You’ve probably heard of theInstant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.
Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!
How to make delicious, sinful scalloped potatoes with sharp cheddar cheese and the Instant Pot pressure cooker.
7 – 8 small potatoes (2lbs), peeled and sliced ¼ in thickness
1 cup vegetable broth (I make mine with Better Than Bouillon)
3 tbs heavy cream
½ tsp salt
8 oz shredded sharp white cheddar (2 oz reserved for top)
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp dried thyme
put sliced potatoes into the Instant Pot with 1 cup of vegetable broth and cook on the manual pressure cooker setting for 1 minute. (standard pressure cookers, 1 minute on HIGH).
Instant release the pressure once the timer expires.
Preheat the oven on BROIL
Transfer the potatoes from the Instant Pot to a pie plate or other oven-safe dish leaving any cooking liquids in the Instant Pot. *There will not be a lot of liquid in there, but what does remain should be enough.
Add the remaining ingredients (reserving 2 oz of cheese) to the Instant Pot and set to “Saute” and stir until smooth.
Pour the cheese sauce over the potatoes in the dish and toss to evenly distribute the cheese sauce.
Top with reserved cheese.
Broil in the oven for 4 – 6 minutes until the top of the potatoes are bubbly and browned.
