There are many methods you can use to cook sweet potatoes, the most popular being roasting, boiling and mashing and in the slow cooker.
How to Roast Sweet Potatoes
Coat sweet potatoes in a mixture of butter, cinnamon, lemon peel and honey. Bake in your trusty 13x9-inch pan and you’ll have a delicious, no-fail side dish.
How to Make Mashed Sweet Potatoes
This is one of the most popular (and easiest!) ways to serve sweet potatoes. Simply boil and mash the potatoes with salt, pepper and butter. For a flavor boost, cook some chopped apples, cinnamon and sugar in a skillet and add it to the mashed sweet potatoes.
How to Make Sweet Potatoes in the Slow Cooker
Let the slow cooker do the hard work in this easy recipe for sweet potato casserole. Simmer potatoes, butter sugar and pumpkin pie spice for a casserole that’ll be bursting with flavor. Add some marshmallows before serving to get that holiday feel.
Pro tip: Low on time? You can also make sweet potatoes in the microwave. Pierce whole potatoes with a fork several times and cook in the microwave for 8 to 12 minutes, turning once halfway through. Let the potatoes stand for one minute. Serve with butter, margarine, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey or even seasonings like cinnamon, allspice or nutmeg.
