  • 2 pounds Yukon gold or red potato, cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • 1 cup vegetable broth

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Combine potatoes, broth, and salt in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot). Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set the timer for 1 minute. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  2. Meanwhile, set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  3. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Carefully transfer potatoes to a deep 8-inch square baking dish.

  4. Combine 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, cream, garlic powder, pepper, and nutmeg in the pressure cooker with the remaining liquid; select Sauté function and cook until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes.

  5. Pour sauce evenly over potatoes and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese.

  6. Broil in the preheated oven until cheese is golden, about 5 minutes.
