I didn’t always like sweet potatoes. It wasn’t until I went Keto a couple years ago that I started experimenting a little with them. You see, I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I don’t think a meal is complete without a meat, a starch, and a vegetable- bonus points for bread too.
Of course when you’re on Keto, carbs are out of the question. Luckily, I wasn’t too hard-core so I gave myself a little wiggle room and tested some recipes for sweet potatoes when I had that hankering for a good starchy potato. If I hadn’t, then this Pressure Cooker Sweet Potatoes and Sausage recipe would have never been created.
Even if you aren’t a huge fan of sweet potatoes, I promise you’ll like this recipe! It’s packed with flavor and a great sweet-spicy combo of flavors that will have you always wanting more!

My love for sausage goes beyond just a piece of grilled meat. I love all kinds of sausage; beef, pork, chicken, smoked, grilled, bbq, hot, mild, Italian. The list could go on and on. For this recipe, you’ll just need a simple sausage that doesn’t pack too much heat because we’re gonna add the spice we need.
There are a few extra steps to this recipe, like browning our sausage and sweating our onions that I recommend you DO NOT skip out on. Each step adds another layer of flavor and depth that this pressure cooker sweet potatoes and sausage recipe needs to taste as amazing as it looks.
A little tip: I seriously can’t get enough of this recipe! It’s a little too spicy for my kid’s little taste buds, so if you want it to be more family-friendly, I suggest cutting back some of the cayenne/pepper. Don’t omit it completely, but maybe half it!

These are the flavors of fall! You can also use maple syrup as a sweetener, maybe even add an apple or two.
This was a very good recipe. I had white sweet potatoes from the garden and also the regular orange ones. I steamed green beans on top. Very good. I will make this again. And I don’t even like sweet potatoes.
It was easy to make and tasted delicious. Thank you! We will be making it again!
Oh my!!! I made this last week with a few of tweaks. First, I sautéed a couple strips of diced bacon until crispy. I added mild Italian sausage (didn’t have any spicier sausage in my freezer) then the onion. Secondly, I didn’t add any of the sugar or honey as my husband is diabetic but used a bit more of the spices and a touch of nutmeg. Seriously yummy and super easy, this recipe is a keeper!
I was interested in trying this, but when I saw it has 3/4 c sugar in it, I think I will pass! That’s a lot of sugar for a main dish meal that would probably taste fine without it, especially when I never add sugar to my sweet potatoes.
Sandy, the sugar is a preference. You can most definitely make this recipe without it, but I do suggest the honey. A little extra sweetness to offset the spice of the cayenne will do wonders!
