As an adult, there are very few things I like as much as garlic. Don’t get me wrong, I love food. I am a total food fanatic. But for me, garlic is on a totally new level. You know how on all those fancy cooking shows they talk about black truffles? I’ve never had truffles, but I imagine that it’s pretty equivalent to garlic.

Cooking potatoes in the pressure cooker only takes about 25 minutes- no more hovering over the stove! Plus, to add an extra level of flavor, we’re cooking the potatoes in chicken broth. Not only will the potatoes have a richer taste and smoother texture, but if you do it just right, there’s no straining involved.

Considering I’m using two pots for this recipe, I guess I’m kind of cheating. But I promise that the extra pot to wash is totally worth it.

  1. How many servings is this? I’m making for 40 ppl, how many pounds should I cook?

    1. As a side dish at a gathering like Thanksgiving, where there would be many other sides as well, I would say that this recipe could probably feed 10. However, if it is the main side, I’d say about 7-8. You could do the recipe x’s 4, but it would depend on a few factors. The size of your pressure cooker and the amount that it would fit would be a major concern. You could possibly do it with an 8 qt.

  2. 25 mnutes is way to much time for potatoes in a pressure cooker.

    1. Hi Larry! I completely agree! It looks like there was an error in our recipe and a “2” was added in front of that “5”. Those poor taters would be mush! Thanks so much for pointing that out! We have adjusted accordingly and the recipe is now correct.
