My Crazy Good Life’s Perfect Instant Pot Turkey Breast
If you’re already missing that scrumptious turkey dinner from Thanksgiving, you are not alone - and you don’t have to wait all day to enjoy it this time around! All you need is turkey, some spices, and a few herbs, and you’re on your way to a delicious meal. This recipe serves 20, so you can make it as recommended and save the leftovers, or if your celebrations are a bit smaller this year you may cut the recipe in half. Recipe here.
Pressure Luck’s Instant Pot Potato Pancake Pillows (Latkes)
Speaking of small get-togethers, this lightened up version of a classic holiday favorite yields six servings. This one does call for some time in the oven as well, but only for 10 to 15 minutes (give or take as ovens will vary) to give your potato pancake pillows (say that five times fast!) a golden brown exterior - which is definitely worth the extra step. Don’t forget applesauce and sour cream for the side! Recipe here.
Created By Diane’s Instant Pot Creamy Mac and Cheese
Two words to describe this recipe: quick and easy. You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this, either, and you probably have everything you need on hand already. You can use cheddar cheese if you want a more traditional mac and cheese, or a combination of any other cheeses that you like. This is one recipe that you should plan to stay near the kitchen, though, as the cook time is very short and you don’t want your pasta to get mushy. Recipe here.
Natasha’s Kitchen’s Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes Recipe
This recipe will become your new one-pot shop, go-to mashed potatoes recipe all year round. It’s recommended that you use your Instant Pot’s metal trivet in this recipe, so make sure you dig that out if you haven’t used it in a while (or ever!). These potatoes call for low-sodium chicken broth, but you can use water if you don’t have any on hand. Recipe here.
Melanie Cooks’s Instant Pot Cornbread Recipe
Is it a side dish or a dessert? That’s up to you. But what’s not up for debate is the value of a delicious, mouth-watering piece of corn bread to round out any festive meal. And there’s no need to reinvent the wheel here - according to Melanie Cooks, the Instant Pot version of this recipe was born from the traditional oven version. Aside from the cornmeal, there’s a good chance you already have all the ingredients you need for this recipe in your pantry. The only other thing you need is a round Pyrex bowl for cooking.
