Equipment

  • Slow Cooker

Ingredients

  • 4 lbs sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 eggs whisked
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup water
  • nonstick spray

Brown Sugar Pecan Topping

  • 1 cup pecans whole or chopped
  • 2/3 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter melted

Instructions

  • Spray your slow cooker with nonstick spray.
  • Peel and dice the sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes and place them into the slow cooker. Along with the brown sugar, honey, water, melted butter, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Cook on high for 3 hours or until the sweet potatoes are fork-tender. 
  • Uncover the pot and let the potatoes cool slightly. Add the eggs and use a potato masher to mash the potatoes. 
  • In a small bowl, mix all of the topping ingredients and then cover the mashed sweet potatoes with the mixture. Cover and cook for 2 hours on high. 
  • Serve warm and enjoy. 

Notes

  • I used a 6 qt crockpot.
  • If cooking for a large crowd, double or triple the recipe.
  • Not a fan of pecans? Feel free to use walnuts instead. You can also use mini marshmallows and omit the brown sugar pecan topping.
  • Make sure to let the sweet potatoes cool slightly before adding the eggs, so it doesn't scramble.
