Brought this recipe to a family Thanksgiving Dinner. Couldn't get more compliments. I did not have on hand apple pie filling. See recipe "#130444" and my review. Worked out the best. Thanks ratherbe!
Excellent, just excellent... and very tasty with ham! Followed the recipe except I left out the raisins and omitted the nutty topping. Have family members who are picky eaters...
Made first thing in the morning, cooked on HIGH for 2 hrs, then turned to LOW... perfect! Looking forward to the leftovers. Most likely will make half-recipes in the future when it's just me... but will definitely keep this on the list of holiday menu favorites.
Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it for the first time 3 years ago and now my family BEGS for it during the holidays. This is the BEST sweet potato recipe.
YUMMY! I was looking for a different, easy and not overly sweet way to fix sweet potatoes that didn't require baking; I made this in the Crockpot while the oven was tied up to roast a large turkey. I had to turn my slow cooker up to High for a couple of hours to get them done in the time specified, otherwise didn't I make any changes to NurseDi's recipe. My husband and I both liked these very well, and even my picky child ate a portion. The candied nuts really added a nice, tasty crunch to the soft texture of the dish. This would be a great potuck dish.
So good, and so easy! Made for Christmas dinner where they were devoured! Thanks!
This was fabulous! I used two cans of apple pie filling, a whole bunch of sweet potatoes, and a cup of raisins - I probably didn't quite double it, but I was trying to make a lot for a crowd. Brought it to a potluck for lunch, and the crockpot is now empty! The caramelized pecans were fantastic, and added a nice crunch and flavor to the dish. I've had three people ask me for the recipe. This one is a keeper for sure. Thanks, NurseDi!
WOW!! We used sugar free apple pie filling, Splenda, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Wonderful! Thank you for the recipe.
This is a great recipe! I always take sweet potatoes to our Thanksgiving potluck and I have yet to repeat a recipe; I think this one will be the exception. I made it as written the weekend before TDay, then tweaked it for the big day (slices instead of chunks, double the pie filling, double the apple pie spice, melted the butter, 1C raisins, cooked on high). It was great both times. The use of apple pie filling is ingenious. Be sure not to skip the pecans. Thanks!
Once again, you've posted a fantastic recipe! My entire family enjoyed these sweet potatoes. The only change I made was to cook the dish in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 min. as time didn't permit cooking in the crockpot. I really like the addition of the buttered/sugared pecans...much better than just topping with plain pecans. Thanks for sharing this.
Once again, another great recipe! Made this at Christmas, and brother-in-law who is a VERY picky eater, took some home with him! I love using the crock pot, and this is an excellent dish for it! Didn't change a thing.
