Creamy Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are the perfect side dish for weeknight dinners or special occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas, or date nights-in. All you need is 5 ingredients!
Place the trivet in the bottom of the Instant Pot and add in 1 cup of water (for steaming). Place all of the gold potatoes on top of the trivet in the Instant Pot.
Twist on the lid and set the valve on the lid to SEAL. Cook on manual high pressure for 12 minutes.
Carefully drain the remaining water out of the bottom of the Instant Pot and remove the trivet. Add in the butter, milk, sour cream, salt and garlic powder and mash with a large fork, potato masher or potato ricer until just mashed.
Season with additional salt to taste, then serve immediately while warm.
