Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes

Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes in a crock pot – a recipe to make your life really easy.

I usually bake my sweet potatoes in large batches, but in the summertime, I choose to ignore the oven.  Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes are my new best friend.


Crock pot, who knew you were my year-round buddy?

  • Scrub the potatoes clean.
  • Pierce them with a fork, wrap in foil.
  • Slow cook in a crock pot on low for 6-8 hours.



Because of the foil, they are steamed rather than roasted and crisp.  They come out very soft and mushy.  Eat with maple butter


…or mash it up!  I used Trader Joe’s Boxed Carrot Ginger Soup to thin some out…


…then spread on toasted bread with Vegenaise…


…baby spinach…


…and Trader Joe’s Balsamic Glaze.


I wouldn’t really call this a crockpot “recipe” but I’m definitely using this method to make sweet potatoes from now on.

    This is my favorite and if you leave them in longer they stay yummy. So I make them before bed and have them for breakfast

    Ok, I just got my first crockpot, so thank you for this.
    I needed some recipes – I’m scared/excited to use it!
