  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Fill the Instant Pot with 1 cup of water.
  2. Place the steamer trivet in the pot and add quartered potatoes in the steamer trivet.
  3. Close the lid. Cook in high pressure for 8 minutes, then quick release.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, heat a small sauce pan over medium heat. Melt the butter and add the garlic. Add a pinch of salt. Sauté the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant and golden in color. Add the milk and deglaze the pan. Remove mixture from heat when it is hot.
