Individual Sweet Potato Casserole

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
  • butter
  • 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. :)
