We’re addicted to these pressure cooker seasoned red potatoes in our house. For several reasons-
- They’re delicious.
- They are done SO FAST without heating up the whole kitchen.
Friends ask my all the time how I come up with content, recipes and ideas for our blog. This specific recipe ended up being one of those recipes that was invented by accident.
I love potatoes! In just about every way shape and form. I especially love them as a side for dinner. They are versatile and filling especially for my kids little bodies. My new favorite way to cook potatoes is in the instant pot. They cook up so quick, whereas the oven always takes close to an hour AND fills the kitchen with heat. So one day, while trying to decide how on earth to spice up my potatoes in the instant pot I threw in some seaonsings that sounded good together and BAM. Heaven on a potato.
How to make Pressure Cooker seasoned potatoes
