instant pot potatoes

Easy Instant Pot Baby Potatoes


  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil [EVOO]
  • 1.5 lbs baby potatoes [24 oz]
  • 1 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 1/3 cup water


  1. Turn on the IP Saute function (after you hit saute, you’ll see ‘on’, this means it’s heating up). Add EVOO into Instant Pot

  2. When the display reads ‘hot’ (Instant Pot fully heated), add potatoes and set a timer for 5 minutes occasionally stirring the potatoes [Note: I’ve made this recipe without actually stirring at all and it turns out fine though stirring is best practice.]

  3. When the timer is done, cancel Saute. Add water and italian seasoning 

  4. Place lid on Instant Pot, make sure it’s properly sealed and add 7 minutes on the manual setting

  5. When it’s complete, wait for the Instant Pot to completely depressurize naturally (approximately 15-20 minutes). Open, fluff and serve!
