INSTANT POT MASHED POTATOES WITH SKIN

The reason, I like to prepare my mashed potatoes this way. Because the russet potato skin has more nutrients than the potato itself.

And honestly, the instant pot cooks them so well.  And is the ONLY way I will ever prepare mashed potatoes in the future. 

I like to use Russet Potatoes for this recipe. Because they are fluffy and creamy all in one!

HOW TO INSTANT POT MASHED POTATOES

There are a few tricks to getting your potatoes so fluffy and it starts with the potato. Russet is the type of potato that really is known to produce the fluffiest potatoes. 

Then you will simply want to dice those potatoes and cover them with water to pressure cook.

Once cooked, strain the water out. Add in remaining ingredients and mashed to desired consistency!

ARE MASHED POTATOES HEALTHY

Yes, it is a vegetables. That are low in fat on their own. So instead of adding to much butter, I like to balance these potatoes with butter, sour cream and milk. 

INSTANT POT MASHED POTATOES GARLIC

If you want a really creamy potato, make sure that you are pressing the garlic prior to pressuring cooking with the potatoes. This will ensure REALLY CREAMY mashed potatoes.

You can use a hand held blender or potato ricer vs a potato masher if desired. 

I used a masher for this so that the recipe would be ready in the 15 minute to frame!
