Thanksgiving is the best day of the year to stuff your face with all your favorite foods. But there is a downside to all that edible bounty — trying to find space in the oven and on the stove to actually cook everything in time for dinner. It can get downright stressful, but it doesn’t need to be.
Enter the Instant Pot. Not only can you set it up on an out-of-the-way counter so you can use the stovetop and oven for something else, but it also works fast. The intense pressure inside the pot cooks even ingredients like brown rice, sweet potatoes and squash in just minutes, so you can put them in a serving dish and quickly move on to making your next star side. You can even make dessert in your Instant Pot if you don’t feel like dealing with the trials and tribulations of rolling out the perfect piecrust.
These are the Instant Pot recipes you’ll want to have on hand when you start planning your Thanksgiving menu.
