Cranberry Stuffing Instant Pot Recipe

Cranberry Stuffing Instant Pot Recipe

Thanksgiving is this weekend in Canada. It still feels weird to me to celebrate in early October instead of the end of November. However, I feel like being Thankful never hurt anyone so maybe I’ll celebrate TWICE. Celebration is all about family friends and food. My Canadian family taught me that bread stuffing can be just as yummy as my cornbread dressing. This year, I’ve learned you can make stuffing in the IP too! Yep, yummy cranberry stuffing made right in the Instant Pot!

Cranberry Stuffing Instant Pot Recipe

Ingredients:
12 ounces dry bread cubed for stuffing
½ cup cranberries
½ cup pecans
2 cups broth (vegetable or chicken)
½ cup butter, salted
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups water- for the instant pot

Instructions:

Stuffing Ingredients

Combine dry bread cubes, cranberries and pecans.

Adding broth to cranberry stuffing

Add broth.

Celery, onions and butter in the IP

Turn Instant Pot to saute.  Add the onion, celery and butter. Saute together for 2-3 minutes.

Add spices to onions and celery

Add in the seasonings and continue sauting for another minute.

Mix cranberry stuffing together

Add the sauted mixture to the cubed stuffing mixture.

Cranberry Stuffing before cooking

Stir to combine.

Stuffing Ready for the IP

Transfer into a metal Instant Pot pan, such as a stackable pan set (in this case you’d be able to cook two sides at once). Cover pan with lid or foil.

Cooking pot in pot in the IP

Add 1 ½ cups of water to the inner pot of the Instant Pot. Lower the pan with the stuffing in to the inner pot on a trivet. Close the instant pot lid and turn pressure valve to seal. Press the manual button and use the plus button to set to cook for 20 minutes. Once the pot has come to pressure and the timer has counted down, move the pressure valve to vent for a quick pressure release.

Cranberry Stuffing all done
