Instant Pot Baked Potato Soup

Instant Pot Baked Potato Soup goes together in no time and makes a great simple meal.

Instant Pot Baked Potato Soup

I shared this picture over the weekend on Instagram and Facebook and several of you asked about the recipe so I knew I had to share it.

I love my Instant Pot. It makes dinner so quick and easy. I am loving experimenting with it. Recipes like today are the main reason why. The Instant Pot is saving me so much time in the kitchen.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, don’t worry, I am not going to turn this into an Instant Pot site. I plan to post an occasional recipe, but it won’t be all the time. So there will still be plenty of good food for the non Instant Pot owners.

Instant Pot Bake Potato Soup

This soup is actually an adaption of two soups that I have been making for years. I combined the two basic ideas and made them in the Instant Pot.

I took my slow cooked baked potato soup and my homemade panera potato soup and combined them into an easy Instant Pot soup. If you don’t have an Instant Pot you can easily make one of those soups. They are both delicious as well!

The reason I decided to make this soup is because I had a few potatoes left over from Thanksgiving that were starting to sprout. I wanted to use them up before they went bad. I also had a bunch of broth from the turkey I had cooked down. Making soup seemed like the perfect solution for using both things up.

I love this because is not only easy to make, it also uses basic ingredients.

We added bacon to ours because bacon makes everything better, but you don’t have to add the bacon. It is delicious without it too.

  1. Looks delicious! One question. When do you add the milk? I’m guessing when you mash the potatoes but wanted to make sure. 🙂

    Lynn, I am so happy that you are including Instant Pot meals. I am always trying to convert regular recipes to use in a pressure cooker and here you are providing recipes ready to use. The baked potato soup looks fabulous. I will make it this week.

  3. I’ve seen so many great recipes for the Instant Pot, here and on other sites, that I told my husband I wanted one for Christmas. I can’t wait to try this soup, as well as the other recipes I’m currently collecting. Thanks! 😀

    By chance, how much does this make?? When we make it in the crock pot, we try to double the recipe, but I don’t think that’s an option here. Thanks!

    • I don’t know the exact cups this makes. I think you could 1 1/2 the recipe, but I think doubling it might be too much for the Instant Pot. I hope that helps.

  5. I was hungry for potato soup this morning, but didn’t think I had all the ingredients to make a batch until I found your recipe and I had all of the ingredients! I made it for lunch today and it turned out great! I’m glad I didn’t add salt and went strictly by your recipe because I found it to be just right. I love this. It will be a keeper. Thank you for sharing it.

  6. Is there a dairy free version?
