20 Instant Pot Dump Dinner Recipes

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.

Freezer Cooking with Your Instant Pot

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.
