Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes

It’s time to cook the creamiest, smoothest side dish ever. Using the Instant Pot to make mashed potatoes is so easy and guaranteed the best every time. Make it the ultimate side by adding these ingredients – roasted garlic, grated aged cheddar cheese, crispy bacon bits and/or garnished garden grown chives.
