Pressure Cooker Breakfast Casserole
We always like a good breakfast casserole around here!
Because we love all things Instant Pot, I thought it was due time that I create a recipe that could be made for breakfast.
This recipe is based off of our popular traditional sausage breakfast casserole. It’s absolutely delicious! You can easily mix up all the ingredients the night before and cook it in the morning…or you can make it to the day of. It’s super simple to throw together.
I used a 7″ springform pan from Fat Daddio’s for this. However, if you don’t have one (or you want to double the recipe), you could put it directly in the pot. Just make sure you spray it REALLY well. When I first made this recipe, I did it in the pot, and I guess I didn’t spray it well enough. It also seemed to collect liquid on the top – so you’ll just need to poor that out.
You can switch up this recipe however you want – add different vegetables, use bacon instead of sausage…whatever. It’s really a pretty adaptable recipe, and we really enjoyed it.
It is great when served with salsa on top – plus it gives it a little bit of color. Yum!
