  • Wash sweet potatoes and cut in half width-wise. Place in an 8-quart slow cooker with 1/2 inch water in the bottom (about 1 cup or so). Cutting the sweet potatoes in half means less cooking time, but you can keep them whole and cook them a bit longer to avoid dark spots from oxidation in your sweet potatoes.
  • Cook on high for about 2-1/2 hours (longer if left whole) or until the sweet potatoes are tender and softened.
  • Remove the sweet potatoes from the slow cooker and remove the peel. The skin should come off easily.
  • Place the cooked and peeled sweet potatoes in a large bowl with the other ingredients and using a hand mixer, blend the sweet potatoes until everything is mixed well and there are no lumps.
  • Serve immediately or return to the slow cooker on low setting to keep warm until your other dishes are finished cooking.
  • Enjoy!


If you can't find garlic egg-free mayo, you can use regular egg-free may and add some garlic powder
