I am looking for a recipe on how to make crock pot sweet potatoes to go with our Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you for any answers.

Go to Google and type in crock pot recipes.
Also, it works well with Google, "crockpot recipes sweet potatoes" and recipes for sweet potatoes using crockpots come right up too.
This isn't an answer to your question, but since you don't have many, I will tell you how I do mine. The day before I plan to serve sweet potatoes, I boil them whole, with the peeling still on them. Take them out before they are too done. Put them in the fridge. The next day I peel and slice them, put them in a casserole dish with butter, brown sugar, pecans, maple syrup, salt, etc. -- pineapple whatever you like. If you don't want to add anything them, just heat in the microwave, or oven. They are already cooked.
We eat sweet potatoes often and what I do is simply put them in the crockpot and had a bit of water and they steam. You then can add seasonings etc. Last time we made them we added olive oil and spicy seasoning and kept them in thick slices - not mashed. These are so easy to make and freeze. I'll make a bunch, keep them plain and freeze. Take out the amount you want and season. You could easily do this now and save time at turkey day!
This is a family favorite..
