Holiday Dishes for the Instant Pot

Last Updated on May 22, 2019

The holidays are upon us which means things are about to get crazy busy! That means its time to think outside the box and IN the pot… the Instant Pot, that is!

I enjoy making meals in the Instant Pot all year, but this time of year I really love using it for holiday meals. Plus, it’s such a versatile appliance and you can make so many different things in it from main course to side dishes to desserts!

This year, I’m compiling a list of my favorite recipes to make for the holidays! Enjoy!
