This holiday, I want to make the festive meal as easy as possible, so I’ve been on a quest to make an entire feast using the Crock Pot® Express Crock Multi-Cooker pressure cooker. You can use your Instant Pot in the same way!

When I say easy, I mean REALLY REALLY easy. Like this green bean casserole, which is a must for every holiday gathering.
