Crock Pot Sweet Potato Casserole
- 2 29 oz. cans or 3 lb. sweet potatoes
- 1/4 c. butter, softened
- 2 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. white sugar
- 1 Tbsp. orange juice
- dash of salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 c. milk or canned coconut milk
- 3/4 c. pecans, chopped
- 2/3 c. brown sugar
- 1/4 c. flour
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 c. butter, melted
Drain and mash sweet potatoes if using canned -- bake sweet potatoes in crockpot on low for 2 to 4 hours until fork tender if not using canned...peel and mash cooked sweet potatoes.
Add rest of ingredients except topping; mix very well. Put in greased crock pot. Mix topping ingredients and sprinkle on top of sweet potato mixture. Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 4 hours depending how hot your crock pot cooks. I like to remove the cover for the last 30 to 45 minutes. Serve right in the crock.
Serves 6 to 10, depending on the portion size
Note: this is easily doubled to feed more people.
