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

I have to ask this–what is Instant Pot? This does sound delicious and quite filling, but easy to make.
