IP sped recipes

Hey friends!!


I recently purchased an Instant Pot (I.P.) and have fallen in love with the quick and efficient method of cooking! I can't tell you how many times I've messed up a stove top meal and been so completely frustrated.  I would much rather cook with an oven but in Texas summer heat...I hate to turn it on.

For those of you who don't know, the I.P. is a pressure cooker.  Think of it as a slow cooker on steroids! It cooks perfect food consistently! A whole frozen chicken...BAM! Broth..BAM! Hard boiled eggs...BAM! Cheese cake, yogurt, soup...BAM, BAM, BAM!! You get the picture... It's AMAZING!

After being completely reliant on my I.P. for the first few weeks, I decided to try it during E.S.Y. (extended summer school). We made popcorn and my kids loved it!!! There are quite a few kid friendly recipes out there that are really easy and yummy in the Instant Pot.  I have included a freebie to the Popcorn recipe for you to try with your kiddos!

I would talk with your kiddos before hand and let them know the Instant Pot uses pressure and it is hot, they may hear or see steam and there is nothing to be alarmed about.  The first few times at home, the steam and pressure settings were a little intimidating.

If you don't have one, I purchased mine off Amazon and it comes with 2 spoons and a steam rack. Another tip-before using it at school, you will want to complete a water test and become familiar with the I.P. recipe before taking it to the kids.



 I did not have access to a kitchen area during E.S.Y.  I also do not have a kitchen with my current school to be able to cook with a stove. Therefore I've been pretty creative with our cooking endeavors. I have used the following appliances in the past to make recipes in the classroom:

  • Crockpot: chili, nacho cheese, potatoes
  • Blender: shakes, smoothies
  • Griddle: pancakes, bacon, eggs, sausage
  • Waffle maker: waffles
  • Quesadilla maker: quesadillas with ham or pepperoni
  • Microwaved: 3-2-1 cake

  1. I had a toaster oven, microwave and burner. I've also brought my electric wok in to make Chinese food. We did a whole unit on microwave safety (3-5 grade). We made it work.

  2. All I had last year was a microwave, so we did quite a lot of "no cook" cooking. This IP thing sounds like an interesting idea!
