Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes is my recipe of the day with the From Our Dinner Table blogging group. Each week  the topic changes and bloggers will post their freshest tastiest recipes for those.

This week  it’s  all about  potatoes.

I am  always digging having roasted sweet potatoes, especially with a bbq.  That  generally takes me 20-30 minutes to heat the oven  plus another  75 to roast. But. With the Instant Pot I can get  that one out the door in half the time. All without heating up my kitchen

It’s still hot here. And my hat is off to California with  all the heat  there. Yeesh.

This recipe will work for however  many sweets you can comfortably fit in your cooker. I  will  generally cook a few extra because they reheat well.  Plus I can put  the mash into something like biscuits or bread. Diced sweets even  make a fantastic salad topping. There are so  many things you can  do.

  1. I have never cooked potatoes in a pressure cooker. Shocking I know! I have family that live in upper elevations and it is the only way they can cook them, but I’ve never thought about it. Until now! 😉
