Ingredients

  • 1 lb spicy ground sausage could use ground beef if you prefer
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 stalks celery sliced
  • 8 pcs bacon
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt we used Lawry's
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 c chicken broth could use beef broth
  • 2 c cheese
  • 1/2 c heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch to thicken if desired
  • 1/2 c sour cream optional, for topping at end.

Instructions

  • Set Instant Pot to saute and add butter, ground beef and diced onions. Cook until most of pink in ground beef is cooked (3/4 way or so). (if your bacon isn't already cooked you can dice it and add it in now to cook it all together.)
  • Dice celery and cooked bacon and add into pot, if you haven't added the bacon already. Turn your Instant Pot off.
  • Add seasoned salt and garlic powder, stir together. Pour in chicken or beef broth and stir.
  • Close lid and steam valve and set to pressure high for 3 minutes. Do a quick release when done.
  • Turn pressure cooker off and then press saute, normal, again and add heavy cream and 1 1/2 c. of your cheese. Stir allowing cheese to melt. 
  • Add some of this hot liquid soup to a bowl with your cornstarch and whisk together, then add back into the Instant Pot and stir so it thickens.
  • Turn Instant Pot off, stir in remaining 1/2 c of cheese and serve topped with additional shredded cheese and chives/green onions or a dollop of sour cream.
