Guys, this recipe is actually so easy, it’s almost not a recipe. Naturally gluten free sweet potatoes are a staple in our house. I roast about 6 sweet potatoes at a time in the crock pot and then just keep what we don’t eat for dinner in the fridge in a container and use them all week. I’ll slice one in half and scoop out what I’m going to use and microwave it. I’ll use sweet potato as a side for chicken or pork with butter and salt or I’ll top it with a fried egg for breakfast.
AND— This is a super easy way to cook sweet potatoes for sweet potato casserole for the holidays!!
I’ll actually put a “recipe” after this post, but all you have to do is clean the sweet potatoes, poke holes in them with a sharp pointy thing, put them in the crock pot and turn it on. High for 4 hours or Low for 6-8. The actual cooking time will vary depending on the size and age of your crock pot, and the amount and size of your sweet potatoes.
I’ve found that using a crock pot liner is a real time saver for sweet potatoes. They leave the bottom of the crock pot sticky with little hard to scrub off splurps.
