This would be a great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner or any other large gathering where your oven will be otherwise occupied. I love that each of the ingredients embrace the best of this fall season.

Orange Sage Crockpot Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 an orange
  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 slices of bacon, fried crispy and crumbled
  • 3 fresh sage leaves
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper

Layer the sweet potatoes and bacon in the crockpot. Combine the juice, brown sugar, sage, salt and pepper. Pour over the potatoes. Dot the butter over the potatoes. Cook on high for 2 hours or until potatoes are tender. Serves 4.
