"Thanksgiving is not the same without the sweet potato casserole. What's even better is that using a slow cooker will free up space on your stove top and oven. The recipe called for a 3 quart slow cooker but I think a larger size would work if keeping an eye on the sweet potatoes and adding a bit more orange juice if needed."

Yummy potatoes. I'm the only one in my family that likes sweet potatoes (their loss!) so only made a small amount of these. I loved them and will definitely make them again. Thanks for sharing, Lori.
