I was actually thinking of just throwing cubes/chunks into a soup or stew. If I were doing them in a slow cooker (which I've never done), I think I'd chunk them, add a little water/broth to the bottom (maybe 1 cup), and sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top. I've got some sweet potatoes in the fridge. When my son gets home in a day or two I'll cook them like that and let you know how it goes!
Hey, welcome to crockpot cooking! I love my crock for "ready made" meals at the end of a long day. To stretch a soup or stew, add a ton of veggies--whatever's in season. Around here, carrots are always cheap. Will your family eat sweet potatoes (yams)? They are reasonably cheap, very healthy and really filling. I look forward to trading recipes with you!

Hi, I live in FL (and NO it's not warm here LOL) and have a large family and a small wallet. I am looking for crock pot recipes that are not only healthy but filling! Sometimes there's just not enough on the table to satisfy tummy's and I really hate resorting to bread.
I'll be spending some time here just reading but if anyone has ideas please do not hesitate to post or sparkmail me. I'd love to meet you all. Thanks so much.
