These Instant Pot Scalloped Crack Potatoes were a huge hit in our house! Yukon gold potatoes, bacon, ranch, heavy cream, milk, and cheddar cheese. I mean, what’s not to like?!?!? SO simple and SO delicious!!!
You will need a couple of special items to make these Scalloped Crack Potatoes. First, you will need 7-inch round pan. A deep-dish cake pan would work great. I used a pan I had in my pantry that fit inside my Instant Pot. I also suggest a handheld slicer to get the potatoes sliced evenly and thin. The thicker the potatoes, the longer it will take to cook.
These Instant Pot Scalloped Potatoes are very simple to make. Peel and slice potatoes, layer in the baking dish and pop in the Instant Pot. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the Instant Pot, and add more cheese!!! YASSS! Finally, pop the dish under the broiler for a minute to melt the cheese. Done! There isn’t a lot of hands-on time. The Instant Pot is really doing all the work.
We absolutely LOVED these Scalloped Crack Potatoes. SO cheesy and delicious. These potatoes are great with just about anything – chicken, pork, steak, burgers. We’ve made these several times and just can’t get enough of them. They are on the menu again this weekend! YUM!

I’ve never had a ‘fail’ with any of your recipes until this one. The high press cook time of 40 minutes turned my scalloped potatoes dish into a scalloped mashed potatoes dish. Tasted good, though. I’d like to ask if the cook time really should be 40 minutes? Thank you for your terrific recipes and the time you put in to helping us ‘chefs’ cook better
It could be that your potato slices were thinner than mine.
Bookmarked!, I love your site!
Can you preboil your potatoes
I believe you could easily cook it in the oven. Cut the potatoes thin and cover with foil. Cook on 350 for about 45 minutes. Fork test the potatoes. If done, remove foul and leave it just long enough to let cheese get a little color!
How long should One bake this in the oven, in the same shape pan?
I am not sure how long this would bake in the oven. I have only made this as written. I would need to do more recipe testing to determine the oven time.
Thank you for your quick reply.
Sounds good. How deep is your 7” pan, please. Wondering if I can use my springform pan. Thanks!
It is 3.25-inches deep
Sounds amazing – i love scalloped potatoes!
