I always make this casserole to take to a family Thanksgiving dinner, but my oven, but my oven was on the blink so tried this recipe. It was so much better than mine cooked in the oven.

These are amazing. I made them for Thanksgiving and my whole family requested I make them for Christmas dinner as well!

Delicious. Made this last thanksgiving and was coming back to print out another copy. I made a marshmallow sauce and drizzled it over individual servings when i served it.

Made this at Easter. It's a great crockpot recipe and tastes just like regular sweet potato casserole made in the oven. I liked it because I didn't need to use up oven space while I cooked the other recipes. Everyone was happy.

I made this, however, I did not add the pecans because one of my dinner guest's was allergic to nuts. I did add about 8 marshmallows (6 serving size). They melted into the sweet potato mixture and made the dish a little creamier. Not that it needed it. Everyone loved the taste and were surprised to know tha marshmallows were among the ingredients. Added the second patch of brown sugar to taste. This was easy with the crock pot but kept an eye on it because I didn't add the nuts. I'm sure the dish would have been great with the nuts but without, it was a crowd pleaser! I'd make this again!
