  • Dice the new potatoes into quarters and place them in the Instant Pot as you chop them.
  • Clean and dice the spring onion and place it into the Instant Pot too.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Add 1.5 cups of water to the Instant Pot. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 30 minutes on manual pressure.
  • When it beeps manually release pressure. Drain the potatoes and spring onions well.
  • Place the potatoes back in the Instant Pot. Using a vegetable knife slash them so that they resemble crushed potatoes.
  • Add your cheeses and place the Instant Pot on the keep warm setting. Mix well with a fork until all the cheese is mixed in.


Because we were in a hotel room when cooking, we had no space anywhere for leftovers but we reckon this would be enough to feed at least 8 people. If you halved the recipe ingredients, then it would be perfect for a family of 4. You can also use a masher, but we were travelling and didn’t take ours with us.
BUT it won’t have the Sloppy Joes look if you use a masher. We also used five counties as our preferred cheese. It is a well-known English blend and includes 5 different English cheeses. Instead you could use some grated 5 cheese from the supermarket or whatever you prefer.
We used 1.5 cups of water, just because this is a lot of potatoes and it would struggle to come to pressure otherwise. When I add the cheese, I also add extra salt and pepper. This is because sometimes the pressure can strip away flavour and it ends up with a dull flavour that is begging for salt to be added.
