  • 1 cup Cache Valley® Four Cheese Mexican Shredded
  • 1 cup Cache Valley® Colby Jack and Monterey Shredded Cheese
  • 2.5 lbs russet potatoes (cut 1/2 inch thick)

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • In the instant pot, saute the bacon until crispy- about 8-10 mins.

  • Stir it, close the lid and set the pressure cooker to 1 minute on high. Turn the warming function off.

  • Add the milk, heavy cream, sour cream, and fresh rosemary. Stir and bring to a boil.
  • Turn the saute function off and pour the potatoes and sauce into a serving platter.
  • Top it with the crispy bacon pieces and serve.
