Instant Pot Potatoes Au Gratin

Ingredients:

    • 2 lbs russet or yukon gold potatoes
    • 1 tsp seasoning salt
    • ½ tsp freshly ground pepper
    • 2 Tbsp butter
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 Tbsp flour (see note)
    • ¾ cup milk
    • ¼ cup sour cream
    • 1 tsp onion powder
    • 1½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded, divided

Directions:

  1. Peel potatoes and slice into ¼” rounds.  Use a mandoline slicer (like this one) to get them uniform, or pay attention to your thickness when you cut them.  If they are different thicknesses, they will not cook evenly.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter.  Add garlic and cook 30-60 seconds until fragrant (do not brown the garlic).  Whisk in the flour and cook for several minutes, stirring constantly.  Whisk in the milk and onion powder.  Sauce should be thick.  Remove from heat and mix in the sour cream and ½ cup of cheese.
  3. In a springform pan or cake pan (see note) that will fit inside your pressure cooker, add one layer of potatoes and sprinkle with some of the salt and pepper.  Repeat until you have used half of the potatoes.  Top with half of the sauce, then sprinkle with ½ cup cheese.  Repeat with potatoes and sauce, reserving the final ½ cup of cheese.
  4. Add one cup water to the pressure cooker and add trivet.  Carefully place the pan inside the pressure cooker.  Secure the lid.
  5. Cook at high pressure for 25-28 minutes (go with 25 if your potatoes had a smaller circumference, 28 for larger), with a quick pressure release.
  6. Remove potatoes from pressure cooker, top with remaining ½ cup cheese, and broil for 3 minutes.  OR if you prefer not to turn your oven on, leave potatoes in pressure cooker, sprinkle with cheese, and let sit in warm pressure cooker for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  7. Serve warm and enjoy with your favorite Easter dish!  Check out some mouthwatering options below ⬇︎⬇︎⬇︎

Notes:

  • I use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend
  • I use a 7″ springform pan
