These Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are an easy side dish for any holiday or weeknight dinner! They are creamy and flavourful and come together so quickly!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds red potatoes cut into 1.5" pieces
  • 1 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • additional salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Add the potatoes to the Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker (no need for a trivet!) Pour in the chicken broth, salt, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and pepper and stir.
  2. Put the lid on, turn the valve to sealing, and set to Manual, high pressure, for 10 minutes. It will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure and start counting down.
  3. When the cook time is over, turn the Instant Pot off and let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and then open the valve to release remaining pressure.
  4. Add butter and mash until smooth. Season to taste. Serve.
