My fiance recently blessed me with an Instapot. It was the kitchen gadget I never knew I needed. I make delicious dinners faster than ever before. Being a work from home mom, it made my life way easier. Get your Instapot by clicking here.

I have three young kiddos and boxed mac-n-cheese is always a hit in our house. With the new Instapot I have been testing out gourmet recipes and also easy laid back ones. When my children asked for mac-n-cheese a few weeks ago I gave it a go in the Instapot. I did it completely wrong and it turned into mush. I have since played with the recipe. Here is what works and makes delicious mac-n-cheese.


2 boxes of mac-n-cheese

2 cups of water

5 tablespoons of butter

1/2 cup of milk

Shredded cheese (optional)

Seasonings of your choice (we like Nature’s Seasoning and salt)


  1. Combine macaroni noodles, butter, and water in the Instapot.

  2. Set the Instapot to Manual for 5 minutes.

  3. Quick release the Instapot.

  4. Add milk, cheese packets, and seasonings.

  5. Enjoy.
