I’ve adapted my sweet potato mashed 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!

Just before the potatoes are ready, melt the butter in a small saute pan and sauté garlic until lightly golden. Drain the potatoes in a colander and return them to the slow cooker. Pour the garlic butter over them, add milk and sour cream and mash until smooth and creamy. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and keep the slow cooker set to warm until ready to eat or up to 2 hours.
A quick and easy chili made with ground turkey, sweet potatoes and spices – the perfect weeknight meal. It has just the right amount of spice to compliment the sweet potatoes without being too spicy for those of you who prefer a milder chili (you can of course bump up the heat if you wish).
I served this with some sweet potato chips which I found in the grocery store
and set out some chopped cilantro, scallions, sour cream and cheddar on the side as optional
toppings. Because this has no beans, it’s perfect for picky eaters (my youngest daughter is not a fan) and it’s also gluten-free and Paleo-friendly. This will be a part of my regular rotation, I highly recommend this one… enjoy!!
