Slow-Cooker Praline Sweet Potatoes

I had a house full of relatives and was short on cooking space. I used the basic idea of the traditional sweet potato casserole and adapted it for the slow cooker. It's been a huge hit ever since! —Joanna Stanforth, Scott Air Force Base, Illinois

    I have made this recipe (in the oven) for years but as a Registered Dietitian I tried to make it healthier and lower in calories. I use 3 cups mashed sweet potatoes, 2 eggs, salt and the vanilla. Mix well together and put in bottom of crock pot or in sprayed baking dish. Sprinkle on topping and bake. You won’t miss the sugar, butter or milk. It’s wonderful and calories drop by over half!!!!!

    I made this for a Thanksgiving dish to pass at work. I came home with an empty slow cooker. Our company president said he hadn't had a sweet potato in 20 years because the last one was so bad, he loved this! I used 7 cups of potatoes because I wanted to fill a 3 quart slow cooker and it was very sweet, I'm thinking with just 3 cups of potatoes less sugar might be better. Also I cooked this using the high setting, I was worried about the eggs being thoroughly cooked.
