What Idaho® Potatoes should I use in this recipe?
My favorite potato for this recipe is the Idaho® Russet Potato. Idaho® Red Potatoes and Idaho® Gold Potatoes are also delicious in this recipe!
Spread some avocado oil around the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add layers of Idaho® potato slices along the bottom and layer with salt and Litehouse chives and garlic. Keep building up the layers until you use all of the potatoes.
Add the cream, water, and goat cheese. Close the Instant Pot and cook on manual for 10 minutes. Use the quick release to let the pressure out.
Spoon the cooked potatoes into a casserole dish. Top with mozzarella and chives. Broil for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
Can you make this recipe without an Instant Pot or pressure cooker?
You can easily make this gluten free potato casserole recipe without an Instant Pot or pressure cooker. You will want to add the sauce ingredients (cream, seasonings, and goat cheese to a small pan and simmer on low until the cheeses are all melted and it bubbles.)
Add the sliced potatoes to a casserole dish and pour the cheese sauce on top of the potatoes. Bake at 350F degrees for 25 minutes until the potatoes are softening. Remove from the oven and add the mozzarella cheese and chives on top. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Test to make sure your potatoes are soft.
Baking time will vary by if you used a mandolin slicer or if you sliced by hand. Thicker potato slices will take longer to bake.
Can you serve this Instant Pot potato casserole without broiling cheese on top?
You can definitely make this potato casserole without broiling the cheese on top if you are trying to save time.
Can I freeze the potato casserole?
This Instant Pot Potato Cheese Casserole can easily be frozen. Place it in a freezer-safe dish and seal it. To thaw, remove from the freezer and you can either microwave it or heat it back up in your oven by placing it into an oven-safe dish. Bake at 350F degrees until bubbly.
