These Instant Pot garlic mashed potatoes are a new holiday tradition for us!  They are super simple to make, can be prepared ahead of time (and baked day-of), and turn out SO creamy and delish.

Brett takes his mashed potatoes very seriously.  He is team #NoLumps, so when we mash them we really mash them!  I, on the other hand, don’t really care about the texture as long as the flavor is there.  This mashed potatoes use a SECRET SPICE to make them crazy delicious – and we can both agree on the flavor of these potatoes.

This Instant Pot Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe Is:

  • Creamy
  • Rich

Instant Pot Side Dishes for the WIN!

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat. I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.

Secret Ingredient Mashed Potatoes

The secret to making these mashed potatoes so flavorful is….. Montreal Steak Spice seasoning!  Its one of our favorite spices to use, REALLY we put it on almost everything.  You can read all the recipes that we use Montreal Steak Spice in here!  I love it because it already has salt and pepper, some garlic, and dill that gives everything a je ne sais qua.

Can I Leave the Skins on Mashed Potatoes?

Yes!  I always leave the skins on my mashed potatoes as it gives you extra nutrients by eating the peel.  You can peel yours before cooking if desired. Highly recommend keeping the skins on though- as they whip right into the potatoes and you can barely tell they’re there!
