These Instant Pot Thanksgiving recipes are quick and easy so that you can save time on turkey day.
I’m obsessed with my Instant Pot! I was extremely skeptical when they first came out. I couldn’t imagine meat and other items being done in just minutes. To me, it seems like food wouldn’t get done and then we would be ordering out instead.
Then one day while we are the store, I broke down and got one just to see if it really worked like everyone was saying. I honestly thought the food would be mushy, undercooked, or not edible.
It wasn’t any of those things! It was delicious and perfectly cooked. In 6 minutes we had these delicious potatoes. Six minutes y’all, that’s it!
