Irish potatoes - the perfect side dish for St. Patrick's Day - finished in a flash in the pressure cooker.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds Yukon gold or russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 4 green onions, trimmed and sliced thin
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup milk


  1. Prep the potatoes: Melt the butter over medium heat in the pressure cooker pot. As soon as the butter stops foaming, add the potato slices and green onions. Sprinkle with the salt and toss to coat with the butter. Pour the milk into the pot and stir.
  2. Pressure cook the potatoes: Lock the lid on the pressure cooker and cook at high pressure for 7 minutes in an electric pressure cooker, 6 minutes in a stovetop PC. Quick release the pressure, then open the lid away from you. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher, adding a little more milk if they're too thick. Taste and add more salt if necessary.


  • For regular mashed potatoes, skip the green onions. The rest of the recipe works the same.
  • No pressure cooker? Put the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water, add 1 tablespoon of salt, and bring to a boil. Boil until the potatoes can be pierced by the tip of a paring knife, about 10 minutes, then drain. While the potatoes are boiling, put the butter, milk, and green onions in a small saucepan, and simmer over medium heat until the butter melts. Put the drained potatoes back in the large saucepan, pour the milk, butter, and green onions in, and mash. Add more milk if the potatoes are too thick, and taste for salt.
  • A toast for St. Patrick's day: May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.
