  • Instant Pot (or Pressure Cooker)
  • Oven Safe Pan that will fit in your Instant Pot
  • Trivet for Instant Pot


  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 1 cup apples diced
  • ¾ cup fresh mushrooms sliced
  • ½ teaspoon ground sage
  • teaspoon dried thyme
  • teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 10 ounces cubed seasoned stuffing store bought or homemade
  • 1 cup water


  • Push the SAUTE button and wait for the pot to heat up. Add butter to the bottom of the insert and let it melt.
  • Stir in celery, onion, apples, mushrooms, sage, thyme, and pepper. Saute for 2 minutes. Pour in chicken broth.
  • Add stuffing to a large bowl. Pour the chicken broth mixture on top of the stuffing and mix until completely combined.
  • Spray an oven safe pan that fits in your Instant Pot with non-stick cooking spray (I used a deep 7 inch cake pan that fits perfectly in my 6 quart Instant Pot). Carefully spoon in stuffing mixture, being sure to not pack it in tightly.
  • Clean out the insert of the Instant Pot, then place it back inside the Instant Pot. Pour 1 cup of water in the bottom and add the trivet inside of the insert. Place the pan on top of the trivet.
  • Place the lid on top, turn the valve to SEALING and press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button. Set the timer for 10 minutes.
  • When it is finished cooking, let it do a complete natural release, which will take about 15-20 minutes.
  • Serve as is or if you want a more golden top, place pan in the oven for a few minutes to brown the stuffing.


  • For this recipe it calls for the box stuffing cubes, but if you’d rather make your own from scratch you can always do that too! If you don’t have a recipe that you already use to make stuffing cubes, take a look at A Bountiful Kitchen’s bread cubes for stuffing recipe and use 10 ounces of that instead!
  • Once you take it out you can serve it as is, or place it in the oven for a few minutes and let the stuffing brown on top a bit.
