Instant Pot Parmesan Potatoes Recipe

Using my pressure cooker is one of the easiest ways to save time when making dinner. I love mashed potatoes but making them the old fashioned way takes too much time during the week. 

We love making this recipe during the holidays because it doesn’t use one of the burners on the stove. We always have more dishes than we have room for. 

You can make this recipe in your pressure cooker in just a few minutes. So, it’s easy to wait until right before you serve dinner to make it.

Best potatoes for the Instant Pot

You can use any type that you want to. But, when making mashed potatoes, it’s really easiest to use something with a very thin skin like Yukon Gold. If you don’t use that variety, you might want to peel them before you cook them. 

Chunky or smooth?

This recipe will make smooth Instant Pot parmesan potatoes because they are peeled. If you prefer yours to be chunky, you can leave the skin on. Just be sure to wash them well.

What do I need to make this recipe?

  • Instant Pot or another brand of pressure cooker
  • Strainer
  • Spatula

How much does this make?

This Instant Pot parmesan potatoes recipe uses 5 pounds of potatoes. We generally prepare it this way for the holidays when the rest of the family will be over. 

If you’re having fewer people for dinner, you can adjust the amount that you make. This recipe as printed will feed about 10 people.

How do you make mashed potatoes in a pressure cooker?

This recipe doesn’t get much easier. You will need to peel the potatoes and slice them into uniform pieces. You will cover them with water and then cook them until done.

After that, you will drain them and mash them. Finally, add the remaining ingredients and stir until creamy and well combined.

If you want a traditional recipe rather than an Instant Pot recipe, you might want to try my gouda mashed potatoes next.

What should I serve this with? 

These Instant Pot parmesan potatoes go well with almost any type of meat from a roast to a steak. Try it with these.

How should I store leftovers?

Just place the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will stay good for 3 to 5 days.

One of our favorite ways to re-use leftover mashed potatoes is to serve them with gravy and chopped turkey or chicken over the top. It’s one of our favorite Thanksgiving leftover recipes.

  5. I do love mashed potatoes but do not make them often enough.  I usually just use butter and salt, but this is a terrific way to prepare them.  I am sure the Parmesan adds a delicious flavor too.
