Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Ham & Sweet Potatoes

With just 4 ingredients, dinner doesn’t get much easier or tastier than this.
Skinny on Slow Cooker Ham and Sweet Potatoes
When I first presented this slow cooker ham and sweet potatoes dinner to Rod, he said it sounded strange.
Then I reminded him that ham is often served with a pineapple glaze and sweet potatoes are often a yummy accompaniment.
All I did was combine the ingredients into an easy one pot meal.
It was delicious.
Roasted brussels sprouts made a nice accompaniment.
After his initial skepticism, Rod had two servings!
Any tropical flavored jam would work well here. I used St. Dalfour’s Pineapple Mango.
According to my calculations each serving has 382 calories, *10 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *9 SmartPoints.
This slow cooker skinny ham with sweet potatoes is most definitely a Do-Over.
Slow Cooker Ham & Sweet Potatoes Recipe Variations
no ham – cooked chicken or turkey sausage would work well as a substitute.
no pineapple jam – substitute with any jam/jelly/fruit puree you think would work. Orange marmalade, apple jelly, pepper jelly for a little kick. I also think applesauce would work with fewer calories/points.
no pineapple – a chopped apple or two would be nice
