This may sound a little dramatic, but these are the best potatoes ya’ll and they are now my all time favorite way to make them. I no longer dread making “real” potatoes for a weeknight meal. Anyone else out there snuck in some instant potatoes from time to time??

These are so quick and you can get them started while putting together the main dish. AND they are perfect for the holidays when you are scrambling to find a burner or more oven room!  Who else can relate to that?

You will need a pressure cooker for this (but you can boil them on stove top if you do not have one) and I personally use a 6 quart Instant Pot. I was skeptical for so many years and just have bought one in the last few months. Now I know why my grandmother loved her pressure cooker!

These potatoes were peeled, cubed, cooked and on the table in less than 30 minutes. Don’t ya just love that?

How to make the Creamiest Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

Wash, peel, and cube potatoes. Put them in the Instant Pot and cover with water about 1 inch over your potatoes. Close and lock lid. Turn vent to closed. Set on Manual High for 8 minutes.

When cooking time is complete. Quick release (manually open to release pressure) the valve. I like to place a damp cloth over mine. Drain potatoes and then put them back into the Instant Pot.

Add butter and heavy cream to potatoes. Beat with a hand mixer or potato masher (I use electric hand mixer).

Serve these glorious potatoes ya’ll. They are so creamy and good enough for a special occasion but easy enough for a weeknight meal!

    It works even better to put just a cup of water in the Instant Pot and place the potatoes in a steamer basket. The potatoes stay so dry!
