Loaded Instant Pot Mac And Cheese

16 ounces (454 g) elbow macaroni
4 cups (1 L) cold running water
4 tablespoons (60 g) unsalted butter
14 ounces (397 g) sharp cheddar, freshly grated
6 ounces (170 g) mild cheddar or American cheese, freshly grated

  1. Crispy Bacon Bits: Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place it on the middle rack of a preheated 400°F oven. Bake bacon until crispy and golden-brown. Set a timer for roughly 18 - 20 minutes. Place them on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat. Cut into bacon bits.
  2. Pressure Cook the Elbow Macaroni: Add 16 ounces (454 g) of elbow macaroni, 4 cups (1 L) of water, and a pinch of kosher salt into your pressure cooker. Close the lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 4 minutes. Do a gradual quick release. There is a slight chance that a tiny amount of foam will come out with the steam. Have a towel handy just in case. Open lid carefully.
  3. Prepare the Crispy Breadcrumbs: While the macaroni is pressure cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon (15 g) of unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of olive oil, and ½ cup (31 g) of panko breadcrumbs to the skillet. Toast the breadcrumbs until golden brown. Taste and add kosher salt for seasoning.
