Sweet potatoes are SO inexpensive right now! My grocery store has them for 25 cents a pound! This is my favorite 'lazy man' (or woman) sweet potato method.
1) wash sweet potatoes
2) throw in crockpot
Cook on high for 4 hours until soft. I threw in a few red potatoes here and will mash them all up together for dinner with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
PS - A lot of people have asked if you need to add water. Nope. Just the instructions I wrote above. There will be some water on the potatoes from washing them and they will 'sweat' as they cook creating moisture. I promise, it works great just using this simple two-step method!
