Ingredients

  • 5 lbs russet potatoes
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz pkg cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter softened and sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Peel and cut your potatoes into small cubes
  • Put your potatoes in your Instant Pot and pour in your chicken broth
  • Seal your lid and cook on manual for 8 minutes
  • While it is cooking, mix together your remaining ingredients
  • Once it is done cooking, quick release
  • When it is safe to open your lid, open up and either add in your cream cheese mixture and mash with a potato masher, or pour your potatoes and cream cheese mixture into a mixing bowl and mash with your mixer on low speed until you reach your desired consistency

Notes

  • I have made this a couple times and have had any sputtering of liquid when quick releasing immediately, however, if you do, close the valve immediately and give it a few minutes before trying again. Do NOT do what Mikey and I do in this video!
  • No, I did not miss a step. Not only are these no boil mashed potatoes, they are also no drain! The chicken broth cooks into the potatoes which really takes these potatoes up a notch! Yum!
  • You can use a potato masher or a mixer. I know some people are highly against using a mixer. That is how Momma always made them when I was growing up, so that is how I like them. If you don’t like them that way, grab a masher and mash away!
