Parties, holidays, gatherings, pot luck dinners and sports parties all require food. The hardest part of any gathering is deciding on a food to serve right? I like a dish that offers substance and heft and that can be converted into a vegetarian dish if need be! After all, I am that vegetarian, but totally outnumbered by those who are not! Whatever I make can be made 2 ways!
Serving up great eats during the holidays is what parties are all about. I prefer to always have that go-to dish that matches up with any entree being served, that is a great side and offers up something that is reminiscent of a comfort food. Prepare the recipe in an Instant Pot or any Electric Pressure cooker, the recipe is convertible and applicable to any of these appliances.
Easy food prep is what life is about and if I can cook it you can totally recreate it. The ingredients for this Pressure Cooker Cheesy Bacon Potatoes are fresh, readily available and perfect for mixing up. Get ready to dish up a great side plate that is sure to satisfy with minimal effort and delivering big on taste. Lavishly live food out loud and make sure to print the pressure cooker cheesy bacon potatoes recipe.

5 Strips of bacon (use pre-cooked) microwave and chopped
1 5.2 z Boursin Cheese (chive & onion) Optional (cream cheese instead)
1 ½ C Mexi-cheese mix
1 tsp Mediterranean Salt
¼ C Water
1 tsp Pepper
8 C Red Potatoes (cleaned, cubed)
2 Tbsp. Canola Oil
Slice Boursin Cheese into 8 cubes so that it will mix in easily. I do this to cut the cooking time down and to make it easier to melt. Really you don’t have to, but I do this in most recipes. The smaller parts allow the process to happen faster, and I am all about fast! (set this aside)
It’s time to prep the pressure cooker liner. Turn Pressure Cooker to Sauté mode. Add oil, and potatoes salt, pepper and stir. The process will allow the potatoes to cook a bit, and then you will mix things up. So, allow mixture to lightly cook potatoes, about 7 minutes’ total, mixing regularly.
Next, add in Boursin Cheese cubes and the Cheddar/Mexi Cheese mix. Now add in the bacon, mix really well and turn off Sauté. So far so easy right? Trust me, it’s not getting any harder from this point. In fact you will be able to do something else in just a few seconds (like shove all stuff laying around in closets, lol!)
Put lid on pressure cooker, lock and choose Rice Setting. Program to 16 minutes. Once cooking cycle ends, allow pressure to naturally release. Do note that if you choose to immediately release pressure, cover the gauge so nothing ‘spits’ and release pressure.
The final touch happens just when it is time to serve the yummy potatoes. Garnish with fresh cut chives & plate, serving warm.
