Ingredients

  • 2lbs sweet potatoes
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Slice each sweet potato length-wise. No need to peel them.
  • Pour water into the bottom of the Instant Pot and place the trivet inside.
  • Pile your sweet potatoes on top of the trivet.
  • Secure the lid.
  • Turn the valve to SEALING.
  • Cook on HIGH PRESSURE for 15 minutes.
  • Press CANCEL.
  • Naturally release the pressure, do not quick-release (it will take about 15 minutes).
  • Once pressure is released, remove the lid and the sweet potatoes.
  • The insides will easily fall out of the skins. Take the insides of each potato and place them into a mixing bowl.
  • Add your brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon and mash. Your potatoes will be tender enough to mash with a fork.
  • Sprinkle with extra cinnamon on top and enjoy!
