HOW LONG DO I COOK BAKED POTATOES IN THE INSTANT POT?

Seal the instant pot.  Choose the high pressure cook option on the instant pot and select from 14-16 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes (if your potatoes are larger than you’ll want to use the longer time).

After the cook time is done, allow the pressure to release naturally from the instant pot.

Remove the perfectly baked potatoes from instant pot (carefully as they will be hot).  Top with salt and pepper and all of your favoriting toppings and enjoy!

I love the crispy skins and tender inside. Yum!

Topping ideas:

Also, have you ever had a baked potato bar? This is the perfect way to turn a baked potato into a main meal! Such a great idea and very frugal for a crowd.

We like to chop up steak or grilled chicken and top the potatoes with it. Add in cheese, chives, bacon bits, sour cream and more! Such a fantastic meal idea!

We have used this idea for birthday parties or celebrations for a crowd. It really stretches the meat and makes it so frugal.

Make sure you have a good pressure cooker to make instant pot baked potatoes.

I am using an 8 quart Instant pot but you can use a 6 quart. I personally have an Instant Pot and so far I am loving it.

You can find the Instant pot on sale here.  It’s really changed dinner time around here.

Also, the instant pot comes with a trivet but if you misplaced it, you can get another one here.

If you have been putting off trying an instant pot, I highly recommend going ahead and biting the bullet. I love using the pressure cooker when I don’t have much time.

It is perfect for frozen food or meals that normally take a while. You can toss everything in and have dinner ready in no time at all.

Those days when you forget to take something out of the freezer or wait until the last minute for dinner, the instant pot is your saving grace.

I am not exaggerating when I say it truly has changed meal time around here. We love ours and it makes soup recipes even easier.

You can also these Instant Pot Accessories to make pressure cooking a breeze. We just love to pressure cook and  I am certain you will too.

Dinner time is much easier and less complicated now that I have the pressure cooker. If you are hesitant or on the fence, don’t be. You will love it!

Now you will need an electric pressure cooker for this recipe. I personally have an Instant Pot and so far I am loving it.  You can find the Instant pot on sale here.

I seriously do love it. However, there are other great electric pressure cookers that will work great for this recipe too. You can find them all on sale here.

  8. Loving baked potatoes right now and it’s just easier to go to Wendy’s (love their bacon cheese potatoes) and pay $5 for one and now all I gotta do is throw some taters in the IP and fix ’em how I want. Thanks for saving me money one tater at a time! Lol!
