Pressure Cooker Hobo Casserole

This is a pretty tasty casserole that saves about an hour and 25 minutes of cook time in your pressure cooker.

Brown 1 pound of hamburger in the pressure cooker on the meat setting with lid off. Allow a few minutes for pot to preheat.

Add 1/4 cup chopped onion and brown with meat. Turn off pot when meat is cooked.

Slice 2 peeled medium-sized potatoes into thick slices. Place on top of meat.

Mix 1 can of cream of mushroom soup with 3/4 cup beef broth. Pour over potatoes and meat.

Cook on veggies setting for 4 minutes. Quick release.

Top with a 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Return lid to let cheese melt.

Sprinkle top with french-fried onions.

It might be a bit wet. So it can sit for a few minutes to cool and thicken on plate.

Pressure Cooker Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

After several attempts, I think I finally figured out how to make creamy tasty scalloped potatoes. They require a little more effort than I had hoped but are done much faster than the traditional oven method. They would also be good with chunks of cooked ham.

This recipe makes enough for 2-3 small side servings.

Slice 5 medium-sized peeled potatoes (1/8-1/4" thick)

1 cup water

1 Tablespoon dried minced onion

salt & pepper, to taste

Place all ingredients in pressure cooker. Set to 4 minutes on vegetable setting.

While the potatoes are cooking, make 3/4 cup of your favorite white sauce.

Quick release the pressure and carefully drain off any extra water.

Gently stir in white sauce and 1/2 cup grated cheese.

Put lid back on pressure cooker and let sit for 15 minutes on the keep warm setting before serving.
