Instant Pot Bacon Cheddar Rice Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Rice is a favorite in our house. Not just because it’s very versatile and tasty, but also because it’s easy to find rice that is gluten-free. White rice is a staple in our home for just that reason. It can be used to make an affordable and tasty meal that everyone, not just folks that can’t have gluten, will eat and enjoy. This dish is easy to make, and gets its flavor from the bacon and cheese. Here’s how I made it.

Instant Pot Bacon Cheddar Rice


  • 1 1/2 cups white rice
  • 2 1/4 cups water
  • 4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded bacon
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. That looks so yummy and perfect for a night where a quick meal is needed. I don’t have an instant pot, but with all these new recipes for one I think I need to look into getting one.

  2. I have never had anything like this before but it sounds like something my sons would just love. Bacon, rice and cheese together is a winning combination!
