Sweet Potato Casserole
Sweet potatoes with marshmallows cooked in your 5-6 quart slow cooker. This recipe has marshmallows on top, but its tastes just as good without and we don’t need all those extra calories if we can avoid them.
This is one of my go to favorite family dishes for that special occasion and you can always make the mash a day or two in advance to save time and then just re-heat it by adding the marshmallows right before dinner.
