What are Dump Dinners?
Dump Dinners are meals that you dump everything into one pot and press cook. Originally Dump Dinners were created for the Crock Pot, but here at The Holy Mess we are a bit Instant Pot obsessed because it’s so much faster than the slow cooker.
These pressure cooker dump recipes can be made right before dinner or they can be used for Meal Prep with your Instant Pot.
Instant Pot Meal Prep Recipes
Dump Dinners can be made fresh and they also work amazingly well frozen. I’ve been freezer cooking for years and have been blown away by how it’s even easier with Instant Pot meals because you can cook foods right from frozen so there is no need to thaw.
I’ve found that I can so much more easily stick to a healthy diet when I have healthy instant pot meals like these prepped in advance and ready to go. Click here to read more about how to meal prep with your Instant Pot.
