Slow cooker baked sweet potatoes recipe

So, so easy. Best of all, I combined this with the Overnight sausages recipe and it totally, totally worked. I just set up the sausages as per the recipe and plonked the foil-wrapped sweet potatoes on top. Genius. Sausages and baked sweet potatoes being the perfect partners, it was a happy day in the Eccentric household.


Sweet potatoes. Predictable, but true.


Wrap as many clean but unpeeled sweet potatoes in tin foil as you wish to eat. Put them in your slow cooker. Cook on High for 4 Hours or on Low for 8. Done. We eat these with chilli butter, simply mashing a few dried chilli flakes into about a tbsp of butter per potato. It's a great addition.


This was a perfect meal. Easy, good contrasts, colourful, filling but not stodgy. I could happily eat this once a week. It's just there are so many recipes I want to try....


  1. This looks great! I made baked potatoes in the slow cooker for the first time a couple of days ago, after reading on various blogs that they're really good! I did a little experiment and did both foil and non-foil versions. They both work brilliantly so I think I'll avoid the foil in future (slight tinny flavour). Just rub the spuds with a little bit of olive oil and salt and cook! You can also put them in verically if you're making a lot (for say a BBQ). Great isn't it? I adore my slow cooker(s) too :) Thanks for the great recipes.

  2. Glad to be of help Eleni! Yes, baked normal spuds work well too. The salt and oil is a great trick. I've done that in the oven so should try it in the SC. Happy cooking!
