Instant Pot Sweet Potato Mash

We had a sweet potato dish at a bistro recently and it blew me away.  I knew it was simple but very good.

Here’s our attempt at recreation and it’s pretty close.

Instant Pot Sweet Potato Mash

  • 1 ea Sweet Potato
  • 1 T butter
  • 1/4 c Heavy Cream or Whipping Cream

  1. Do not substitute Yams for the Sweet Potatoes. Scale recipe for your needs
  2. Cut sweet potato in half length wise. Put trivet or steamer in your Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. Put potatoes face down on trivet. Close lock and cook for 18 minutes. Let it do a natural release.
  3. Skins should pull right off. Mash the potatoes and mash the rest of the ingredients into it. We tried a stick blender and got a gluey consistently. Use a fork.
