Crockpot Sweet Potato Casserole is perfect for holidays or Sunday dinner! Our family loves this recipe for Thanksgiving and it is so easy to make.

I love having sweet potato casserole but I can’t stand that it takes up space in the oven and that I can’t make it until I have the turkey or ham done.

So this past Christmas Eve I was hosting with all of my in-laws coming over and I thought why not try to make the sweet potato casserole in the crockpot. Boy am I glad I did because it turned out amazing!  This recipe is going to be on all of our Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter menu plans from now on.

Crockpot Sweet Potato Casserole is amazing! Few ingredients and no mess!

I put everything together in the crockpot and four hours later it was rich, creamy and smooth. Then I put the marshmallows on top and put the lid on halfway and the marshmallows baked right up. My in-laws and hubby raved about how good it was good. So from now on I will never make sweet potato casserole in the oven I will only make them in the slow cooker!

Open cans and drain yams in colander. Place yams in crockpot. Pour heavy cream in. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the top. Place butter chunks on top. Place lid on and set on low for 4 hours. After 4 hours stir sweet potatoes really well. Place marshmallows on top. Place lid on top halfway allowing room for steam to escape. Once marshmallows have puffed up it is ready to serve, takes about 15-30 minutes.

  1. can you use sweet potatoes? I have seen recipes for mashed potatoes in the crock pot so could you make mashed sweet potatoes & then add the rest of the ingredients to make the casserole? Thank you.

    1. Yes, you could! You can actually just peel and cut up and then par boil to make tender then follow the rest of the recipe.

  2. Has anyone tried using heavy whipping cream instead of just heavy cream. I’ve only found it at one store and they’re sold out. Walmart doesn’t even sell it. :/

    1. It is best to use Whole Milk (you need the fat) or for example if you’re cooking, need a cup of heavy cream, and don’t have any on hand you substitute 3/4 cup milk and 1/4 melted butter thoroughly mixed. It won’t whip but otherwise will work well in any recipe that calls for heavy cream.

  3. What is the consistency supposed to be when finished? I tried doubling the recipe for a work potluck, and it seems really runny…any suggestions for next time?
