10 Thanksgiving Instant Pot Recipes


ButterBall Turkey Giveaway


Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Every year we buy a Butterball Turkey it seems to be much juicier than any other Turkey without any extra work like basting or brining the bird.

Butterball conducted its first-ever consumer survey this year for a pulse on Thanksgiving preppers’ expectations and realities when it comes to one of the most important meals of the year. The survey found:

  • Two-thirds of Americans rank Thanksgiving as one of their favorite holidays.
  • Two-thirds of Americans like to incorporate new traditions into their celebrations…many of which include cooking up new and different recipes for loved ones to enjoy.
  • Out of all things Thanksgiving preparers cook up, they’re most proud of the turkey. And 88 percent prep it the old-school way: in an oven.
  • 84 percent feel excited about preparing the meal, and 74 percent of Americans don’t expect Thanksgiving to be perfect.
  • It’s the turkey!  Despite the overall positivity around the holiday, first-time millennial preparers are still feeling the pressure. Eight in 10 first-time cooks worry about cooking the turkey correctly.  This number drops among experienced preparers, but still 43% worry about getting it right.


I have to say I agree. I make my turkey in the oven and I use my instant pot for my side dishes. Here is my top 10 Thanksgiving Instant Pot Recipes.
