  • Mix seasonings and salt in small bowl; set aside. Pat turkey dry with clean paper towels. Rub 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mixture under skin of turkey.

  • Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in Instant Pot on SAUTÉ setting. Place turkey, skin side down, in pot. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until skin is browned all over, turning occasionally. Remove turkey from pot. Add potatoes to pot. Pour in stock.

  • Place turkey, skin side up, on top of potatoes. Sprinkle with remaining seasoning mixture. Close lid. Set VALVE to SEAL.

  • Set to cook for 30 minutes on MEAT/STEW function or until turkey is cooked through (internal temperature reaches 165°F). Vent pot to quick release pressure. Open lid once pressure inside has completely released. (Check manufacturer’s manual for safe operating directions.)

  • Transfer turkey to platter or carving board. Let stand about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, transfer potatoes to a serving bowl using a slotted spoon. Reserve turkey drippings to make Perfect Turkey Gravy, if desired.

  • Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to potatoes and gently smash; stir to mix. Slice turkey and serve with smashed potatoes and Perfect Turkey Gravy, if desired.

  • Perfect Turkey Gravy: Remove turkey drippings from pot; measure 1 cup. Mix 2 packages McCormick® Turkey Gravy Mix and 1/4 cup flour in pot. Gradually stir in 3 cups water and 1 cup turkey drippings with wire whisk until smooth. Stirring frequently, cook on sauté setting until gravy comes to boil. Reduce heat to warm setting; simmer 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. (Gravy will continue to thicken upon standing.)
