Makes 8 servings
1 pound sliced bacon, chopped
1 pound elbow macaroni
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
3/4 cup milk
8 ounces Velveeta, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded extra-sharp Cheddar
1 1-ounce packet ranch salad dressing mix
1. Cook the chopped bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
2. Put 3 3/4 cups water, the macaroni, mustard, pepper, and salt in the pressure cooker. Stir to combine, ensuring the macaroni is covered by water. Close the lid, set to high pressure, and cook for 6 minutes. Do a quick release.
3. Open the lid, add the evaporated milk, regular milk, Velveeta, cheddar, and dressing mix. Turn the pressure cooker off and stir well to combine all. Close the lid of the pressure cooker and let sit until the cheeses are melted, about 3 minutes. Stir in the bacon before serving.
