The past couple of years, my Instant Pot has been a real hero during my Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.

There are so many reasons why I love my Instant Pot for holiday feasts including:

  • it can cook certain foods quicker than your stove or oven
  • you don't have to worry about anything boiling over
  • the keep warm setting means you can prep some meals ahead of time
  • it saves room in your oven and on your stove top

While I have mainly cooked Instant Pot Thanksgiving sides, there are an amazing number of ways you can use it to make Thanksgiving appetizers, main courses, desserts and drinks, so today we're sharing a bit of everything.

Which Instant Pot do I recommend?

  • I love this 6 quart Instant Pot for my family of four
  • this 8 quart Instant Pot is great to make larger batches or for larger families

Without further ado, let's check out these Instant Pot Thanksgiving recipes!
