Pressure Cooker Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Print Pin This


  • 2.5 lbs Russet Potatoes washed, peels left on
  • 1 onion about 1/2 lb
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1.5 cups heavy cream (or half & half)

Topping options (optional)

  • 1/2 lb bacon cooked crispy and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 5 green onions chopped


  • Chop the potatoes into 2 in chunks and roughly chop the onion.
  • Add the potatoes, onion, chicken broth, garlic, salt, and pepper to the electric pressure cooker and set to high pressure for 12 minutes. Natural release for 5 minutes, then quick release any additional pressure.
  • Once it is done cooking open the lid and add the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and cream. Use a potato masher to blend the soup together for a very slightly chunky loaded potato soup, or an immersion blender for a super smooth loaded potato soup.
  • Top with your choice of toppings and Enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
  • Half and Half or milk can be substituted to make the soup lighter or less rich.
