Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes - Mmmmmm!

I found these on Damn Delicious - a site I use as a go-to often. This recipe is easy and quick and as you can tell by the great additions, makes for a great mashed potato!

Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes


3/4 cup water
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (1-ounce) package Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


Add water and 1 teaspoon salt to a 6-qt Instant Pot®. Place metal trivet into the pot. Gently add potatoes on top of the trivet.

Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 10 minutes. When finished cooking, quick-release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions.

Remove potatoes and trivet from the Instant Pot® and drain excess liquid before returning the potatoes to the pot. Stir in buttermilk, milk, sour cream, Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix and butter.

Using a potato masher, mash potatoes until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed until desired consistency is reached. Stir in chives; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Serve immediately.
