- Heat a 6 qt. Instant Pot and add 2.5 lbs. peeled whole potatoes.
- Cover halfway with water (do not fully submerge them). Add 2 teaspoons salt to the water.
- Secure the lid and cook on high pressure for 12 minutes.
- Release the pressure naturally. Carefully remove the inside pot and drain, then return to the cooker.
- Use a hand mixer on low to mash them, but be careful not to over-mix. Add in ½ a stick of butter 1 tablespoon at a time while continuing to blend.
- When the butter melts and they're completely smooth, add 2 cups whole milk. Blend well, then season with salt (about 1 teaspoon) and pepper to taste.
- Add even more flavor to your potatoes by including chopped green onions and additional butter!
- No need to cut your potatoes. After peeling, you can cook them whole in the Instant Pot. That’s part of what makes this recipe so convenient!
- Be careful not to over-mix. If you mix them on too high of a speed or for too long, they will come out gluey! Mix gently.
