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. :-)
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!
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 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.
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!
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.
