The sweet potatoes are boiled, and the casserole is made right in your crockpot! However, if  you want it NOW (and I don’t blameyou),you can also make it in the oven. (See directions below.)

I like to pop my crockpot sweet potato casserole under the broiler to toast the marshmallows at the end, but you certainly don’t have to. You could just add the marshmallows into the crockpot instead. They’re still get ooey gooey, just not browned.

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole Tips

  1. Even with a sharp knife sweet potatoes can be hard to cut. Try microwaving for 2-3 minutes before dicing.
  2. Use a slow cooker liner (found in the foil/saran wrap aisle) to make clean up a breeze!
