Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

So, we’ve had the instant pot for awhile and I’ve yet to make one of the simplest dishes there is: Mashed Potatoes! Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are fairly easy to make and delicious.

Another plus to making the mashed potatoes in the instant pot is that it frees up your stove and time to cook the rest of your dinner! Especially helpful on Thanksgiving Day or just when you’ve got a lot of different things to cook in general.

Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

To make these you’ll need potatoes (Russet or Yukon), water, milk, butter, salt, and just a smidge of cream cheese.

Start by peeling and cutting the potatoes into smaller chunks.
Place them in your instant pot liner and add your water.
Place the lid on top of the pot, seal it, and place it on manual for 8 minutes.
Once they’re done cooking switch to vent and quick release!
Next, drain them.
Add the milk, butter, cream cheese. Mix and mash them well. Make sure there aren’t any lumps.

They are ready to enjoy! You can also leave them in the instant pot on warm while you prepare the rest of the dinner!

[You can make them Dairy Free as well. Follow the same directions as above but, instead of the milk, butter, and cream cheese – you’ll add a dairy free margarine spread like country crock, almond milk, and chicken broth!]
