Instant Pot Holiday Challenge
When I started talking about making my entire Thanksgiving dinner in the Instant Pot this year, I had a few people laugh as they imagined my entire kitchen covered in Instant Pots. Actually, I only have two Instant Pots, both the 3-quart and the 6-quart.
The key to making several dishes in the Instant Pot, or even the entire meal, is to plan ahead. Here’s a schedule for how it could work.
2 days before the holiday
Day before the holiday
Day of the holiday
- Instant Pot Turkey Breast with Gravy
- Instant Pot Stuffing
- Instant Pot Cooked Cabbage
- Plus, re-heat sides cooked the day or days before!
Day or days after the holiday
- Instant Pot Cottage Pie to use up leftover mashed potatoes
- Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Custard to use up any leftover pumpkin pie puree
See how easy it can be? I am so over stressing about how many side dishes I have to make, I am going to be following this schedule this year. Are you in?!

Questions About Healthy Cooking in the Instant Pot
What is an Instant Pot? The Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker. It’s different than the stovetop pressure cookers our mothers and grandmothers remember. Those were scary! The Instant Pot is safe and comes with pre-programmed settings, making it so easy to use.
How does an Instant Pot differ from a slow-cooker? They are two completely different ways of cooking. The Instant Pot uses steam and pressure to cook food, where a slow-cooker uses heat over a long period of time.
What is so special about the Instant Pot? The Instant Pot is the highest quality brand of electric pressure cooker that I’ve used. I’ve tried two other brands, but ended up giving them away because they were cheaply made and didn’t stand up to heavy use.
