Creamy garlic mashed potatoes topped with gruyere cheese. Tastes like a million bucks!


  • 56 medium red or russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated gruyere or fontina cheese
  • Chives, for garnish


  1. Wash potatoes and, if desired, peel them (I kept my peels on). Add 1 ½ cups of water into bottom of Instant Pot. Place a trivet in the bottom of the pot. Place potatoes on top of trivet. 
  2. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 20 minutes. When time is up move valve to venting. Remove the lid. 
  3. Add the hot potatoes to a mixing bowl. Add in the butter, cream, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Use a hand mixer to mix the potatoes until creamy (do not overmix or they’ll turn out gummy). You can also mash the potatoes with a potato masher.
  4. Spread the potatoes into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Sprinkle the cheese on top. 
  5. Use an air fryer lid to bake at 350° F for 7 minutes until cheese starts to brown. 
  6. Garnish with chives and serve.
