Instant Pot Thanksgiving Recipes just may be your new holiday tradition! I love love love my Instant Pots – yes I have 2. My personal favorite is the Instant Pot Ultra but they’re all great! They deliver delicious food in a fraction of the time that conventional cooking takes. I get flavorful, moist and yummy foods; no waiting 8 hours like a crock pot.
And this is NOT your mama’s pressure cooker! I know some people are fearful of pressure cooking but the IP takes away all your fears – it is as easy as plug and play. 😉 Mine rarely leave the counter unless it is to go to a pot luck.
Amazing Instant Pot Thanksgiving Recipes You Can Try This Year
This year I went searching for the best Thanksgiving recipes for the Instant Pot. Why not bring some new traditions into the mix this year, right? So whether you want try one or do the whole stinking meal in your IP, I hope this list of yum helps you out.
I’m sure one of these 25 delicious recipes will be just what you’re looking for! I encourage you to give the Instant Pot Thanksgiving recipes a try, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. I have used the IP for both savory and sweet Thanksgiving recipes and it has been spot on for me.
Why Use The Instant Pot for Thanksgiving This Year?
I don’t know about you but I can spend the entire day cooking for Thanksgiving and miss out on a lot of the family fun! The Instant Pot can reduce cooking time, not to mention “watching” time to a mere fraction of traditional recipes. But I am not going to sacrifice flavor when I pressure cook some of my favorite recipes; in fact often the meal comes out with more intense flavors!
I Don’t Have an Instant Pot!
I know it isn’t in everyone’s budget to run out and buy and Instant Pot…but if you can, get one now! This is the BIGGEST life saver appliance I own (I have 2) and it almost never leaves my kitchen counter. But if you have a stove top pressure cooker or even a pressure canner you can adjust these recipes for that as well – and still save yourself some time.
