Instant Pot Christmas Recipes

For Christmas dinner, why not tantalize your taste buds with a succulent Turkey Roast with Gravy, made especially for the Instant Pot? This meal is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, as it’s easy to prepare and requires no oven or stovetop. As an accompaniment, you can serve up my delicious Homemade Cornbread Stuffing. This combination of flavors will satisfy everyone’s cravings for a classic Christmas meal. To finish off the meal, enjoy a light and tangy Ambrosia Salad.

Instant Pot Pasta Recipes

There are plenty of delicious and comforting pasta dishes like Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta and my personal favorite, Cheesy Sausage Rigatoni. I enjoy using the pressure cooker to make these recipes even more convenient because it eliminates the need for a strainer, freeing up space on the kitchen sink during the holiday meal planning season.

Instant Pot Soup Recipes

Soups are a perfect meal plan option for keeping a cozy, comfortable temperature in your home. For those who like a bit of spice with their meal, Vanilla Jalapeno Corn Chowder is an excellent choice. The sweet, creamy flavor of the chowder is perfectly balanced by the spicy jalapenos for an unforgettable taste sensation. For those wanting to use up their leftover turkey from Christmas dinner, White Turkey Chili is a great meal plan option that will provide a comforting warmth. This flavor-packed chili recipe makes for a delicious and festive meal!

Instant Pot Holiday Side Dishes

This month’s meal plan offers a delicious selection of side dishes perfect for the current season. My Butternut Mac & Cheese is simply incredible – the creaminess of the cheese and the hint of sweetness from the squash make this meal a cozy, homemade meal without too much effort.

I also offer other sides that are perfect for the season, including Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potato Casserole, and Lemon Butter Broccoli. Dive into this meal plan and enjoy all of these delightful sides!
