Instant Pot Loaded Baked Potato Bites

Soft warm creamy fully loaded baked potato bites are a simple and delicious side that is extremely filling and rewarding to eat. I crafted this dish the way we prefer our sides with our BBQ Ribs. This recipe is one of our preferred sides for our BBQ ribs. My husband loves his covered in extra bacon but you can tailor this recipe to settle your hunger and your cravings this cooking season. Potatoes like this are great covered in a nice chili (bean-less) or as a side for your next eatfoodlicious meal.

Baby potatoes

Bacon & cheese

Cut the bacon into 1″ pieces (the thicker the bacon the better).

Clean, scrub & rinse the baby potatoes.

Slice the potatoes in half.

Set to sauté high. Add cut bacon and cook for 7-10 minutes or until crispy. Transfer the bacon bits and place them on a paper towel (to remove excess oil). Set aside until ready to cook. Drain the bacon grease from the IP.

Add baby potatoes, salt, pepper, paprika, onion & garlic to the cooker. Mix everything together. Place the lid on. Pressure cook on high for 8 minutes and do a quick release (exercise caution when releasing pressure from the cooker). Follow the manufacture instructions for releasing the pressure. Remove the lid. 

Add 1 cup of shredded cheese and gently fold/mix until the cheese has melted (recommend using a wooden spoon).

Repeat with the remaining cup of cheese.

Mix

Add sour cream & cooked bacon.

Gently fold/mix until everything is well coated (until sauce has become uniform and consistent).

Transfer to a plate/bowl. Top with chopped green onions.

Serve & Enjoy!
