Homemade Mashed Potatoes

I am such a huge fan of homemade mashed potatoes over the store bought kind. You know what you are getting and can feel confidant when serving these to your family. This mashed red potatoes recipe is truly one of the easiest recipes there is, so don’t worry about the little bit of time it takes to make them.

How to make mashed potatoes in the Instant Pot

Making these mashed potatoes is truly easy. You don’t even have to peel the potatoes and they cook really fast. (See below for my video on how to make these easy Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes.) It’s truly the best mashed potatoes recipe we’ve had.

So just how do you make the best mashed potatoes? With a little bit of everything! I love the flavors of this recipe and the potatoes come out to be super moist. When we make these over the holidays it is always one of the first things to go. Not only that, but they are even better the next day (if they are still around!)

The flavors are so good together, and you won’t believe how easy it is to make this perfect side dish recipe. Why are these potatoes so good? Maybe the fact that they are so easy and take less than 10 minutes in the Instant Pot. (I love it when something so good takes very little time!)

Not only that, but these mashed potatoes can be made WAY before the rest of the meal is made. Talk about making things easy during the holidays! I love making most of my dishes the day before, and this one is no exception.

Here is what you will need for this recipe:

Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

Take the uncooked red potatoes and place them into the Instant Pot. Cover with water.

Place the lid securely into place, set the valve to “seal” and then put the Instant Pot on manual for 8 minutes.

When the cooking time is finished, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release pressure for 10 minutes before moving the valve t0 “vent”. I always cover mine with a hand towel just in case any thing decided to spurt out of the lid.

Once the pressure has been released, remove the inner pot and drain the excess water.

Place the potatoes into a bowl and add cream cheese, butter, milk, sour cream, and salt and pepper. Mash the potatoes really well and mix everything up good. Add in the chopped green onion and mix again.

Here is the best part. Either serve immediately while warm, or store them in the fridge and serve them later. The longer these potatoes sit in the fridge the better the flavors are going to be. Check out the video below.

In fact, these potatoes would be SO GOOD when serving these awesome Instant Pot Beef Tips over them. Just skip the rice!
