Instant Pot Whole Potatoes (Sweet or White!)

One of my favorite things about the Instant Pot is how it takes tasks that generally require a good deal of time and heating your entire oven and it turns them into quick, simple results with zero babysitting. Sweet potatoes and baked potatoes are a great example.

It has never been easier to make perfectly tender and moist whole potatoes. Simply place the rack inside the pot, add 1 cup of water and your whole, washed spuds. Set to MANUAL for 15 minutes and allow for the pressure to release naturally. If your potatoes are rather small or happen to be monstrous, you may need to adjust the time slightly, but 15 minutes seems to work well for me with moderate sized potatoes.

Once finished you can serve them up however you like! Some of our favorites include stuffing them with Pulled Pork, BBQ Chicken, or Buffalo Chicken. I’ll be sharing these recipes soon! I also use this method to cook sweet potatoes that I am going to use in the dogs’ food or mash for other meals as well. Once cooled, they peel easily and makes quick work of an otherwise time consuming project!
