  • 4 large-sized russet potatoes
  • 1 cup water


  • Bacon or turkey bacon
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Butter
  • salt & pepper
  • Chives or green onions
  • sour cream


  • Prick potatoes all over with a fork. Place trivet in the bottom of the Instant Pot and add water. Add potatoes then place lid on.
  • Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 20 minutes for large potatoes, 15 minutes for medium-sized potatoes and 12 minutes for small potatoes. Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure.
  • Let the Instant Pot naturally release pressure, which should take about 15 minutes or so (wait until the pressure gauge has dropped and lid opens easily).
  • Meanwhile, prepare toppings and cook bacon. When potatoes are finished remove from the Instant Pot with a pair of tongs and then open and load 'em up! Add as many or as few toppings as desired. Serve and enjoy!
