1/2 cupbutter (1 stick), softened or cut into small cubes for quick melting
1/4 cup 2% milk
Instant Pot Instructions:
Place peeled potatoes into Instant Pot insert (they should form one layer on the bottom). Fill the IP with water until the potatoes are just covered (about 4 1/2 cups). Place the IP lid on, and make sure the steam release valve is sealed.
Cook on High Pressure for 10 minutes. Release the steam immediately, and carefully drain the water from the potatoes as soon as possible.
Let the potatoes cool for a couple minutes and then use a hand mixer with beater attachments to begin mashing. Add milk and butter, then mix on medium for about 2 minutes until the potatoes are smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Boil a large pot of salted water, add potatoes, and cook until fork tender, about 13-15 minutes. Drain water, and let the potatoes cool for a couple minutes.
