Are you looking for an easy way to have those creamy steakhouse sweet potatoes with dinner? These Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes are super easy to toss into the slow cooker and come out great every time!
I am in love. In love with this method of making sweet potatoes. UPDATED now with a video from Mikey.
I normally cook mine in the microwave but it will be slow cooker from here on out. They came out so much more flavorful and creamier. That and I usually get the microwave ready sweet potatoes which cost about a buck each, but buying them from the bulk bin instead, they were 1/3 of the price! That came in really handy in my $50 Challenge.
I got the idea from Gooseberry Patch’s Grilling and Campfires Cooking. There is a great recipe in there for Crockery Baked Potatoes that I just adapted it for my sweet potatoes.
