An American Favorite…. Mac & Cheese can be made even easier in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker! In 5 minutes this favorite will be perfectly cooked for you to enjoy.
Who doesn’t love a good Mac & Cheese? I think we all do! And we likely have eaten enough of the boxed Mac & Cheese but nothing compares to homemade.
Try this Mac & Cheese in your Instant Pot and you will be hooked as we are.
I have to be honest, I was extremely skeptical that this would be cooked in 5 minutes. But I thought, ‘what can I lose?’, so I tried it.
In record time, the pasta was perfectly cooked. All my mess was contained to one pan!
Yippee! Even better, right? And I have very little clean up.
It will take about 8 minutes for your Instant Pot to pressure up. The 5 minute cooking time will begin once the correct pressure has been reached. After 5 minutes a beeper will signal and then you can Quick Release the pressure.
You do this by turning the pressure knob forward. Place a towel over the Quick Release so the steam doesn’t go every where. Also, this recipe tends to make the steam “spit”. So a towel just takes care of any mess that could happen.
Eat it up:
This recipe was a hit the first time. I’m a little embarrassed to say that we have now made Mac & Cheese daily this past week. You would think 1 pound of pasta would be enough.
With a family of grown boys, they think they need more! But really, this is a large portion and will easily feed 6-8 as a side dish to compliment any meal.
You could also throw it into a casserole dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs and throw into the oven for a few minutes too. Just like Grandma used to make! And no one needs to know it only took you minutes. I won’t tell!
