INSTANT POT MASHED POTATO RECIPE

Instant Pot Mashed Potato Recipe

Ingredients
  • 5 lbs potatoes, washed and scrubbed I recommend either Red or Russet, peeling optional
  • 1 cup water
  • 12 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1½ cups half and half (more may be needed if potatoes are dry)
  • ½ cup sour cream (optional)
  • Sea Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Turn the Instant Pot to heat up the pot.
  2. Pour ½ cup of water into the pot.
  3. Place washed potatoes into the Instant Pot.
  4. Place the lid on the pot, making sure the seal is in place inside the lid.
  5. Turn the lid to the closed position, and make sure the top is set to the "seal" position.
  6. Use the Manual setting and turn the Instant Pot on and set the time for 15 minutes.
  7. While the potatoes are cooking, melt 12 tablespoons of butter and warm the half and half in a measuring cup in microwave for about 1 minute, or just until warm. Set aside until potatoes are finished cooking.
  8. After the timer goes off, manually release the steam by turning the vent to the VENTING position, make sure to not place arm in the way of the steam vent!
  9. After all pressure has been released, remove the lid. Drain the excess water out of the Instant Pot.
  10. Add the melted butter and half and half and salt to the hot potatoes in the Instant Pot.
  11. Using a potato masher or an electric hand mixer, mash the potatoes until desired consistency.
  12. Add sour cream and about 1½ teaspoons salt to taste. If the potatoes are not creamy enough, add more sour cream and or half and half.
  13. Leave mashed potatoes in the Instant Pot on warm setting until ready to serve.
  14. Taste and add more salt if needed.
