Instant Pot Turkey
Admittedly, I’ve been pretty happy with our halloween arrangement the last several years. Hubby chaperones any littles that still want to go trick or treating [the teen isn’t as thrilled about it as I am anymore.] I stay home, pass out the goods, and awwww over all the cuties that come to our door. My said teen is in charge of keeping our 70lb Olde English Bulldogge from running out into the night.
When the evening festivities are over, I totally ransack the kids’ stash of goodies when they get home. They know the drill well.
Hand over the Reeses Peanut Butter Cups or else it’s nothing but beets for dinner tomorrow. I’m definitely not winning any Best Mom of the Year awards.
But let me try to redeem myself a little, if that’s possible. I do make entire turkey breasts for dinner even when it’s not Thanksgiving.
Shall I take my bow now, or wait for later?
For reals – the entire family gobbles up this Instant Pot Turkey Breast with Gravy. And it really is so healthy, quick, and delicious that you’ll use it well beyond November…
Tips for How to make Turkey in the Instant Pot (with Gravy, too)
- Either a 6qt sor 8qt Instant Pot will work. I own the 8qt and love it. It allows me the extra room if I need it, and it doesn’t run as much risk of getting over-filled.
- If your turkey breast is frozen, be sure to take it out to defrost a few nights beforehand. Also don’t forget to remove the gravy packet, if it came with one.
- It may seem kinda icky, but do evenly press seasonings under the skin all throughout. I use clean hands (gloves work if you really need it) to evenly press half the seasoning mixture onto the turkey, underneath the skin. This allows the turkey breast to soak up all the savory flavors. The other half of the seasoning mixture can go on top of the skin.
- If you care about how the turkey skin looks, you can place breast under broiler for a bit just to get that beautiful browning. If you aren’t going to eat the skin and don’t care what it looks like, you can totally skip the broil part.
