Instant Pot Loaded Potato Salad


2.5 pounds potatoes, peeled & cubed (I used russet potatoes) * 1.5 cups water * 8 oz sour cream & onion dressing (I use Axelrod) * 1/2 cup mayonnaise * 1 tsp Italian seasoning * 1 cup real bacon bits (I used Oscar Mayer) * 6 oz sharp cheddar cheese, cut into pieces about the same size as the potatoes


Place a trivet or steamer basket into the Instant Pot. Place the potatoes and water into the Instant Pot. Set the Instant Pot on manual high with a cooking time of 4 minutes. When the Instant Pot has finished cooking the potatoes, do a quick pressure release. Remove the potatoes and let cool. Place the mayonnaise, sour cream & onion dressing, and Italian seasoning into a small bowl and mix. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the potatoes and mix thoroughly. Add the bacon and stir thoroughly. Add the cheese and stir thoroughly. Refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving.
