Tips for the Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes recipe

Making mashed potatoes has never been quicker or easier than these Instant Pot mashed potatoes. Here are a few tips to make these mashed potatoes even better:

  • You can add 1 or 2 teaspoons of garlic powder to your mashed potatoes for an extra bit of flavor.
  • If your potatoes look too watery after cooking in the Instant Pot, drain a few tablespoons of the liquid.
  • Do we have to peel the potatoes? We found that keeping the potatoes skin on adds texture to the dish. But feel free to peel them!
