Pressure Cooker Thanksgiving Recipes

Pressure Cooker Turkey Breast recipe

Turkey breast cooked in the pressure cooker is super moist and tender with only a 30 minute cook time. If you’re having a huge crowd, you could cook a turkey in the oven and a turkey breast in the pressure cooker.

Stuffing "baked" in the pressure cooker from Pressure Cooking Today

Stuffing quickly “baked” in the pressure cooker and then crisped up in the oven before serving. Having it shaped in a bundt pan gives you lots of crispy edges, which my family loves.

Creamy Mashed Potatoes – steaming the potatoes in the Pressure Cooker is the best way to cook potatoes for mashing. I haven’t cooked them any other way since I started pressure cooking.

Pressure-Cooker-Sweet-Potato-Casserole-Pressure-Cooking-Today

Creamy sweet potatoes dressed up for Thanksgiving with a sweet, crunchy brown sugar pecan topping. This Sweet Potato Casserole has become a must have Thanksgiving side dish at my house.

Homemade Cranberry Jelly in a Pressure Cooker

Homemade Cranberry Jelly – a must have Thanksgiving side dish, is quick, easy, and better tasting when you make it at home.

Pumpkin Caramel Pecan Cheesecake from Pressure Cooking Today

Don’t forget about dessert. This rich, creamy Pumpkin Caramel Pecan Cheesecake is a great alternative to pumpkin pie.

Pressure-Cooker-Pumpkin-Pie-Pressure-Cooking-Today

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Pie has a classic pumpkin pie filling but in a crumbly Pecan Sandies cookie crust, and it’s “baked” in the electric pressure cooker instead of the oven. The perfect little size for a small crowd.

Pressure-Cooker-Key-Lime-Pie-Pressure-Cooking-Today

Or, if you’re looking for a dessert that’s less traditional, but one of my favorites, try this Key Lime Pie. It’s a tart, creamy key lime pie with a graham cracker crust “baked” in the pressure cooker, then served topped with some lightly sweetened whipped cream.

Turkey Stock Pressure Cooking Today

After the big feast, don’t through away the turkey carcass. Use it to make great tasting turkey stock.

In addition, you can also make turkey stock ahead of time and use it to make your stuffing and gravy.

Turkey Noodle Soup from Pressure Cooking Today

Use your turkey stock and leftover turkey to make turkey noodle soup.

Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup from Pressure Cooking Today

Or, instead of chicken, change it up and use turkey in this Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup.

Thanksgiving Planning Guides

To help you plan the big feast, I’ve update my Thanksgiving planning guide. It now includes two options.

The first is a guide for an All Pressure Cooker Thanksgiving for those of you without an oven, or who prefer not to use the oven. It gives you a detailed timeline of how to cook the entire meal in your pressure cooker.

The second Thanksgiving Planning Guide is a Pressure Cooker Assisted Thanksgiving Guide. This is the guide I use to make my Thanksgiving dinner stress free.

The Thanksgiving planning guide is a printable pdf.

Here are the links to all the recipes mentioned in the guides, including the ones on Barbara Bakes:
