  • 7 russet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • dried parsley flakes for garnish


  • First, peel the potatoes, and cut into large cubes (make sure all pieces are similar in size). Place in the Instant Pot  and cover with about 4 cups of water. Add one teaspoon of salt to the water. Close the lid, making sure the valve is in "sealing" position. Select the "steam" setting and cook for 12 minutes. As soon as the Instant Pot beeps and the potatoes are done; carefully do a quick pressure release. Drain the potatoes immediately into a strainer.
  • Return the potatoes back to the Instant Pot. Using a potato masher immediately mash the potatoes. Let the steam escape for a few minutes. Then mix in the butter and heavy cream. Salt and pepper to taste and add parsley flakes on top for garnish. Serve immediately.
