INSTANT POT SWEET POTATOES
Sweet potatoes are a holiday favorite, but they’re so much more versatile than that. While we love the mashed sweet potatoes (and I often use my slow cooker for that), I am really loving my Instant Pot for “baking” them right now!
In the Instant Pot, they’re just so easy to make. They’re done in minutes and come out perfect!
HOW CAN I USE INSTANT POT SWEET POTATOES?
We love eating them just as I’ve indicated in the recipe below, but there are so many other great things you can do. You can add “all the fixings” to make a meal out of loaded sweet potatoes, or you can make sweet potato skins or twice-baked sweet potatoes. You can also use the flesh for things like sweet potato pie!
The possibilities are almost endless. Get creative and have fun – sweet potatoes are so easy and quick to cook in the Instant Pot that you can do just about anything you want!
WILL INSTANT POT SWEET POTATOES DRY OUT WHILE COOKING?
It’s pretty common to cook sweet potatoes in the microwave, since they’re done in just a few minutes. While this is convenient, it also tends to really dry them out, even when you wrap them in a damp paper towel. That’s just not very appetizing!
When you cook sweet potatoes in the Instant Pot, you don’t have to worry about this. They’re done in minutes and they’re deliciously moist and fluffy! You really can’t get any better than that!
WILL INSTANT POT SWEET POTATOES FREEZE WELL?
Unlike regular potatoes, you actually can freeze sweet potatoes. This works well if you have a bunch of them that you want to cook and save for later! Once they’re done cooking in the Instant Pot, just wrap them tightly in foil and freeze.
I wouldn’t freeze them for any more than a few weeks, but this can be a great time saver!
