Quick Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes
Want to make delicious mashed potatoes in a snap? 🥔
Mashed potatoes are pretty easy to make, but the process can be a little annoying with boiling a large pot of water on the stove, etc.
One way to cut down on both time and effort, is to make them in your Instant Pot pressure cooker! Just set the timer to cook, and then come back when it’s done to mash them right in the same pot. There’s no babysitting the stove, and the results are YUMMY!
My family prefers either red potatoes or Yukon golds, but feel free to use the type you would like. On this day we were in the mood for some garlic Parmesan potatoes so I’m sharing an easy recipe for those.
Note: I peeled off most of the potato skins because my kids are more likely to eat them without, but that’s a personal preference. If I was cooking for just me I’d leave them on, and make it even faster!
