10 Instant Pot Recipes for Thanksgiving Favorites

Thanksgiving isn’t the most difficult meal to prepare but there are lots of moving parts. To balance getting all the dishes cooked and timed just right to the table can be challenging when you have a giant bird in the oven. This year consider adding your Instant Pot to your tool chest for getting a hot and delicious Thanksgiving meal on the table. These are some of my favorite Thanksgiving Instant Pot Recipes.
