Creamy Mashed Potatoes


White Scribbled Underline

– 5 lbs. – Russet potatoes – 1 tsp. – sea salt + 1 tsp. add during mashing – 3 oz. – salted butter + 1 tbsp. butter for topping – ½ cup – heavy whipping cream – Organic dill for garnish



8 servings

50 minutes

Step 1

Start by peeling and rinsing potatoes. Chop each potato into smaller chunks in a large bowl. I've cut the medium potato into 4 pieces and the large ones into 6 pieces.

Step 2

Rinse once more and then add chopped potatoes into the Instant pot inner pot. Add just enough water to cover all potatoes. Finally, add 1 tsp. of sea salt.

Step 3

Close the instant pot lid, and turn the valve to 'Sealing'. Click on the 'Pressure Cook' button and set the cooking time to 10 minutes.

Step 4

It takes about 10 to 15 minutes for the Instant pot to pressurize. Then the instant pot will beep when heated and a 10-minute cooking time will start.

Step 5

While the potatoes are cooking, cut butter into smaller pieces. Next, rinse and chop fresh dill, and heat the cream in a small saucepan.

Step 6

After the potatoes are done cooking, using a kitchen glove turn the valve to 'Venting'. Make sure not to lean over the instant pot or the coming out steam will burn your face.

Step 7

After the stem is released, open the Instant pot lid and use gloves to remove the inner pot of the Instant Pot. Carefully drain potatoes by dumping them into the strainer.

Step 8

You'll have perfectly cooked, fork-tender potatoes that are ready for us to mash!

Step 9

As soon as the water is drained transfer the potatoes from the strainer back into the Instant Pot inner pot. Place the inner pot back into the Instant Pot.

Step 10

Spread out cubed butter over drained potatoes and then using a hand mixer, potato masher, or potato ricer, cream the potatoes well.

Step 11

Next, add heated cream and beat the potatoes some more until it's all well combined.

Step 12

Cover the Instant pot back with a lid. Click on the keep warm cycle and adjust the timer to the preferred time (the picture below shows the timer set for 2 hours).

Step 13

That's it! Your potatoes will stay fresh and warm. Alternatively, you can also keep them warm in the oven but letting them stay in the instant pot is so much easier!

Step 14

Before serving sprinkle mashed potatoes with fresh dill and place some little pieces of butter if you'd like. Your delicious Creamy Mashed Potatoes are ready to be served!
