Why Use the Instant Pot at Christmas

The Instant Pot pressure cooker is a great tool to have on hand for the holidays. It can cook food quickly and deliciously, leaving you more time to enjoy with your guests instead of being stuck in the kitchen all day.

Also, it’s perfect for making large batches easily which is helpful when having a lot of people over!

Cooking Instant Pot Christmas sides can leave plenty of oven space for a large ham or turkey or work well alongside the slow cooker and crock pot.

It’s simply an extra tool to make Christmas dinner, incredibly easy as you save time making your favorite recipes.

Cooking Meat in the Instant Pot

One of the best Instant Pot recipes for Christmas is meat. Overcooking your turkey can leave it dry and bland, but that won’t happen when you cook with an Instant Pot!

You can easily find a lot of Christmas Instant Pot recipes for cooking turkey breast, ham, beef roast or other Christmas meats. Here are a few of our favorites:

Instant Pot Christmas Ham

Cooking an Instant Pot Christmas Ham in one thing I love to do and this tasty and delicious Instant Pot boneless ham recipe will be a real winner on the Christmas table.

My family love to have a ham every Christmas. In fact we love to add a mustard and honey glaze to our ham and place pineapples all around.

Instant Pot Christmas Ham is not only great on the dinner plate but it can make really tasty sandwiches and be used as a leftover in Potato And Ham Soup.

Instant Pot Turkey breast goes great with cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes and if there is any leftover turkey, it makes great sandwiches too!
