Set it and forget it! That’s one of the things we love about the slow cooker. We also love how great it does potatoes. Cook, mash and serve - all in the same place. Doesn’t get any easier, especially during the holiday crunch.


  • 5 pounds sweet potato, peeled and cut in quarters
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup Swanson® Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar


  • Tips

    • For marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes, sprinkle mashed sweet potato mixture with 2 cups miniature marshmallows.  Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.  You can also add 1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans, if you like!
  • Step 1

    Place the sweet potatoes into a 6-quart slow cooker.  Sprinkle with the cinnamon.  Add the broth.

  • Step 2

    Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or until the sweet potatoes are tender.  Do not drain.

  • Step 3

    Mash the sweet potatoes with the broth in the cooker with the butter and brown sugar.  Season to taste.  Serve immediately or cover and keep on WARM for up to 2 hours.  Stir before serving.
