Sweet Potato Casserole

I love the fact that this is made in the slow cooker. It frees up the oven and stove burners, and makes the timing a lot more laid back. While this is not my momma's recipe, she is a big fan of it.

Sweet Potato Casserole
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and mashed (I usually bake them, but you can boil them if you prefer)
3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 cup of canned crushed pineapple
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons of Splenda
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of mini marshmallows

Lightly spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix the sweet potatoes, melted butter, pineapple, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Spoon half of the mixture into the slow cooker. Cover with ½ cup of marshmallows. Cover with the remaining sweet potato mixture. Cover and cook on high for 1 to 2 hours, or until hot in the center. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup of marshmallows on top, cover, and cook 5 minutes longer or until melted.


  1. Okay, got it! I'll let you know. I'm sure it will be great. A very Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. This sounds really good and I think I'll try it... the only part I don't get is... why eggs? The rest makes sense to me.

    Thanks for this idea.
