Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot Sweet Potato Casserole is going to be your winning side dish this week. The perfect side dish to pair anytime, don’t box it into the holiday season. Creamy and tender sweet potatoes topped with brown sugar and marshmallows. No matter when you make this sweet potato casserole, it is sure to be a treat. 

 I love to pair this with the most delicious Ninja Foodi Rotisserie Chicken. Add a salad and you have a complete meal done in no time. It is something different than a classic side of green beans or a can of corn. It helps keep my family interested in eating the meals I put before them. Plus who doesn’t love a sweet potato casserole? 

Easy Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot Sweet Potato Casserole 

The reason I reach for my Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot is a multitude of reasons. One, the process is easy, and there is less cleanup in the end. Two, it saves room on the stove for other items I am cooking. And lastly, it doesn’t heat my house up the way the oven would. I also want to add the cook time is less than the traditional baking, so add that to the list. 

The Ninja Foodi has the Instant Pot features so it works just like the Instant Pot. You could even transition over to the crisping lid to toast up the marshmallows on top until they are golden brown. I love when they have a slight crunch when you bite into them! 

Your whole house will smell outstanding once you serve this up. Best of all the leftovers taste great reheated, and you can pair with other meals during the week like ham or even a chicken dish. 

Is A Sweet Potato A Super Food 

Sweet potatoes are loaded with nutrients. They have been known to help with blood sugar, offer immune-boosting benefits, fight off disease, and they are loaded with vitamins and minerals. That is why many call these orange beauties a superfood that should be added to your diet when you can. 

Should Sweet Potatoes Be Peeled 

The skins of sweet potatoes are edible, and you can leave them on if you like. For a sweet potato casserole, I peel them so you have a creamy texture. If you don’t peel your potatoes, it will give you a fibrous texture throughout your casserole which might not taste the best. 

Give my recipe a try whether it be in your Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot. Save space on that stove and skip the extra steps and use your pot instead. I think you all will really enjoy this side dish.
