Servings: 6


  • Pressure Cooker / Instant Pot


  • 3 lbs baby potatoes
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 7 bacon cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 green onions chopped


  • 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.
  • Add water.
  • 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 ½ cup of cheese.
  • Add sour cream, cooked bacon and gently fold/mix until everything is well coated (until sauce has become uniform and consistent).
  • Top with chopped green onions.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
