Mashed Sweet Potatoes

  • 4 pounds sweet potato peeled and cubed into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cubed
  • 2 large eggs room temperature and beaten

Pecan Streusel Topping

  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups pecans roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted


Mashed Sweet Potatoes

  • Grease a 6 quart crockpot with cooking spray.
  • Place peeled and cubed potatoes into greased crockpot, then top with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, evaporated milk, vanilla, and cubed butter.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or until sweet potatoes are tender (can be easily pierced with a fork).
  • Uncover, add in eggs, then use a hand mixer to beat/mash the sweet potatoes until the desired texture is reached.
  • Smooth out the top with a spatula, then sprinkle pecan streusel (directions below) evenly over the top.
  • Cover the crockpot with a towel (it should not touch the sweet potatoes) to catch condensation, place on lid, then cook on HIGH for an additional 2 hours.
  • Serve and enjoy!

I like to make the streusel topping about 10 minutes before the sweet potatoes are done cooking so it’s ready to go!
