Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

One of our favorite holiday side dishes is mashed potatoes. As much as I love them, it’s one thing I have always kind of dreaded making because it takes too long. At least it did until I started using the Instant Pot! It makes making mashed potatoes easier than you would ever realize! Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are now my favorite!


  • 6 Potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 Cups broth
  • ¼ Cup butter
  • ⅓ Cup sour cream
  • ¼ Cup milk
  • ½ Tsp garlic powder
  • ½ Tsp onion powder
  • ¼ Tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the potatoes in the Instant Pot and cover with the broth. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Close the lid and vent and set on high pressure for 10 minutes.
  3. Manually release steam and open the valve and lid. Drain the potatoes, discarding the stock and keeping the potatoes in the Instant Pot.

  4. Add the rest on the ingredients and mash until everything is combined and the mashed potatoes are creamy, viola! Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes!
