Mashed potatoes are the ultimate comfort food and now that I’ve figured out a hands off way of making them, I’m pretty sure I’m going to be eating so many potatoes that I’m going to turn into one. I love how you just set everything in one pot and you’re done. Just pop your potatoes in, cook on high pressure for 7 minutes, mash, season, and eat. So simple and so good. My pro tip here is using a sieve (or a ricer) to push your potatoes through instead of mashing. You end up with super smooth and creamy mashed potatoes.

Instant Pot Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe
serves 4

  • 2 lbs potatoes, peeled and quarted
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, optional
  • 2 tablespoons butter, or to taste
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup milk, or to taste
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

Place the potatoes, chicken stock, and garlic, if using, in the Instant Pot (or pressure cooker). Put the lid on, set the pressure to high and cook time to 7 minutes. Quick release the pressure when cooking time is completed.

Remove the potatoes from the liquid and mash or push through a ricer or a sieve (my preferred way of making extra smooth mashed potatoes). Sometimes I add a bit of the leftover chicken stock that the potatoes were cooked in for a bit more flavor. Stir in the butter, milk, and salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
