    Delicioso. Made it for thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Used half the sugar the second time because it was a bit rich. Also added 2 tablespoons of rum and a dash of ground cloves. Added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the topping.

    I agree with previous reviewer. We did this recipe last year and will repeat this year for the inlaws. Nice to have the dish done in the slow cooker to free up the stove/oven. For those who enjoy sweet potatoes, they loved it. Some said it was almost like sweet potatoe pie.

    This recipe was easy and a clever use to save space in the oven. However, the sweet potatoes I used were home-baked, not from a can. I cannot imagine how disgustingly sweet they'd be in the heavy syrup. I thought it was really sweet with fresh unsweetened baked sweet potatoes! It will be a staple at our holiday meals but NOT canned in heavy syrup. This is a side dish - not dessert.

    Served this last Thanksgiving and got lots of compliments; friends are still asking for the recipe. SOOOO easy in the slow cooker too; doesn't interfere with other dishes for Thanksgiving.

    I made this as part of Christmas dinner. It was delicious! I liked the sweetness, and agree that it tastes a bit like dessert (yum). So many people were asking for the recipe and were surprised that it was made in a slow cooker. It's an easy dish to prepare, and then sits in the slow cooker while the rest of dinner is getting prepared. I highly recommend it! I've made it twice now, second time without the pecans (because of someone with a nut allergy) - came out great both ways!

    I volunteered to bring the sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. I am not, I repeat NOT, a cook so I looked for the easiest recipe. I made a couple of changes as was recommended on previous comments. 1 - I peeled, cubed and then boiled the potatoes. Then mashed them. 2 - I added 1/2 teaspoon to the topping mixture. 3 - I baked mine in the oven at 300 degree for 3 hours. Everyone wanted to know who made the Sweet Potatoes. It was me!!! Maybe there is hope for me after all. :-)

    Made this last Thanksgiving. Even my teenager who supposedly doesn't like sweet potatoes went back for seconds. It was delicious. For previous reviewers who questioned the baking time, take note that it is for a crock pot, not the stove top or regular oven.

    my roomate's sister makes $68 every hour on the computer. She has been without a job for 6 months but last month her pay was $8123 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it on this web site ddp.net/vv3

    The recipe sounds delicious, but is there an error in the baking time?

    That can't be right...."Cover and Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours". The house would burn down by then. Please take this down before someone gets hurt.

    I did make some changes to this, since we don't like the cloying sweetness of it. I used 1/2 cup dark brown sugar and omitted the white sugar completely and substituted light cream for whipping cream. I separated the eggs, beat the egg whites separately and folded them as the last ingredient to make more of a lighter souffle type of dish, baked it at 350 for an hour. It was lovely and got rave reviews.

    Loved the simplicity of this recipe and that it didn't take up precious oven space. The next time I make this, I will eliminate the 1/2 cup sugar mixed into the sweet potatoes (there is PLENTY of sugar in the topping that seeps into the potato mixture) and lower the temp on my crock pot from high to low. My guests loved it!

    This is excellent! I love that it uses a slow cooker and doesn't take up oven space. So easy, and even better than the one I used to make where I had to peel and cook all of the sweet potatoes. I will keep making this again and again!

    Very tasty, and a lovely idea using the crock pot I will make this again for Christmas however it was very sweet so like the others I will swap out the sugar(s).

    I made this yesterday for Thanksgiving. No one liked it. I think it would have been better to leave out the eggs.

    hey imawriter you need to be a "imareader" the recipe is for a crock pot! That is an appliance that plugs in and is used on your counter top.

    Love this recipe, whether fresh potatoes or canned (cuz I had to double the recipe, that's alot of potatoes!), if comes out fabulous every time! For those for whom this recipe is a little sweeter than desired, I have substituted the white sugar, along with tossing the syrup from the can, and added one small can of crushed pineapple. This adds a little bit of tart, as well as diminishing the very sweet taste! A family fav for sure!
