Pressure Cooker Mashed Potatoes Recipe Tips

1. If you want flavorful and buttery mashed potatoes, don’t forget to heat up the butter, garlic and milk before mixing it with the potatoes. The potatoes will absorb the flavors much better this way.

2. Not all potatoes are created equal. So, if you want fluffy mashed potatoes, stick with starchy potatoes like Russets or Yukon Golds. 😉

3. Yes, you can double this recipe. The timing will stay the same. If you are tripling the recipe or the potatoes are packed too tightly, you may have to increase the cooking time by 1 – 2 minutes.

Ingredients
  • 4 russet potatoes or 6 Yukon gold potatoes (~2.5lbs/1100g), peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup (250ml) water
  • ~1/2 cup (100 ml) milk

  2. Place the vegetable steamer in the pot and add quartered potatoes in the steamer trivet.
  3. Close the lid. Cook in high pressure for 8 minutes with an Electric Pressure Cooker, then quick release.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, heat a small sauce pan over medium heat. Melt the butter and add the garlic. Add a pinch of kosher salt. Sauté the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant and golden in color. Add the milk and deglaze the pan. Remove mixture from heat when it is hot.
  5. Remove the lid. Mash the cooked potatoes in a medium mixing bowl with a potato masher. Add half of the garlic butter mixture to the bowl. Continue to mash, stir, and add the mixture until desired consistency. Add Parmesan cheese. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Just followed this exactly but with a 5 lbs. bag of russet. So nice to not have to deal with draining a giant pot of boiling water. It was so easy. Never going back to boiling them again. Thanks! Oh and I didn’t even add any time!

I am needing to feed about 30 adults. I have 8 qt insta pot. How full can I fill the insta pot and how much water and time would I need?

The steamer basket I have is flat on the bottom to where the potatoes would be sitting in the water..should i put it on top of a trivet to keep it above the water?

Could you just throw the garlic in whole with the potatoes or will it change the flavor?

Hi there,

This recipe looks amazing! However i am wondering if i can do these a day in advance to get a head start on the holiday cooking. Would you recommend mashing the same day they are cooked and adding the ingredients the next day?

Do I need to increase the time if I am making a FULL pot of potatoes? I have a huge family and they are die hard mashed potato fans.

Thanks!
