Instant Pot Party Potatoes
The most satisfying sound is digging the serving spoon deep into these potatoes through the crunchy crust. And the second most satisfying sound is the mmmmm’s you’ll hear from everyone who eats these potatoes. Party potatoes are just that…a party in your mouth. And they are great to bring to any party, family dinner or potluck.
You’ll peel and cube the potatoes and then pressure cook them in a steamer basket*. The steamer basket keeps the potatoes out of the boiling water and prevents them from getting grainy. You’ll only need a short 4 minute pressure cook time for the cubed potatoes.
After the potatoes are cooked you’ll whisk up a cream cheese, sour cream, butter and milk sauce and then coat the potatoes in the sauce. Add in a few seasonings (including flavorful smoked paprika) and toss well. The potatoes will be a cross between cubed potatoes and mashed potatoes.
Finally you’ll sprinkle cheese and panko breadcrumbs on top and use an air fryer lid* to melt the cheese and toast the breadcrumbs. If you don’t have an air fryer lid you can spread the potatoes in a baking dish and top with the cheese and panko and bake for a few minutes in the oven until the top is crispy.
Plan to use this potato dish recipe next time you are feeding a crowd! I think you’ll agree that they are really a party in your mouth and tummy!
