Russet potatoes

Chicken broth

Salted butter

Sea salt


Salt and pepper

Cloves Garlic


Add the chicken broth and potatoes to the Instant Pot. Salt the potatoes liberally, and pressure cook on HI pressure for 15 minutes, and quick release the pressure once done.

While the potatoes are pressure cooking, brown the butter in a small skillet. Place the butter in a skillet over medium heat.

Add the cream, garlic cloves and sage leaves to a sauce pan or a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the cream mixture on the stove over medium heat, or in the microwave, until the cream is hot.

Once you have released the pressure from the Instant Pot, turn on the sauté setting to HI, to remove some of the extra moisture from the potatoes. Once the potatoes are mostly dry, roughly mash the potatoes until smooth.

Little by little, add the warm cream mix to the potatoes. Fold in using a spoon or rubber spatula, until they are completely smooth. Taste, and season with salt and pepper if needed.
