My husband and I love hosting Thanksgiving every year and it has become really special to us after buying our house a little over six years ago.
Each year we spend time considering what new Thanksgiving recipes we want to try and what traditional favorites we want to keep on our menu.
We also take time planning and prepping dinner so the process can be as simple and fuss free as possible. The point of Thanksgiving is not to be stressed!
While we love to cook, having a few shortcuts up our sleeve makes the holiday dinner prep so much more enjoyable. Enter the Instant Pot.
These Instant Pot Thanksgiving recipes are not only delicious, but they will save you so much time. Here are 15 to give a try this year!

Made with an Asian inspired tangy, sweet sauce, the flavor is incredible.
