Who’s ready for Thanksgiving? I can tell you that this year it will be SO MUCH easier with my Instant Pot. I can basically cook an entire Thanksgiving meal with just my Instant Pot. How is that possible? I’ll share some amazing Instant Pot Thanksgiving Recipes below with real food, gluten-free and Paleo options.

First, let’s talk about the Instant Pot. It’s a 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Cooker – including a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, saute/browning, yogurt maker, steamer and warmer. Plus, it has a stainless steel cooking pot and steam rack – LOVE that!

That means you can make everything from Instant Pot turkey to mashed potatoes to corn on-the-cob to pumpkin pie with this electric pressure cooker.
