If one of the dishes you crave most at Thanksgiving is rich and buttery sweet potatoes spiced with cinnamon and vanilla and piled with gooey melted marshmallow—this recipe is for you. Seriously, it’s the tried-and-true casserole, except in one way. This version is smarter, faster and therefore a better recipe when you’re short on oven space and time, i.e., on Thanksgiving. Here’s why: The whole dish is made in a single pot—your Instant Pot™—from cooking the potatoes to the final step of melting the marshmallows. Potatoes cooked under pressure practically fall out of their skins, so the most time-consuming step is super snappy. The rest of the casserole comes together without much more than a bit of stirring. And perhaps best of all, your casserole can be left inside the pot until you’re ready to serve, so it’ll arrive at the table piping hot. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Cutting the sweet potatoes in half helps fit even the most strangely-shaped taters nicely in the Instant Pot™. Plus, the peels will slide right off after steaming.
