Pressure Cooker Cheddar Bacon Beer Dip

Pressure Cooker Cheddar Bacon Beer Dip

I know you’ve been waiting for this post all week! It’s my very FIRST recipe made in a pressure cooker!! Are you excited? I’m excited because it actually worked!! YAAAAYYYYY!!!!!! When Cosori asked me to test out their 6-Quart Premium Pressure Cooker I knew that I had to start with an easy recipe. Like something that would be totally foolproof. This Pressure Cooker Cheddar Bacon Beer Dip is the perfect recipe to get your feet wet. This creamy, luscious, totally irresistible dip will be the life of your next party. It’s over the top cheesy, bacon-y, and loaded with lots of beer flavor of course. It pairs amazingly with our Beer Pretzels, but you could also use toasted bread, chips, veggies, or just about anything for dipping. I think I’ve found our new go to snack for Game Day!!!

Here’s all you’ll need: cream cheese, sour cream, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, beer, bacon, cheddar cheese, heavy whipping cream, green onions, and Beer Pretzels for dipping.

First let’s cook and crumble the bacon. I love this No Mess Bacon method! It’s my go to every. dang. time. This recipe calls for ALOT of bacon but isn’t that how you know it’s going to be good?!? I mean what would Cheddar Bacon Beer Dip really be without the bacon? Oh and before I forget, you’re gonna wanna set aside about 2 tablespoons of that bacon to garnish.

Then combine the cream cheese, sour cream, mustard and garlic in a greased pressure cooker. Beat with a hand blender until well combined. Yup! You can mix it all up right in the pot. That’s actually my favorite thing about pressure cooking so far, every recipe feels like a one pan wonder.

Next stir in the beer and the bacon (but not the two tablespoons that we set aside). We always use Bud Light cause that’s how we roll, but any ale will work just fine. Just stay away from dark varieties. Secure and lock the lid to the pressure cooker ensuring that the steam vent is closed. Select the manual function, adjust the pressure to medium, and set the cook timer for 5 minutes. Seriously isn’t this so easy??? Meanwhile you might as well slice up those green onions because I mean there’s really nothing else to do!

When cooking is finished, use the quick-release pressure valve and release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions. I always wear an oven mitt for this part. Safety first! Select the saute setting and adjust the temp to normal heat (about 250-275 degrees). Add the cheese and heavy cream. Mmm!! SO Cheesy!!!

Cook and stir for about 5 minutes until the cheese is completely melted and the mixture has thickened slightly. I still can’t believe we’re doing all this in one pot. We literally have one pot, a spatula and some mixing beaters to clean. How is this even possible???
