Today I had every intention on just sitting here on the couch, finding something to binge watch and doing absolutely nothing, like I didn’t even want to have to put on a bra today, type of nothing but, all the sudden I had this awesome craving for TGI Fridays Mashed Potatoes. Howwwwwever, I did not want to go to the restaurant, nor pay the price for one serving when I could make 6 to 8 servings myself for probably the same amount or less. The Copycat TGI Fridays Mashed Potatoes ingredients were super cheap if you ask me.

So guess what people, I put on a bra, and headed off to the store in preparation to make Copycat TGI Fridays Mashed Potatoes in The Instant Pot. The Tgi Fridays loaded mashed potatoes are probably my favorite thing when going to the restaurant. They are so cheesy, creamy and delicious. I usually get double mash lol.

I went to Walmart because I also needed keys made. You would think 2 teenagers could keep up with their house key, but nope they needed a new one.
Most of the ingredients I already had on hand for this TGI Fridays Mashed Potatoes recipe. I did need more heavy cream, I like to put it in my coffee, and I rarely buy potatoes, let alone red potatoes so I needed those.
Once I got everything I needed, I headed home and pulled out my magic machine, you know the Instant Pot.
