The Best Instant Pot Mashed Potato Recipe Ever (Holy YUM!)

When I was growing up, meals that consisted of meat and potatoes were a typical dinner for us. One of my favorite ways to eat potatoes is when they’re mashed, and to this day, I still make it a point to enjoy mashed potatoes at least once every week or two. I stumbled upon this recipe recently and it was such a nice change to my usual way of preparing mashed potatoes.
