They are airy and fluffy, just perfect. So much better than a microwaved potato and I didn’t even have to turn the oven on (Hallelujah!).
Crock Pot Baked Sweet Potatoes
recipe adapted from Coleen's Recipes
Scrub the potatoes clean and then dry them and rub them with olive oil. Wrap them individually in aluminum foil and set in a single layer in the crockpot.
Cook in crockpot on high anywhere between 2 to 5 hours depending on the size of the potatoes and the amount that are being cooked*, when you are able to pierce with a fork easily they are done.
Remove the aluminum foil and top with anything that you would like**.
*I cooked 2 very large sweet potatoes and it took 5 hours.
**We topped ours with butter and cinnamon sugar.
This was an incredibly good side dish with practically no work. I swung by the Food Basket and picked up a roasted chicken, a bag of romaine lettuce and dinner was served.
I am certain this will become a staple recipe in our house.
