Not all mashed potatoes are created equal…we’re going to share our secret to amazing instant pot mashed potatoes!  The best part – they take less than 10 minutes to cook!  We really like to cook instant pot mashed potatoes in 2 different ways:

Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

  1. Above a main dish in the instant pot – we featured this style in our Instant Pot pot roast recipe.  You will NOT want to cube the potatoes with this type of cooking because the pot roast cooks for 35 minutes.  This saves a ton of time and is so convenient to just throw an entire meal into one pot.  Once cooked, use the recipe below – just ignore the cooking instructions
  2. Sliced into fourths and cooked on their own – we will show you how to do this recipe below
