What is so good about this Instant Pot Scalloped Potatoes recipe?

  • The potatoes take so little time to be ready while it takes over an hour in an oven!
  • Easy homemade cheese sauce comes together in minutes to envelop your perfectly cooked potatoes in it.
  • It would be amazing with just a big slice of Crusty Bread!
  • This version just so happens to be lightened up so you can have your potatoes and still have room for your Ham, Cornbread, and Apple Pie too!

Do I really have to peel the potatoes?

No. This recipe called for peeled sliced potatoes. Try both ways and see what you prefer.

Do I have to use Air Fryer Lid?

Yes. You can use Instant Pot Duo Crisp, Mealthy CrispLid or any similar appliance as well.

If you don't have any of those, you can make this recipe in the oven or just choose another delicious potato recipe.

Which kind of potatoes should I use?

You need starchy potatoes to add the velvety, deliciousness of this dish.

Russet and Yukon are the best approaches here.

I lean toward Yukon for the additional flavor and I like the delicate, yet strong chomp they loan.

Can I skip Chicken Broth?

You can add milk instead of Chicken broth if you desire.

What else can I add to my recipe?


If you want to make homemade Scalloped Potatoes with Ham, simply add in about 100g (⅔ cup) of cubed ham along with the cheese mixture.

Sweet potatoes

Feel free to substitute a little of the potato with some sweet potatoes.


A spoon full or two of pesto adds in a whole new flavor profile.

Can I freeze my Instant Pot Scalloped Potatoes?

All you need to do is take the potatoes out a little bit before they are done.

This helps protect their texture so they don’t fall to a mush.

You can then bake from frozen or thaw them in the fridge before baking.

What to Serve it with?

Scalloped potatoes make a great main course yet used as a side dish as well.

Try it with:

Instant Pot Roast Beef

Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin

Instant Pot Salsa Chicken

Instant Pot Lamb Chops
