Tools for Instant Pot Twice Baked Potatoes

*Note: You can make this Instant Pot Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe with any Instant Pot or Pressure Cookers. 🙂

1

Crisp Bacon


First thing first! Crisp up the bacon in your air fryer, Instant Pot, or oven.

*Option 1 – Duo Crisp Method: We are crisping bacon with the “Air Fryer” function of Instant Pot Duo Crisp.

First, install the broiling tray on the Air Fryer Basket.

Then, layer 6 slices of bacon on top of the broiling tray.

Now, pour 1 cup of cold water and place the air fryer basket in your Instant Pot Duo Crisp.

Then, place the air fryer lid on the Instant Pot Duo Crisp.

  • Air Frying Method: Press “Air Fry” button, set the temperature to 400°F and cooking time to 10 minutes.

*Pro Tip: It will take roughly 8 – 10 minutes + preheat time to crisp the bacon. You can open the lid to check the progress.

*Option 2 – Oven Method: Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place it on the middle rack of a preheated 400°F oven. Bake bacon until crispy and golden-brown. Set a timer for roughly 18 – 20 minutes.

*Option 3 – Instant Pot Saute Method: Layer bacon slices in the inner pot. Press “Saute” button and adjust to “Saute Less”. It will take roughly 10 – 12 minutes to crisp the bacon slices.

After crisping bacon, place them on a paper towel to absorb any excess fat. Then, cut them into bacon bits.

*Tip: Try not to sample and “taste test” all the bacon here…hehe~ 😉

Preparation


While the bacon are crisping, you can prepare the remaining ingredients.

First scrub potatoes under running water, and poke holes throughout the potatoes with a fork.

*Pro Tip – Freshly Grated Cheese: If possible, use freshly grated cheese because they taste better and has fewer additives than pre-shredded cheese.

Pressure Cook Potatoes


Now, you’ll need to clean and dry the Instant Pot’s inner pot.

First, add 1 cup (250ml) of cold water, and a trivet or air fryer basket in Instant Pot.

Then, place the 4 potatoes on the trivet.

Close lid, then turn Venting Knob to Sealing position.

  • Pressure Cooking Method: Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 34 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release.

After 10 minutes of natural releasing, carefully turn the Venting Knob to Venting Position to release the pressure.

Once the Floating Valve drops, open the lid carefully.

*Note: Since our potatoes are quite large (measured at 8.5″ circumference), we’ll need to pressure cook them at High Pressure for 34 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release. You may need to adjust the cooking time accordingly depending on the size of your potatoes.

Cut Potatoes


First allow potatoes to cool to the touch. Then, use a paring knife to remove the top part of the potatoes.

*Pro Tip: If a part of the potatoes has cracked during the pressure cooking process, cut that part off as the top.

For simplicity, you can just cut off the top ¼ of the potatoes. But if you want to go fancy, cut the potatoes at an angle. Please see the photo below.

Then, use a small spoon to carefully scoop out the inner flesh (leave about ¼ inch of potato flesh attached to the skin), then place them in a large mixing bowl.

Make Mashed Potato Filling


First, add ¼ cup (56g) unsalted butter to the scooped potatoes, then mash them up with a potato masher.

With a silicone spatula, mix ½ cup (125ml) sour cream into the mashed potatoes.

*Pro Tip: Reserve about 2 tablespoons of cheese for later use.

Then, mix in the remaining grated mozzarella cheese, grated smoked cheddar cheese, finely sliced green onions, and bacon bits.
