Gourmet Mac & Cheese in Instant Pot

Tonight I wanted to make something that was taste but not the same old same old mac and cheese.  So made some 

Gourmet Mac & Cheese in my Instant Pot. 

The recipe was simple but also creamy and perfect for my family.  So I am going to share with you how to make enough for your family.   This went great with my leftover ham I had and this will serve 4-5 people.

Ingredients you need to make Gourmet Mac & Cheese in Instant Pot
 
1/2 pd of elbow macaroni (small size works best)
1/2 stick of butter (slice up in 4 pieces)
1  1/4 cup of half and half
2 cup of sharp cheese
1 egg beaten
4 oz of Velveeta Cheese 
if you don’t use Velveeta cheese add (60z of cheddar)
some salt and pepper

 

Instructions to make
 
It is easiest if you make the pasta first on the stove, I have learned. 
Once I have my pasta cooked I place the pasta in my Instant Pot 
add in  my butter stir till melted.
Next I add in half the cheese, eggs , Velveeta and salt and pepper.
Then I stir up well and then add the leftover cheese on top and place lid on my Instant Pot.  
I cook on high pressure for 15 minutes, once the timer goes off let the pressure natural release then open and stir up well.  If it looks a little dry you can add a little more half and half.  
 
If you have a  lot of family coming over you can easily double this recipe and it will feed 8-9 people.  I haven’t tried this recipe in a crock pot yet but I bet it would work but in a stove I know it works  I used to make all the time in my stove but I had to bake it at 350 for 30-35 minutes so I found that  I could cut my time in half with my Instant Pot.
