Potato Casserole for Thanksgiving somewhere around 8 or so years ago (man time flies!). Every year Mikey raves about it and makes a comment about having a dessert disguised as a side. 😉 I am pretty sure I could sneak in this Crock Pot Harvest Pecan Sweet Potatoes recipe, free up some oven time…and Mikey will never know the difference! These are that good!
- 2 29 oz cans sweet potatoes drained
- 1/3 c plus 2t butter melted and divided
- 2 T sugar
- 1/3 c plus 2 T brown sugar packed and divided
- 1 T orange juice
- 2 eggs beaten
- ½ c milk
- 1/3 c chopped pecans
- 2 T all-purpose flour
Spray your crock pot with cooking spray (We used a Casserole Crock Pot)
In a separate bowl, mash up your sweet potatoes
Mix in your 1/3 c melted butter, sugar and 2 T brown sugar with your mashed sweet potatoes
Next add in your juice, eggs and milk and beat
Place your sweet potato mixture in your crock pot
In a separate bowl, mix together your pecans, flour, the rest of your brown sugar and butter
Spread your pecan mixture over your potato mixture
Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours
This Crock Pot Harvest Pecan Sweet Potatoes recipe was perfect for my 9 x13 casserole slow cooker made by Crock Pot! If you don’t have one yet, I would use at least a 5-quart crock since it won’t have all the room to spread out, and you will want to watch your cook times the first time through to make sure you can adjust your cooking time if needed.
