Calories 106kcal


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup (50g) red onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup (75g) celery chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 thyme sprig
  • 4 cups (360g) bread cubes
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable stock


  • Place butter in the bottom of the Instant Pot insert, set to sauté mode, and stir until melted.
  • Add in the onion and celery and sauté for 5 minutes, or until tender. Then add garlic and Italian seasoning and sauté for another 30 seconds or so.
  • Turn off, add the bread cubes and vegetable stock, stirring to combine. Top with the thyme sprig.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, turn the valve to sealing position, and set to high/manual pressure for 2 minutes.
  • Once done, perform a complete quick pressure release, open and fluff the stuffing, then serve.


  • This recipe comes out best if you use stale bread. If you don't have stale bread on hand, check out the section below for making 'stale' bread cubes.
  • Make sure to fluff your pressure cooker stuffing before serving, otherwise, it will be a solidified bread mass, and not fluffy and delicious as you’d expect from a great stuffing recipe.
  • The cooking time listed does not include time to come up to pressure or for the pressure to release.
