  • 1/3 cup Butter Unsalted
  • 1/2 cup Onions Finely chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic Finely minced
  • 1/2 cup Celery Washed, Patted dry, Diced
  • 1/2 cup Carrots Washed, Peeled, Finely chopped
  • 1 cup Mushrooms Cleaned, Diced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp Poultry seasoning
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 1 bag Dry herb seasoned bread cubes 12 oz. bag
  • 1.5-2 cups Vegetable broth Low sodium
  • 1.5 cups Water


  • Add butter in an instant pot.
  • Turn on "Saute" mode.
  • When butter is melted, add onions, garlic, celery, carrots, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning, salt, pepper and saute for a few minutes until veggies are partially softened and excess liquid from mushrooms has evaporated.
  • Add bread cubes, 1.5 cups broth and toss to combine. Add more broth if you prefer a "wet" stuffing. It should be slightly moist but not soggy and soaking wet.
  • Transfer this mixture to a greased round 1.5-2 quart baking dish.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and keep aside.
  • Place a trivet/rack with handles inside the pressure cooker.
  • Pour water.
  • Place the baking dish on top of the trivet.
  • Put the lid on and turn the the valve to “Sealing.”
  • Select “Manual” mode and set the timer for 15 minutes.
  • When cook time is over, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes and then, turn valve to “Venting” and do a quick pressure release. 
  • Remove baking dish from pressure cooker very carefully.
  • Allow it to sit for 5 minutes at room temperature.
  • Optional step: Remove aluminum foil and transfer baking dish to oven and broil for 5 minutes or until top is golden brown. Enjoy!
