Knock, knock! Who’s there? The holidays! Are you freaking out yet? Stay calm, relax and just breathe. The holidays are meant to be a time of year when we gather around the house with our friends and family and enjoy each others company. Unfortunately, that rarely happens. We tend to stress ourselves out with trying to make everything perfect. Believe me, you’re not alone. However, here are some ideas to make it a bit easier on us.
One of those ways I make the holidays easier on me is my handy-dandy Instant Pots (all 4 of them!). I use my Instant Pots to prepare all my holiday dishes, including the turkey. Sometimes my husband deep fries our turkey though, now that he’s retired from the military, and he allows no one else to touch it when he is in charge. He reminds me of the dad from A Christmas Story; he’s a self-described turkey connoisseur.
You may be asking yourself, “What could I possibly make in Instant Pot that could be good for the holidays?!” No worries. Here’s where I come in to help!
This month, we are covering the 30 best holiday dishes for the Instant Pot. This is an exhaustive list and I know you’ll find the perfect recipes here to help make your holiday meals as perfect as possible; at least food wise.
