Potatoes are so versatile! From breakfast potatoes to potato soup to meat and potatoes there is a potato recipe for everyone. Here are 37 of the best ways to make potatoes in the Instant Pot and slow cooker.
Best Ways to Make Potatoes in the Instant Pot and Slow Cooker
I don’t remember the last time I made mashed potatoes on the stove! The Instant Pot and slow cooker are the only way I make mashed potatoes these days. No boiling over. Just punch a few buttons and you’re on your way to the creamiest most delicious mashed potatoes ever. Mash the potatoes directly in the Instant Pot liner or the crock and serve.
Technically Instant Pot and slow cooker baked potatoes are not “baked” rather they are steamed. However I still love making my whole potatoes this way and serving them with butter, sour cream, salt and pepper.
Cubed potatoes with lots of seasonings are my favorite. Especially with a bit of ketchup or salsa.
Meat and Potatoes
If you’re a big fan of the hearty meat and potatoes type of dinner I have some good ideas for you! My favorite is the bacon barbecue meatloaf with the mashed potatoes. So so good!
Soup/Chowder with Potatoes
I could make and eat soups with potatoes all day long. My favorite has to be the cheeseburger soup. Don’t forget to add in some diced tomatoes and pickles with a squirt of mustard to experience the cheeseburger taste!
Whether you call them funeral potatoes, party potatoes or au gratin potatoes, potatoes and cheese are a winning combination!
One Pot Meals with Potatoes
One of my favorite things is making recipes where a carbohydrate (potato), protein (meat) and vegetable are all together in one pot. Dinner clean up is so easy! One of the best one pot meals is lemon-herbed chicken, red potatoes and baby carrots.
The best thing about making potato salad in the Instant Pot is that you can cook the potatoes and the hard boiled eggs at the same time in the same pot! I love my version of potato salad that has less mayo than a normal potato salad and a bit of olive oil instead.
