Press the “Manual” button and adjust the time to “5” minutes using the + or – button.

When the pot beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and remove the casserole from the pressure cooker.

I have made this casserole several times this past week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner….it’s that good!!

Recipe Notes & Tips:

{Contains affiliate links}

  • The eggs are thoroughly cooked, but there is moisture/liquid in the baking dish. For drier eggs, place a spatula on the center of the casserole and tilt the pan over the sink to remove the liquid.
  • I have used this 7-cup glass baking dish and a Metal Baking Pan. The casserole stuck to the bottom of the metal pan, but not the glass dish…so I will continue to use the glass dish!
  • These Retriever Tongs are awesome and make it much easier to get the pan in and out of the pressure cooker, and to tilt the hot pan to remove the liquid!!
  • I used white sweet potatoes, those are not regular potatoes. If you wish to substitute russet potatoes, make sure you drain as much liquid as possible before adding them to the pot. They contain more moisture than sweet potatoes.
