Instant Pot Potato Soup

This Instant Pot Potato Soup is the perfect meal for a cold day. It is so easy to make and comes together in minutes. If you have never used your Instant Pot, this is a good recipe to start with. It is simple, delicious, and our new favorite comfort food.

At the start of last week, we asked all of you on Instagram what you wanted to see more of in 2018, and one thing that you repeatedly asked for were more Instant Pot recipes.

While we do have a few (that you can see HERE), we are going to work on getting more available to you as we test out our own. This recipe is super simple and great for the colder days ahead.

If you have an instant pot, but have been too afraid to bust it out of it’s packaging and give it a test run, this is a great one to start with.

If you haven’t made the dive and purchased one yet, it’s a great investment. We recommend THIS ONE (I used that exact one in the 6-quart size, to make this soup).

how to make instant pot potato soup

Step 1: In a 6-quart instant pot (or pressure cooker), place potatoes, onion, chicken broth, garlic powder, seasoned salt, pepper, and parsley.

Step 2: Lock lid, make sure vent is closed.

Step 3: Using the manual setting, on high pressure, set time for 15 minutes. When finished cooking, quick-release pressure.

Step 4: In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup flour and 1/2 cup cream until smooth.

Step 5: Switch the setting on your Instant Pot to saute, and adjust the heat to low, then mix in flour and cream mixture.

Step 6: Stir in 3/4 cup cheese, bacon, and remaining cream. Stir for 6-8 minutes until the soup starts to thicken.

Step 7: Scoop a little more than 1 cup of soup into a bowl. Top each individual serving of soup, with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and sprinkle of fresh parsley.

how would I make this in a slow cooker?

Step 1: In your slow cooker, add your potatoes, onion, chicken broth, garlic powder, seasoned salt, pepper, and parsley.

Step 2: Let the ingredients cook for 4 hours on low.

Step 3: After 4 hours, add your flour and cream and whisk until smooth.

Step 4: Stir in 3/4 cup cheese, bacon, and remaining cream. Stir for 6-8 minutes until the soup starts to thicken.

Step 5: Top each individual serving of soup with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and sprinkle of fresh parsley.

    I made this tonight and my family loved it! This was the first time using my Insta pot. It was so easy! I only had about 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream so I used evaporated can milk with the cream and it was delicious! I will definitely be making again. I'm looking forward to other recipes you come up with for the Insta pot.
    • You could adapt this for a slow cooker. Add the first 7 ingredients and cook in slow cooker until potatoes are tender. That might be a few hours on high or even longer on low temp. Combine the flour and whipping cream and add that to the soup until it starts to thicken. Then add the remaining ingredients.

    I made this tonight for dinner and it was awesome! I sautéed the bacon in the pot first, then spooned out the bacon bits and left the bacon grease in to add flavor to the soup. Delicious! I also only had 1 cup of heavy cream so I used whole milk for the other cup. It definitely took longer than the mentioned prep and cook time, probably 5 minutes to prep bacon, 20 minutes sauté (with cooking bacon while prepping other veggies and then at the end) and then 37 minutes with pressurizing and cooking so about an hour total. But this was the first time using my Instant Pot and it was definitely a success!!
