Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
Try cooking this in a crockpot! Mine has a removable insert so I just assembled a day ahead, put everything in the insert and refrigerated overnight. The next day I popped it in the cooking well, turned it on and forgot about it until time to eat. I did mine on HI for 2 hours but you could also do LO for 4. I also add 1/4 cup of orange juice to the sweet potato mixture. You don't taste it but it does a wonderful job brightening and rounding out the flavors. I think refrigerating overnight also allow the flavors to blend better. And hey...if you're putting it together the day before why not take the time to bake the potatoes? You won't get that carmelization any other way. I just pierce the potatoes and put them into one of those big throwaway aluminum roasting pans on 450 for 1 hour. No need to wrap in aluminum and no worries about those nasty black stalactites (or stalagmites - forgot which one goes UP) in the bottom of your oven. :)

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole
Try adding 1/4 to 1/3 cup of orange juice (pulpless) to the potato mixture before adding the topping. It adds delightful brightness to an already scrumptious dish.
