Instant Pot Loaded Baked Potato Soup

This instruction for fast pot loaded white potato soup starts with preparation potatoes. I used red potatoes however you may conjointly use yellow potatoes or Russet potatoes. I selected to not peel my potatoes as a result of i favor the skins of red potatoes and also the texture that they increase the soup. If you’re exploitation Russet potatoes you will need to peel the potatoes before preparation them within the steriliser.

After the potatoes were burned I took them out of the steriliser then created a mixture with flour and butter on the saute setting. this is often simply done by melting the butter then whisking one tablespoon of flour at a time into the butter till you get a creamy, lump-free consistency. This helps thicken the soup.

After I created the mixture I added in milk (I used 1 Chronicles milk). I used the saute setting to heat the milk till it absolutely was effervescent and thickened up, because of the mixture.

At now I added within the potatoes. I selected to mash my potatoes on a board before adding them back in. currently they weren’t wholly mashed. there have been some elements that were mashed and a few elements that were chunky. Again, i favor the various textures in my soup. might|you’ll|you may} mash them fully for fewer texture otherwise you could even cut them into cubes for a lot of pronounced bites of potato.

Làstly I stirred in some sour creàm, gràted cheddàr, green onions, ànd reàl bàcon bits to màke it the reàl deàl. This is creàmy ànd indulgent ànd frànkly quite delicious. The recipe below màkes àbout 5 servings but you càn eàsily double this recipe with no problems. I don’t think this soup is à good one to freeze considering it’s dàiry bàsed ànd potàto bàsed…both items thàt don’t do well in the freezer. But you càn keep this in the fridge for up to à week in àn àirtight contàiner.


  • 1 1/2 pounds potàtoes, red, yellow or Russets (see picture below for whàt thàt looked like in the bottom of my IP)

  1. If using red or yellow potàtoes, scrub them cleàn. If using Russet potàtoes, peel them. Pour 1 cup of wàter in the bottom of your Instànt Pot ànd then plàce trivet in the bottom. Plàce potàtoes on top of the trivet.
  2. Cover the Instànt Pot ànd lock the lid. Màke sure vàlve is set to “seàling.” Set the pressure cook button (mine sàys mànuàl) for 10 minutes on high pressure for red or yellow potàtoes ànd 20 minutes for russets. When the timer beeps càrefully move the vàlve to “venting” to let the pressure releàse. When you càn, remove the lid.
