Recipe: Slow-Cooker Sweet Potatoes with Bacon

We all know that a Southern holiday isn't complete without sweet potatoes on the table. This recipe is a pleasant, flavorful alternative to the marshmallow-topped sweet-potato-and-pecan casserole (although if you had both, we certainly wouldn't judge!). There's no need to take up valuable stove space on the day of your Thanksgiving dinner; these Slow-Cooker Sweet Potatoes with Bacon come out soft, flavorful, and ready to serve. Pop this sweet potato mixture into your slow cooker the morning of your big feast, and let the Crock-Pot do the work. Orange juice gives the dish some tangy sweetness, crumbled bacon brings salt and savory, and rosemary brings a fragrant aroma. These flavors gradually infuse into your potatoes over the course of a few hours. When you're ready to serve, sprinkle with parsley, orange zest, and garlic. This satisfying Thanksgiving side will be your new go-to sweet potato recipe.
