I love baking potaotes in my Instant Pot. However, I love to eat the skin of the potatoes. When I bake the potatoes that way, I miss having that crispy skin from baking them in the oven. Enter in now, the Instant Pot crispy baked potatoes.
Next that baking sheet goes on the middle rack of your oven that has been preheated to broil. You give those a mintue or 2 to cook. Then turn them and give them another minute or 2. The result is tender potatoes with crispy skins that are tasty enough to eat.
Slice open those beauties and top them with some butter. Then add some sour cream and salt and pepper. Or feel free to make it a loaded baked potato with the addition of cheese, bacon, and chives. Better yet, have a baked potato bar with all the fixing your heart desires. Either way, you’ll be in carb heaven with these Instant Pot crispy baked potatoes!Print
