When it comes to fall flavors, nothing does us so right as the Instant Pot. Known for its ability to marry delicious ingredients in a short period of time, the Instant Pot is a handy tool to use for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here, we're focusing on fall breakfasts -- some of which are probably better for the weekend, but some would make for perfect, quick weekday breakfast meals. The recipes highlight the glory of fall flavors but done in a really easy, accessible way using inexpensive, delicious ingredients like canned pumpkin, fresh acorn squash, and sweet potatoes. Many of these recipes work well on their own, but would also be excellent as just as jumping-off point for a little creativity. For example, the stuffed sweet potatoes are super tasty, but imagine the possibilities for what else could go in there -- add chili, and instead of breakfast, we have a great Instant Pot breakfast or lunch! 

The truth is, all these wonderful Instant Pot breakfasts are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many great dishes we get to really enjoy in the fall, when it's cool enough to actually want a hot breakfast again. (Can anyone even imagine really enjoying pumpkin-spice oatmeal all summer long? Ew, right? But the second fall comes around... please sign us up!) This is the time to consider autumn breakfasts beyond the Instant Pot, too, including fall pancake recipes  -- some of which don't take much time and can, of course, be made on a weekday, but only if we're good to leave the dishes to do later. Then there are fall-inspired muffin recipes, which taste amazing and are also simple to make for a bake sale. And for anyone looking to find more ways to get good use out of their Instant Pot, take a gander at Instant Pot recipes that make cooking crazy-easyInstant Pot dinner recipes, and some extra delicious Instant Pot recipes. They're sure to make the whole family satisfied and happy -- without taking up much time.
