The process for making this mashed potato recipe is almost identical to the conventional way. You cook the potatoes, add some butter, milk and/or sour cream and mash away. The only difference with this recipe is how we are going to cook the potatoes.

The classic and most common way of making mashed potatoes requires you to bring some water to a boil in a large pot and cook the potatoes until tender, however long that takes.

If you have an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker you simply add the quartered potatoes and water to the pot and cook for 10 minutes. Easy peasy.

As you would imagine, the bacon, cheese and green onion toppings are totally optional. I usually put each topping in a small bowl and let my guests add whatever topping they want to their mashed potatoes. Personally, I like mine with all the toppings just like how I prefer my baked potatoes.
