Mashed Potatoes in the Instant Pot (No Drain)

I don’t know about you but when I want mashed potatoes from scratch… but want them without the fuss and muss… I usually get discouraged from making them or even including them in my meal planning.

Well… say “how do you do” to no-drain mashed potatoes in your instant pot!

This recipe works best in a 3 quart version but can be doubled for larger sized pots.

Personally, a little garlic makes them even more desirable but again, time crunch plus efficiency, equals skipping this part.

May I introduce Better Than Bouillon Garlic base!  Reminder, I get no kickbacks from any sponsors, so this is just my personal preference.  This stuff is terrific in vegetarian recipes as well as these mashed potatoes.

A little of this plus some water, throw in the potatoes chopped up and boy, you’re on your way to some great mash!

    I used this recipe as a base for making mashed potatoes and HOLY CRAP I am never going back!!! I used 5 lbs of gold/butter potatoes in my 6 qt Instant Pot, sprinkled garlic powder into the liquid then coated the potatoes with it, put half a stick of butter on top (I was paranoid and this was my first time!), cooked it for the amount of time suggested and my mind was BLOWN. They were absolutely perfectly done. Never going back to boiling potatoes again and dealing with starch spillage ever again.
    Thank you so much!!!
