    Unless you've been living under a rock like Patrick Star, you've probably heard of the small kitchen appliance known as the Instant Pot.

    The Instant Pot is a multi-cooker device that can steam, sauté, brown, warm, and you can use it as a rice cooker, slow cooker, and yogurt maker. It's the best and it's been reviewed all over the internet.

    So get your hands on an Instant Pot (if you don't have one already) and get cooking!

    So without further ado, here are some delish Instant Pot recipes that'll basically cook themselves:

    1. A breakfast casserole filled with eggs and hash browns the whole fam will be bEGGing you to make every morning.

    2. A cinnamon banana oatmeal recipe you can throw together as soon as you're up in the morning and breakfast just might cook itself before you slip into your OOTD.

    3. A French toast Instant Pot recipe that'll look tasty enough to get even the sleepiest, grumpiest, "I'm just gonna snooze for five more mins" person out of bed (me) pronto.

    4. A creamy, easy mac and cheese your magical pot shall cook up in only five minutes!

    5. A shredded chicken taco that'll make you say "this is spec*taco*lar."

    6. A spaghetti and meatball meal made to cook all in one pot, because sometimes boiling water is just too much effort.

    7. A vegan chickpea curry you can throw together and enjoy in only 30 minutes.

    8. A garlic herb shrimp and spaghetti squash recipe to eat up on those summer nights when it's so hot, you don't even want to look at the oven.

    9. A French dip sandwich for anyone who wants to seriosuly (but easily) step up their lunch game.

    10. A saag chicken recipe that'll ~spinach~ your head right round.

    11. A pressure cooker ramen noodle soup so you can indulge your late-night ramen cravings without leaving the comfort of home.

    12. A tortellini, sausage, and kale soup you'll *tortellini* want to include in your weekly meal plan.

    13. An easy Instant Pot tomato basil tilapia dish because tomato and basil go together as well as stress and being pressed for time — this babe cooks up in just a few minutes and solves both problems!

    14. A veggie fried rice the Instant Pot will steam and sauté. Bye rice cooker!

    15. A super quick potato salad for anyone who makes this delish side dish all summer long and is always looking to improve their recipe (me).

    16. A life-changing Instant Pot beef stew that just may ~meat~ and exceed your expectations.

    17. And a pot roast with mashed cauliflower recipe to give a classic meal a little *perk of being a cauliflower.*

    18. A chicken tortilla soup you can slow cook to perfection in 45 minutes, because there is clearly nothing the Instant Pot can't do.

    19. A veggie lo mein dish designed for those of us who order takeout way too much because cooking, effort, and using three different pots and pans is a terror you can now abandon — you don't even have to drain the water in this recipe.

    20. A Mexican stuffed sweet potato that looks too satisfying and delicious to handle.

    21. And a New York-style cheesecake worthy of breaking the Instant Pot out on those days when you need a heavy dose of decadence.
