I know you can pop a potato in the microwave for a quick bite to eat but when you have as many people in your house as we do, everyone seems to want a potato at the same time. The microwave can’t cook them fast enough and the oven seems like it takes forever.
In comes our superhero of the kitchen, our Power Cooker XL, which can whip up some baked potatoes in a hurry. You can cook up a few extra to have on hand for a quick meal or snack during the week or you can also wrap the extras in foil and freeze them for later.
Super Easy Power Cooker Potatoes
- 6-10 potatoes of similar size
- 1 c. water
- sour cream
- bacon bits
- salt and pepper
- shredded cheese
Scrub your potatoes well and poke them all over with a fork.
Place the steamer rack in your power cooker and place the potatoes on the rack.
Add the water.
Set the manual cook time to 12 minutes for small potatoes and up to 20 minutes for larger potatoes.
Place the lid on making sure that the pressure release is closed.
When the cooker is finished let it sit until the pressure releases on it’s on.
Top your potatoes with whatever you like.
For Crispier skin:
(takes a little bit longer but so worth it)
Rub the cooked potatoes with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes.
