A few other Thanksgiving sides I love are Mashed Cauliflower, Scalloped Potato Gratin, and Cranberry Pear Sauce.

I’ve adapted my garlic mashed sweet potato recipe for the slow cooker, as another option for you this Thanksgiving Day. The slow cooker is a great appliance to use on those days you have a lot to cook, and not enough room on your stove and this sweet potato recipe couldn’t be easier to adapt for the slow cooker.

I’ve also done this with maple, I just skipped the garlic and added 1 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup instead for a sweeter version. Enjoy!

And since so many are asking, I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker. I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This crock pot is so great, I actually own two!

  1. Hi Gina – I have made this recipe for the past 6ish Thanksgivings and I look forward to it every year. This will be my first time using the slow cooker, though. I’d like to double the recipe to ensure leftovers. Any idea if that will change the cook time?

  2. So, I just typed this recipe into the WW app so that I could make some changes, such as lactose free milk and possibly using Greek non-fat yogurt. I entered it at 1/2 the recipe as I only need 2 servings. At 1 lb potatoes, 1/2 tbsp of butter, etc. it came up as 9 points per serving, not 5. If I said half your recipe feeds 4, then I got 5 pts. Any ideas on why you’re so off? I hope I don’t find more of that – your recipes are so good.
