There just has to be a sweet potato casserole at my Thanksgiving table!!!
Unfortunately my family doesn’t feel the same way. For me there is just something about the mixture of a sweet potato with all these trimmings that bring a smile to my face and let me know that the holiday season is officially here. So instead of making a whole casserole that hardly gets touched, I make an easy individual sweet potato casserole for fans like me.
Here is what you will need:
- sweet potatoes – nice sized and scrubbed clean
- brown sugar
- mini marshmallows
- pecans – chopped
- salt & pepper
Here is what you need to do:
Rub your sweet potatoes with a little oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Wrap them up tightly in foil and place in a slow cooker. Add about a ½ cup of water to the base of the slow cooker. It’s ok to stack the potatoes if you are making a bunch. I like to use the slow cooker with this dish. This way I can set it all up and forget about them until it’s time to finish them under the broiler.
Cook on high for 4 hours.
When they are ready, slice open and break up the inside with a fork. Sprinkle with brown sugar, salt & pepper. Cube up butter and add a few pieces to the mix. Top with mini marshmallows and chopped pecans and put under broiler until marshmallows are nicely toasted.
And there you have it.
