  1. Place sweet potatoes in the slow cooker and add water to cover.
  2. Cook on High until potatoes are tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  3. Place potatoes in a colander until well drained, then return to the slow cooker. Add butter, milk, sage, salt, and pepper. Mash with a potato masher until potatoes are smooth/


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For additional richness, feel free to sub half-and-half or heavy cream for the milk. Slow cooker temperatures vary, so check occasionally for doneness. I use the slow cook function on my Instant Pot®, and they're done in about 1 hour 15 minutes.
  • This is a basic sweet potato recipe, but if your taste preference leans toward sweet and spicy, feel free to add those spices, maple syrup, and maybe even top with some chopped pecans.
