We did use an immersion blender to make this soup smooth, but if you don’t have an immersion blender, you can just use an electric hand mixer and it will get the job done! The immersion blender just speeds the process up a bit.

Let’s cook this bacon tomato bisque in the Instant Pot:
To start place the butter, minced onions, carrots, celery and garlic into the Instant Pot and press the saute button on the Instant Pot. Saute for about 7 minutes or until the carrots and celery are soft and the onions are almost translucent.
Once they have reached translucency, add the tomatoes to the Instant Pot.
Next, add half of the cream and store. Then, pour in the chicken broth along with the Old Bay seasoning, oregano, parsley, freshly ground black pepper, and paprika.
Again, mix everything together well.
Cook the bisque mixture in the instant pot for about 7-10 minutes. While it pressurizes, cook the bacon according to your preference.
I prefer mine baked in the oven, because it makes the bacon crunchy. If you like your chewy, you want want to cook it in a pan or on a griddle, to keep a closer eye on it.
Once the bacon is cooked, tear or chop it into small pieces.
Once the soup has completed it’s cooking time, you will want to let it vent or naturally release.
After the Instant Pot has come to full pressure and has completed the cook cycle, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release the pressure, rather than doing a quick release.
Now that the pressure has been released from the Instant Pot, remove the lid. You can use an immersion blender, but I also like to use my real blender as well. It works great. I like mine with a few little chunks and not completely purred, but you can blend to your preference.
One side that I LOVE to have with this bisque is cheddar bay biscuits! If you are up for making your own while the soup is pressurizing in the Instant Pot, take a look at this wonderful cheddar bay biscuits from Allrecipes.com.
