Can I Make Extra Garlic and Rosemary Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

Yes, you can. Just don’t go over the max line in the pot. But you can add more or less just keep the cooking time the same. 

If you add more potatoes if just could take the Instant Pot longer to come to pressure is all.

What Are The Best Potatoes for Mashed Potatoes

You want to reach for a potato that is high in starch. The top two potatoes are the Yukon Gold of russet potato. 

These two varieties will give you a smooth and creamy texture you want. Red potatoes, for instance, are overly wavy and can break down quickly leaving a less appealing texture.

Why Do Mashed Potatoes Get Gummy

This is something I see people complain of often. Gummy potatoes are a result of over mashing your potatoes. Each time you mash potatoes it releases the natural starches in the potatoes. 

If you over mash it begins to gum up. So aim to not overmix your potatoes. 

 

How to Store Leftover Mashed Potatoes

Place any potatoes in an airtight container and tuck into the fridge. You can store potatoes for 3-5 days in the fridge.

 

Warm them up by the plate in the microwave or warm on the stovetop. If you do stovetop consider adding a splash of chicken stock to help potatoes not be overly thick. Stir often or they will burn.
