I was thrilled to see a slow cooker recipe, to free up my oven, for Sweet Potato Casserole! It was Turkey Day for just me and my husband, and he doesn't particularly LIKE sweet potatoes, so I felt free to improvise and omit what I didn't have and what I didn't like! I did NOT use the pecans, or any sugar. In a large bowl, I just mashed the ONE can of sweet potatoes (again, it was just for the 2 of us), added a tablespoon of melted margarine, a tablespoon of orange juice, ONE egg, NO milk, no flour, and sprayed the slow cooker with olive oil to grease. I took a lot of people's advice: Cooked on high for 2 hours, turned to low the 3rd hour, and also at the beginning of the 3rd hour, I covered the entire top of the sweet potatoes with LARGE marshmallows (they melted into the potatoes). What a wonderful flavor! I definitely will make this again! Of COURSE I gave it 5 stars, because I didn't make it as written. (If I had made it EXACTLY as written and THEN didn't like it, I THEN would have decreased the number of stars! How can ANYONE give a recipe less than 5 stars if they don't make it EXACTLY as written??? I am still mystified by that!)
