3 Beginner Instant Pot Recipes

Today i’m sharing 3 beginner Instant Pot recipes! If this is your first time trying an Instant Pot, make sure and watch my Instant Pot 101 video for all my the beginners tips!

And for all those curious, this is the Instant Pot that I have- I think it’s the perfect size. I bought mine off Amazon and it included the recipe book, trivet, everything you need!

First off for our 3 beginner Instant Pot recipes, let’s do some super quick, fluffy potatoes. This is my recipe for baked potato style potatoes, you know, the kind with all the fixings??? So good.¬†Keep in mind with these, there is a bit of a range in timing, based on the size of your potatoes. When in doubt, i’d say choose somewhere in the middle!
