Mashed potatoes. One of the most quintessential Thanksgiving side dishes.

Some people like them whipped with peas and onions, some people like them with lumps, and some people like them in the form of tots. But then again, this is just based on Phoebe, Ross and Joey.

No, but really, we all have a different preference on how we want our mashed potatoes, and it’s very hard to please everyone. Except these mashed potatoes will truly please EVERYONE.

For starters, it’s made in the IP, pressure cooked in just 10 min. 10 WHOLE MINUTES. That is it. (No cold water needed here – the cold water that takes 20 long minutes to come to a rolling boil!)

Once your potatoes are perfectly softened, you can add all your fix-ins: milk, sour cream, Ranch Seasoning and all the butter your heart desires.

The end result: perfectly creamy, fluffy and rich. Serve with additional melted butter on top (because why not) and chopped chives.
