The Very Best Teeny Tiny Potatoes

Patricia Reitz

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, sometimes the most simple recipes end up being the best. Let’s take these itty bitty potatoes for example. A little butter, salt, and pepper (and a sprinkling of fresh herbs if you like), combined with my cooking technique, will result in the tastiest little orbs you’ve ever had. And the texture of these potatoes is simply amazing… the skins burst open in your mouth to reveal a super tender and creamy interior. It’s hard to describe how awesome they are so I hope you’ll give them a try.

Start by washing bite-size potatoes (1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter). Place the potatoes in a steam basket and place it in an instant pot. Add 1 cup of water.

Seal the instant pot and set it on “manual” or “high pressure” for 15 minutes, being sure the “keep warm” function is activated. When done, allow the pressure to release naturally (about 10 minutes) before opening the Instant Pot. You can also keep the IP closed for up to an hour and the potatoes will stay nice and warm.

When I’m ready to serve, I very carefully toss the potatoes with melted butter, salt, pepper, and if using, freshly chopped herbs, using a soft silicone or rubber spatula to prevent damaging the tender potatoes.

Bangers and Mash is a British meal traditionally made with mashed potatoes, but today I’ve opted to switch out the potatoes for mashed loaded cauliflower in order to make the meal more keto-friendly. Don’t get me wrong, potatoes are my all-time favorite vegetable, but for 1/5 the carb load, I don’t mind subbing cauliflower now and then. With yummy additions like cheese and bacon, I promise you won’t miss the spuds.
