Baked Sweet Potatoes

Yep, that's it.

Baked Sweet Potatoes.

In your crockpot.

I don't like making baked potatoes in the oven. I know it's technically faster than the crockpot, but I can't walk away and forget about it, I always seem to be knee-deep in a diaper change when the timer goes off, and I can't check on them while holding the baby while they are in the oven. The crockpot gives me wiggle room and also forgives my absent-mindedness and sleep-deprived goofs.

I've done this two nights in a row now, and Will LOVES it. You could rub some spices on the sweet potatoes before you put them in the crockpot, or you could just have them plain and simple like we do.

Sweet potatoes are super carby, so if you're trying to lose weight, you might want to limit your intake. If you have kiddos, they need lots of the starch and carbs, so make them every day! :-)

The Tools:

- 4 qt. crockpot

- 2 large sweet potatoes

The Process:

Wash off the sweet potatoes.

Don't dry them. You want the moisture in the crock.

Stab each sweet potato (carefully!!!) with a fork 5-6 times.

Plop them in the crockpot. Cover it.

Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
