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.
If my sister was here for this pot of deliciousness, she probably would have eaten this whole thing in one sitting. Her favorite foods are mashed potatoes and garlic- so combining them is an amazing match made in Heaven. These Pressure Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes are like nothing you’ve ever eaten before.
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. See, in that second pot we’re gonna be infusing that yummy garlic flavor into warm cream and melted butter creating the perfect garlic slurry to smash our potatoes with.

These potatoes were delicious. I will be cooking for a large crowd and would like to double or triple the recipe. Should the amount of chicken broth or cooking time increase?
How many servings is this? I’m making for 40 ppl, how many pounds should I cook?
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.
25 mnutes is way to much time for potatoes in a pressure cooker.
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.
