  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


Cubed potatoes enveloped in a cheesy sauce with bacon. A magical potato experience that takes only minutes to make in your pressure cooker!



Equipment needed: steamer basket*

  • 4 medium russet potatoes (2 pounds), peeled and cubed
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 3 cups milk (or half and half or evaporated milk)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp dried dill
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup loosely packed bacon crumbles


  1. Pour 1 ½ cups water into Instant Pot. Place potatoes in a steamer basket and lower into the Instant Pot.
  2. Cover and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 4 minutes for potatoes with bite or 5 minutes for softer potatoes. When time is up let pot sit for 5-10 minutes and then move valve to venting to release pressure. Remove the lid when able.
  3. Move steamer basket out of Instant Pot and set aside. Discard the water in the Instant Pot and dry out the liner.
  4. Turn Instant Pot to sauté setting (NORMAL). Add in the butter and let it melt. When it is melted whisk in the flour, a tablespoon at a time. When it is free of any lumps whisk in a cup of milk.  Let it thicken and start to bubble, then whisk in the remaining milk. Let the mixture thicken and come to a boil. 
  5. Turn off Instant Pot and stir in salt, dill, pepper, cheeses and bacon. Once cheese is melted fold in the potatoes. 
  6. Serve and enjoy.
