A step-by-step tutorial on How to Bake Sweet Potatoes in the Slow Cooker… aka the easiest way ever!
Side note: I photographed these potatoes for this post all the way back in November. Like three months ago. I distinctly remember it because it was the weekend my morning sickness first hit. It’s safe to say, I never felt like posting anything food related until now. I also did not eat any of these potatoes.
If you happened to find me through Google, it very well may have been from searching for this post. That’s right, y’all. Out of everything I have posted over these last four years, my “How to Make a Baked Sweet Potato in the Microwave” post is by far the most popular thing I have ever written. My vegan carrot hot dogs are a close second.
Though I still resort to the microwave method when I need a baked potato in under ten minutes, I have a new favorite go-to method. Sure, the actual oven works great, but lately I have become best friends with my slow cooker. Let’s blame it on the fact that it is officially slow cooker season. Or maybe it is simply because right now I want to be as hands off with my cooking as possible. I have pregnancy exhaustion to thank for that!
I definitely wouldn’t really call this a “recipe.” But since y’all love learning my methods for baking sweet potatoes, I figured it needs to be shared!
How to Bake Sweet Potatoes in the Slow Cooker
Start by purchasing medium-sized sweet potatoes that are roughly the same size. I ended up using several different varieties and they all seemed to cook for about the same length of time, but I recommend experimenting with this a bit on your own. Four potatoes was the perfect amount to fit in my slow cooker.A tutorial on How to Bake Sweet Potatoes in the Slow Cooker! #recipe #Paleo Click To Tweet
