I make over 5 lbs of potato salad each year for family gatherings. It is great to make but having to watch the pot constantly while trying to do other things is hard for me at times. So today when I had to make mashed potatoes I decided to make in my Instant Pot. It took 1/3 of the regular time for me to make. Also I was able to boil the eggs at the same time.
3 lbs of fresh potatoes
salt and pepper
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of onion
2cups of water or broth.
How to make
Clean the potatoes first in your sink
Once clean you will peel your potatoes if you want, I dice mine up so they cook faster.
Place you water it broth in the pressure cooker.
Then place in your potatoes.
Then place your eggs on top of the potatoes.
Close your lid and use manual mode for 9 minutes.
While those are cooking you can cut up your onion. Once the timer goes off you will quick release the pressure.
Take the eggs out and give a cold bath.
Drain your potatoes place in a clean bowl. Dice up your eggs.
Add your onion, garlic, mustard and egg in with mayo and mustard. Mush up with a potato masher and enjoy.
