Now you can make these delicious Garlic Mashed Potatoes right in your Instant Pot!
- 3 lbs. Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks
- 4-5 large garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely minced (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons butter,cut into chunks
Combine potatoes, garlic, rosemary leaves, and broth in Instant Pot®. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Add lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 8 minutes.
When cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.
Carefully remove lid and add heavy cream. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or immersion blender until almost smooth, but still slightly chunky. Taste and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
Transfer to a serving bowl and top with butter and serve immediately. Enjoy!
What goes with these delicious garlic mashed potatoes? Butter! You can definitely enjoy these spuds with your favorite gravy, but we love serving them with plain butter.
