Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes
Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are a simple and easy way to make creamy mashed poatoes without a lot of hands on time.
Servings: 14 people
- 3 pounds russet potatoes washed, peeled, and cut into fourths
- 4 cups water
- 3/4 cup milk (I used skim milk)
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Place your prepared potatoes in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
Cover with water. Close the lid and set it to sealing.
Set the Instant Pot to Manual, High, for 10 minutes.
At the end of the time, do a quick release to release the pressure. Once the float valve drops, open the Instant Pot carefully.
Drain the water. Make sure to completely drain them. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes. Add in butter first so the hot potatoes can melt it. Then add in the milk. Using a hand mixer, blend the potatoes until smooth.
Add half the amount of salt, garlic powder, and black pepper listed. Taste and add more until it is the taste you prefer.
