Instant Pot Apple Butternut Squash Recipe

Making butternut squash in the Instant Pot is probably one of our favorite everyday side dishes. It’s incredibly easy and turns out delicious every time. Plus, butternut squash is so versatile!

This butternut squash casserole is full of flavor with apples, bacon, red onions, and pecans – it is the perfect casserole for fall.

When making this apple butternut squash casserole in the pressure cooker I did use a stackable pan insert.

There are also casserole dishes that will fit into the Instant Pot. If you go this route check to make sure they are heat safe before proceeding.

I do think that this casserole could be cooked directly in the Instant Pot without a stackable pan, but I worried about it since pressure cookers require liquid in order to come to pressure. Adding liquids directly to the butternut squash mixture will cause the items to get soggy and probably fall apart.

An option to create this dish in your instant pot without the liquids would be to slow cook or saute until the squash is fork-tender. This, of course, would take more time, but is a workaround if you do not own a stackable pan…which if you don’t I would strongly recommend getting one! Since buying our stackable pans we have started using our pressure cooker so much more!

Alrighty y’all, let’s get cooking!
