Gotta love an electric pressure cooker!
I’m so excited to share my daughters Easy Pressure Cooked Southern Potato Salad Recipe with you today! The electric pressure cooker has taken over the world of Pressure Cooking and for good reason. It’s made the task of putting a delicious, nutritious meal on the table that much quicker and easier! My Instant Pot has changed my life in the kitchen. My youngest daughter jumped on bandwagon a few months ago and she’s using hers all the time too. I taught my husband how to use it today and he made the best 15 Bean and Ham Soup I’ve ever had. Yes, I will be sharing that one soon too!
Potato Salad in the pressure cooker?
Potato Salad in an electric Pressure Cooker is fast and super easy to throw together because all you have to do is peel and cube potato’s, add some water and put 2 or 3 whole unpeeled raw eggs in the pot, turn it on for a few minutes and you’ve got all the fixings ready for a yummy bowl of creamy potato salad!
The options are endless
You can even make your own unique version unlike any other! I like boiled eggs, mayo, a bit of mustard and salt and pepper. That’s it. But a lot of folks add sweet pickle relish, onions or celery. How about garlic, parsley, lemon pepper, capers, jalapeno peppers, cumin, nuts or dill pickles? The sky is definitely the limit here and you are the only one stopping you from putting whatever you want in your potato salad.
We like to have our potato salad on top of a big bowl of piping hot gumbo!
