  • Spatula or wooden spoon
  • Dish that fits into your Instant Pot
  • Aluminum foil


  • 1 lb. sage sausage
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 12 Hawaiian rolls 1 package, chopped into large chunks
  • 8 Tbsp. butter 1 stick
  • 1 ¼ cups turkey broth or chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp. poultry seasoning

  • Add 1 lb. sage sausage to the pan. Cook until it browns, stirring continuously to break it up into chunks, about 4 minutes.

  • Once mixed, spoon your mixture into a greased dish small enough to fit into your Instant Pot. Cover the dish tightly with foil. Create an aluminum foil sling by folding one long piece of foil into a long strip. This will make it easy to lift the dish out of the pot when done cooking.

  • Pour 1 cup of water into your Instant Pot and add your trivet. Place the dish with the stuffing on top with the foil sling wrapped around it. Close the lid and cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.

  • For a crunchy top on your Instant Pot Sage Sausage Stuffing, place under your oven broiler for 1 minute!
  • Creating a sling out of foil makes it much easier to lift your dish out of the pot once it’s done cooking. Fold a piece of foil into a long strip to create the sling, then wrap it under the bottom of the foil-wrapped dish before placing into the pot to cook.
  • Gently stir when adding the Hawaiian rolls. You don’t want it to mix through so that it crumbles too much or becomes mushy!
