I’ll be honest, as a kid I hated stuffing.  I just didn’t appreciate it or I found it to be a pile of mush.

Stuffing Recipe in Instant Pot

Instant Pot Directions

I have traditionally made this recipe for Stuffing on the stove.  And it whips up quick and easy for sure.  I’ve included Stove Top Directions in the recipe card below.

However with my new found love of the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker II have learned ways to simplify my life an this is one of them.  

There is no argument that cooking stuffing on the stove is simple.  However, when I make large meals for family and friends I’m always short a burner or two as I’m typically trying to make gravy at the same time among other recipes. 

The Instant Pot allows me to set it and forget it.  No watching the pot for boiling water, no stirring, just set it and forget it and the 1 minute pressure cook time is super fast and perfect for my last minute cooking frenzy
