1. Instant Pot Hard-Boiled Eggs
Our new favorite way to dish up breakfast for a crowd takes only seven minutes. (And if you're more of a soft-boiled eggs gal, set the timer for three.)
5. Caramelized Onion, Mushroom and Kale Quiche
Ditch the crust (but not the cheese) for a keto take on this breakfast staple. Tons of ricotta and cheddar make it super silky and creamy.
6. Classic Deviled Eggs
Having guests for brunch? It's not a breakfast party unless these little guys are being served. They're also keto-, paleo- and Whole30-approved.
7. Instant Pot Applesauce
Making this fruity snack is easier than you think. Dollop it on oatmeal, slather it on toast or just eat it straight out of the pot with a spoon. Or, take a page from latke's book and have it on hash browns or tater tots.
8. Easy Instant Pot Coffee Cake
Put a pot on, there's a warm cup of joe in your future. As if this wasn't sweet enough on its own, level up with caramel bits, diced apples and chopped pecans.
9. Instant Pot Yogurt
You’ll never want to buy the store-bought stuff again. Not only is making yogurt from scratch cheaper, but the finished product is waaaay creamier. Pass the granola.
10. Instant Pot Egg Bites Three Ways
This low-carb meal is packed with protein, low in carbs and a big help during stressful mornings. Flavors include gruyère, red pepper or pizza. Go nuts.
11. Instant Pot Keto Breakfast Casserole
Need an energy boost? This dish has you covered. Starring avocado, breakfast sausage and Monterey Jack cheese, this main substitutes grated broccoli stalks for hash browns.
12. Instant Pot Blueberry French Toast Bake
Start the morning with cream cheese-infused challah loaded with fresh blueberries and brown sugar cinnamon topping. The kids will be begging for a second slice.
13. Healing AIP Breakfast Porridge
AIP stands for the autoimmune protocol diet, which aims to detoxify the body from unwanted inflammation. Pack in tons of nutrients with squash, coconut, ginger, turmeric and chia seeds. Top with raw honey, tart cherries and yogurt.
14. Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Banana Bread
Why should cupcakes have all the fun? We're giving this banana loaf all the icing. Add small pieces of diced pineapple or shredded coconut for a tropical twist.
15. Instant Pot Apple Butter
Butter who? Consider this spreadable gem your toast's new best friend. You'll be wowed at all the yum five pounds of apples can make.
16. Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats with Pumpkin and Walnuts
Pumpkin is by no means off-limits until autumn. These oats get infused with pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon, making them a toasty, pie-inspired beginning to any day.
17. Healthy Mexican Loaded Sweet Potatoes with Lentils in Salsa Verde
Pile these high with avocado slices, cilantro, onions and cashew or sour cream. We see this nutrient-rich side rubbing shoulders with an omelet, huevos rancheros or an egg and cheese quesadilla.
18. Instant Pot Fruit Soup
Who says soup needs to be served hot? This chilled pick-me-up is what you'd get if a smoothie and yogurt had a delicious baby. Swap fruits to create new flavors, and sprinkle with chia seeds, granola and nuts, just like you would an açai bowl.
19. Instant Pot Coconut Milk Yogurt
This dairy-free starter doesn't get any simpler. The recipe takes a little longer than an instant (about 12 hours), but it'll be more than worth the wait.
20. Instant Pot Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
This is a lifesaving grab-and-go snack to have on hand for busy mornings, between practices and pre-dinner peckishness. They're also loaded with protein, thanks to eggs and Greek yogurt.
21. Instant Pot Deviled Eggs with Bacon, Cheddar and Chives
These salty, creamy handhelds will be all the rage whether you're serving them at a party or at late Sunday breakfast. Here's a tip: Make the eggs the night before to give you more one-on-one time with your coffee the morning of.
22. Instant Pot, Easy Apple Pie Oatmeal
If the kids are always asking to have dessert for breakfast, this is a happy compromise. The secret? Apple pie spice. The butter and brown sugar don't hurt, either.
23. Instant Pot Bread Pudding with Pecan Caramel Glaze
Don't change out of your PJs just yet. This breakfast calls for elastic waistbands all around. Transform hunks of challah bread into sticky, nutty bliss with from-scratch caramel and a whole lot of butter.
24. Creamy Instant Pot Grits with Cheddar and Jalapeño
If you haven't yet met this Southern staple, it's high time you did. And this recipe is pulling out all the stops: chopped bacon, heavy cream, sharp cheddar, cream cheese and jalapeños.
25. Instant Pot Reuben Frittata
Your fave deli sandwich just went rogue. Load your pressure cooker with eggs, pastrami, Swiss, diced potatoes and sauerkraut (corned beef sounds good to us, too) and serve with a slice of rye toast. The cherry on top, though, is the homemade Russian dressing.
26. Instant Pot Applesauce
Looking for a way to get the kids to eat their fruit? They'll have no idea this recipe has no added sugar. Use honeycrisp and Granny Smith apples for a mix of tart and sweet flavors.
27. Instant Pot Mini Blueberry Breakfast Cakes
We can picture it now: you curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee (yes, it's still hot) and a few of these. Whip up cinnamon vanilla honey or dairy-free vanilla cream to drizzle atop the cakes, or save yourself the work and eat them plain. We're all for it.
28. Instant Pot Banana Walnut Steel Cut Oatmeal
Your favorite muffin, now in bowl form. Use riper bananas for a little extra sweetness, or add honey or maple syrup if your bananas are underripe.
29. Tofu Jammy Egg Breakfast Bowl
Start the day with a punch of protein, fluffy rice and a savory egg. Top it off with ginger, scallions and sesame seeds for a professional finishing touch.
30. Guacamole Deviled Eggs
This retro bite is bringing the fiesta. If you've stayed away from deviled eggs in the past because you don't like mayo or mustard, these are for you. The filling is made with avocado and lime juice instead.
31. Pressure Cooker Instant Horchata
Getting out of bed will be a *little* less awful when this stuff is waiting for you in the kitchen. This Mexican drink is made with rice milk, sugar and cinnamon, so it's safe for dairy-free sleepyheads too. Pair it with French toast or waffles.
32. Tres Leches Croissant Bread Pudding
Like the traditional Latin cake of the same name, this recipe calls for soaking croissants in evaporated, sweetened condensed and whole milk until brown and caramelized. Warning: You just might have to go back to bed after a slice.
