Eating gluten free should not mean giving up the things you love.  Turkey dinners can now include stuffing again!

To begin, using a large mixing bowl, I broke up a whole loaf of gluten free bread into small pieces.

Break the bread into small pieces.

I then chopped up one medium onion.  You could also slice up some celery at this point as well.  I may add it the next time I make it.

Next , I prepared the chicken broth and the spices to be added to the Pot later.

I then turned the Instant Pot on to the saute normal function and added the margarine and the onions to the pot.  I used a wooden spatula to stir until the onions started to soften.

The butter and chopped vegetables.

When the onions were soft I poured in the broth that also contained the salt, pepper, sage and poultry seasoning and continued to stir.

Add broth and spices to the butter and chopped vegetables.

After everything is well blended I turned off the Instant Pot and, using oven mitts, carefully pour the liquid over the bread crumbs in the mixing bowl.

Pour broth mixture over the bread.

Now I stirred to blend all the ingredients and moisten all of the bread crumbs.

I sprayed a silicone bundt cake mold, from Canadian Tire, with cooking spray.

I then placed the stuffing in the silicone bundt cake mold and covered it with tin foil.  

I placed a small hole in the centre to correspond with the hole in the mold.  This mold just fit inside the Instant Pot so I wanted to have a vent.

Cover with tin foil and poke hole in centre.

I poured water into the Instant Pot before placing the trivet and silicone mold inside.

I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 20 minutes.

After the stuffing was cooked I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes I turned the steam release handle to the venting position to finish with a Quick Release.

I used the handles of the trivet to lift the stuffing mold out of the Pot and carefully removed the tin foil.

This Instant Pot stuffing is the perfect side dish for your holiday turkey or whenever you serve up chicken.

The top layer of stuffing will be rather moist so I recommend turning it out into a serving dish and mixing it up a bit.

If you prefer a stuffing with a crunchy top you can experiment with putting it under the broiler for a few minutes while you carve up your turkey or your chicken.

My family really enjoyed the stuffing right from the Instant Pot!

    I have 3 questions:

    1.) How many cups of stuffing does this recipe make?

    2.) I, too, own an 8 quart Instant Pot Duo. Can this recipe be doubled?

    3.) What is the purpose of using a bundt cake pan & foil? I don’t understand.

    Thank you so much for this recipe!

      Hi Marsha,
      I put the yield down as 8 because the silcone bundt pan that I use probably made about 8 cups. It holds 10 cups of water right to the brim. It was the only container I had that could make a large amount and still fit in my Instant Pot. Not sure if there would be a way to double it and have the pan fit in. You could make a second batch and it freezes really well. I use the tinfoil to prevent the stuffing from getting too soggy. I do this when I make biscuits on top of stew as well. I let it vent out the center of the bundt pan. Hope this helps and thank you very much for checking out the recipe!!
