Instant Pot Baked Potato Soup

I love potatoes, so I don’t know why I waited so long to make baked potato soup, especially when it’s so easy in the Instant Pot. This recipe is a combination of a few recipes I’ve used in the past.

Cut into small pieces and cook until crisp, then drain on paper towels:

6 oz. bacon (Yielding about 10 T. (5/8 c.) cooked bacon bits.)

Peel and chop:

3 lbs. potatoes

1 small onion

Put the chopped onion and potatoes in the Instant Pot with the following:

4 c. chicken broth

1/2 t. rosemary

1/8 t. white pepper

Cook at high pressure for 6 minutes, then quick release. Roughly mash the potato chunks and add all of the following, stirring until heated through:

1 1/3 c. shredded Cheddar cheese

1/4 c. cream cheese

1/4 c. sour cream

2 T. butter

the bacon bits

Season to taste with salt and pepper and garnish with sliced green onions. Serve the baked potato soup with crusty bread, such as this one.
