It’s an Instant Pot Easter Recipes Blog Hop. I’m sharing my recipe for some delicious Instant Pot Scalloped Potatoes.
I’ve teamed up with a talented group of food bloggers to give you so many great Instant Pot Easter recipes!!
Using your Instant Pot is not only perfect for quick and easy weeknight cooking but it is perfect for the holidays too. While your oven is busy use your Instant Pot for some of your other menu items. This year I’m thinking of doing my ham in the crockpot and my potatoes in the Instant Pot. The possibilities are endless!
These Instant Pot Scalloped Potatoes are the perfect recipe for Easter or anytime and they work great in the Instant Pot. If your family is like my family, scalloped potatoes are required for Easter dinner. Can you really eat ham without scalloped potatoes??
The trick to cooking scalloped potatoes in the Instant Pot is using a smaller pan inside the instant pot. I used a 7 inch x 3 inch cake pan and it fit perfectly. Just place it on the rack that comes inside the Instant Pot along with 1 1/2 cups of water in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
The sliced potatoes are layered with seasoning, bacon and cheese in the cake pan and then half and half is poured over the top. Just add a final layer of cheese before putting them in the Instant Pot.
The cook time will vary depending on how thin you slice your potatoes but I like mine about 1/4″ thick and we don’t like our potatoes too soft and smooshie. I cooked them for 25 minutes but if you like your potatoes softer cook for another 5 minutes. Be sure to save some crispy bacon to garnish the top of the potatoes with along with some green onion and grated Parmesan cheese.
Sometimes I’ll pop them under the broiler for a minute or so to get the cheese a little crispy and brown on top but sometimes I don’t.
These Instant Pot Scalloped Potatoes go perfectly with Easter ham but work with all kinds of things. I especially like them with pork tenderloin. And my husband has been known to eat them as meal in and of themselves!
Some of my favorite pork recipes to serve the scalloped potatoes with are:
