Instant Pot Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes

And it'll be a hit every time you serve it.


  • 2 lb red potatoes, scrubbed
  • 3 bacon strips
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup Ranch dressing


  • Cut the potatoes into about 1-inch pieces.
  • Cut the bacon into small pieces.
  • Set the Instant Pot to “Sauté” and add bacon. Cook until nice and crisp. (
    If you have too much stuff stuck on the bottom of the pot, add 1/4 cup of water and scrape it to deglaze the bottom.)
  • Stir in potatoes, dried parsley, garlic powder and salt.
  • Add 1/3 cup of water. (If you have 8qt Instant Pot, add 1/2 cup of water.)
  • Set the Instant Pot to Manual for 7 minutes at high pressure. (NOTE: It took about 12 minutes for my Instant Pot to come to pressure.)
  • Do quick release the pressure and carefully open the lid.
  • Add ranch dressing and cheese and stir to combine. Serve immediately.If you tried this recipe, I'd love to read your feedback.
