What makes these slow cooker sweet potatoes delicious and healthy
How to make these slow cooker baked sweet potatoes
Start by washing sweet potatoes and drying completely. (I usually cook about 4 at a time, but you can do up to 6 if you have a large slow cooker) Prick each potato with a fork a few times, and place each on an individual sheet of aluminum foil.
Drizzle each potato with about 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil, and rub over sweet potato completely. Wrap each potato with the aluminum foil, and place in your slow cooker. Cook potatoes on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 8-10 hours, until potatoes are soft. Remove from slow cooker with a pair of tongs or pot holder, as potatoes will be hot, and unwrap from aluminum foil before serving.
Wrapping in aluminum foil makes clean up super easy!
My favorite toppings are a little butter and cinnamon, or peanut butter! ( I know, I’m a little strange, but it’s delish!)
Throw these in your slow cooker in the morning, and cook on low to have them ready for dinner.
Do I have to wrap them in aluminum foil?
You don’t have to wrap them in foil, but it makes clean up A LOT easier, and also keeps the potatoes warmer when serving. If you don’t have any foil, you can simply leave it out, and cook as-is.
Do these baked sweet potatoes need to be refrigerated?
If you have leftovers after baking, yes. I would unwrap the potatoes from the foil, let cool completely, and store in an airtight container before refrigerating up to 4 days.
