Delicious Crockpot Sweet Potato Casserole is the perfect holiday side dish! We love making this easy side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Crockpot Sweet Potato Casserole
My goal this year is to prepare as many crockpot thanksgiving dishes as I can!
Thanksgiving is an amazing holiday but it always seems to get filled with craziness, worry, and fighting over the oven and well a bit more craziness.
This year my goal is to help everyone have a little less stress on thanksgiving and hopefully decrease the fighting over the oven with crockpot recipes!
The first recipe we are sharing in our Crock-Pot Thanksgiving series is Crock Pot Sweet Potato Casserole!
Oh my goodness hold onto your taste buds this Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole is simply amazing! It is amazing for a couple of reasons
1. You do not need to use the oven
2. It is crazy easy to make
3. You prep the dish and walk away and the Crock-Pot takes care of all the work
4. It tastes simply Ah-Mazing! I mean seriously over the top love at first taste Ah-Mazing
- Sweet Potatoes - uncooked/raw
- Brown Sugar
- Orange Juice
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Heavy Cream
- Vanilla Extract
- Mini Marshmallows
- Pecans - optional
Optional - Cinnamon, nutmeg
Vegetable Peeler - You will want a good vegetable peeler that is comfortable to use. I love this OXO peeler and use it all the time.
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
Mix n Chop - My favorite Hamburger Mix n Chop works fantastic for mashing the sweet potatoes. You can also use a potato masher but I tend to grab my Mix and Chop for almost everything. It works great for giving the sweet potatoes a stir or mash. They will be nice and tender.
Slow Cooker Inserts/liners - If you want to save time with clean up these inserts work great.
Plan some prep time to peel the sweet potatoes or ask for family help.
Make sure you have a large bowl to hold all of the cut sweet potatoes or you can just add them into the slow cooker as you cut them.
We cook on high heat so they are done semi-quickly and we don't have to get up super early on Thanksgiving morning. You can cook on low heat for 7-8 hours if you want them to cook for longer.
I tend to leave the pecans out of our slow cooker sweet potato casserole because we have family members that can't eat nuts. I like to serve the pecans in a side dish next to the crockpot or the serving dish so they can easily add them to their plate if they want them.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
If you plan to freeze leftovers I would leave off the marshmallows. They do not handle freezing as well as the sweet potatoes.
Make sure to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating for the best results.

Works for me, simple and make ahead!
have you lost any weight on the simple plan with ww. if so how much in the two weeks
Yes, I'd like to try it with real sweet potatoes as well. How many would you say to use? I imagine you would just mash them and add with the other ingredients before adding to crock pot...
Is 2 40 0z cans correct??
Hi, I made it with the 2 40oz cans so we would have enough for Thanksgiving.
Have you tried this recipe just using real sweet potato? If so, how did you go about it?
Sounds great. I am going to try it for Thanksgiving. Question tho, how many servings do you think this is?
Krista, It makes quite a bit. I would say at least 8-10 or more depending on how much everyone enjoys it. I had enough for left overs for many days.
Ended up making it for Friendsgiving and all my friends asked for the recipe. Delicious! Making it again today for Thanksgiving. Thanks!
Krista, You just made my day! I am so glad everyone loved the recipe!! Thank you so much for letting me know.
