Mashed Potatoes & The Immersion Blender


Run Buy It Now! An immersion blender. Mrs and I are messing around with Thanksgiving food today. I made mashed potatoes in the instant pot. The immersion blender creamed the potatoes instantly with no effort.
Here is the one I bought.

Hamilton Beach 59765 Immersion Hand Blender with Blending Wand, Whisk and 3-Cup Food Chopping Bowl, 3-Piece, Silver and Stainless Steel

Regular Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes


Four large baking potatoes halves then 1/2 chunks

1/2 stick of butter

1/4 cup of sour cream

Salt & pepper


  • Throw potatoes in instant pot
  • Cover with water
  • High for 10 minutes, instant release
  • Dump water, return to instant pot
  • I put most of the butter on the bottom to melt
  • Immersion blender the taters
  • Sour cream, salt and pepper to taste

Suffering may be an important of the delicious flavors we enjoy during the holidays. Try mashing your potatoes by hand if you need more flavor.

Plant based mashed potatoes

  • Steal a cup and half of potatoes from above
  • Tablespoon of minced garlic from the Costcos
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Next time I would probably throw the garlic in a skillet first, add some green onions.
