Easy Instant Pot Recipes for Beginners
With a turkey in the oven, casseroles waiting to be baked and countless other side dishes cooking on the stovetop, the last thing you want to worry about is mashed potatoes. Although the side dish is easy to make, it takes up unecessary room on the stovetop. You can make them in a slow cooker, but that takes hours upon hours. With this handy technique, your Instant Pot does all of the work for you and saves room in the kitchen.
Start by adding cut up potatoes, chicken broth, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper to your Instant Pot and stir well. Cover with the lid and cook for 10 minutes at high pressure. Once the pressure is released, add in the butter and mash up the softened potatoes.
Serve the mashed potatoes the good old fashioned way, or load them up with scallions, cheese or a dollup of sour cream. If you enjoyed this technique for serving potatoes, you’re going to love more of our inventive potato recipes, from casseroles to loaded soups.
