Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Instant Pot Giveaway!!!
When I was in the third grade we moved out to the country. My folks bought a little house with a couple of acres, a barn and one of the first things Dad did was put in a garden. He tilled up the soil and put us kids to work.
Dad, Mom, Don and I planted corn, radishes, squash, onions and little hills of potatoes. Planted on what was formerly a chicken coop, the garden flourished!
Our “little” garden produced about 500 pounds of potatoes! Apparently tilling up the soil where the chickens used to peck and scratch turned out to be some of the most fertile ground in Oregon.
Luckily… I still love potatoes!
Now I have yet one more way to enjoy a great baked potato! What used to take you hours in the oven is now ready in just minutes. No more burn-the-roof-of-your-mouth microwave potatoes that are rock hard in the middle either. Pressure cooker baked potatoes is totally the way to go!
Instant Pot Baked Potatoes
Tips for cooking potatoes in the Instant Pot
- Scrub the potatoes well before adding them to the pressure cooker.
- Prick the outside of the potatoes several times with a fork or knife to keep them from bursting.
- Do not allow the potatoes to sit in the water. Set a trivet or stainless steel steamer basket in the pressure cooker or Instant Pot before adding the potatoes.
How long do you pressure cook baked potatoes?
- small potatoes 6 minutes (baby or small potatoes)
- medium sized potatoes 10 minutes (4-5 inches long)
- large potatoes 12 minutes (usually sold individually these will be very large potatoes)
Natural pressure release at the end.
What can I use as a trivet or steam tray in a pressure cooker?
You can certainly use the trivet that comes with the Instant Pot when you purchase it however the potatoes cannot be sitting in water. I use a stainless steel vegetable steamer. It lifts the potatoes off the bottom well and works perfectly.
How do you cook potatoes in a pressure cooker?
- scrub and clean the potatoes well.
- place the steam basket in the pressure cooker
