One favorite food in the Prater household is mashed potatoes! What’s not to love about a perfectly whipped bowl of spuds? I’ve eaten mashed potatoes as a stand alone meal numerous times in sickness and in health. I have also paired it with some wonderful dishes. Mashed potatoes accompany Ribs, meatloaf, turkey & gravy very well!

This recipe is perfect to accompany your meal anytime of the year. But since I’m writing this ahead of Thanksgiving, this could be a perfect dish to add into your meal plan! 

This year, I have four Instant Pots I can put to use now. You read that correctly, but don’t get stuck on the number. With four of these magical gadgets, our Thanksgiving meal can pretty much be an Instant Pot meal. If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, let’s pause for a minute and allow time for you to head on over to Amazon and order one. Seriously, I’ll wait. You’ll want one of these magical contraptions before reading the following recipes. 

If you don’t have an instant pot well that is the first thing you need to fix! I get mine from Amazon because I am lazy like that. They come RIGHT to the door!

I have many wonderful recipes to include in your meal plan for Thanksgiving and also Christmas for that matter. Here is a brief glance at some of the tasties:

All that is missing from this list of recipes is mashed potatoes. Who can have Thanksgiving without them?! I know I can’t nor can my husband and especially not my youngest son! This recipe is incredibly easy to fix and you will not go wrong following it. Enjoy!

Ingredients

 
  • 3lbs russet potatoes peeled, rinsed and diced
  • 1 stick butter, melted

4. NOTE* if your potatoes are not fully cooked, run them for another 5 minutes on the same setting without adding more water. Water content in potatoes vary causing cook time to vary as well. 
 
5. Wipe out the instant pot and set to SAUTE. 
6. Cook bacon until crispy. Drain excess grease. Remove bacon.
