Instant Pot® Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

These cheesy mashed potatoes come together in the Instant Pot® for a Wisconsin twist on a holiday favorite.  Parmesan cheese adds a pleasant nutty flavor to this classic dish. 


1. Select sauté setting on Instant Pot® and set to high heat. Melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add garlic, cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
2. Select cancel setting. Add potatoes and water.
3. Cover and lock lid; ensure vent is closed per manufacturer’s directions. Select manual setting. Increase pressure to high; set time for 12 minutes.
4. Select cancel setting. Quick release pressure carefully, as directed by manufacturer.
5. Add cream and remaining butter. Mash potato mixture. Fold in Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with additional shredded Parmesan.
