Instant Pot Kitchen Sink Casserole—a clean out the fridge and pantry type of recipe. Lots of ingredients that somehow all work together for a warm, comforting supper.
Instant Pot Kitchen Sink Casserole
I saw a recipe for kitchen sink casserole on another website and I was intrigued. What exactly goes into kitchen sink casserole? I suppose everything but the kitchen sink, right? As I read the ingredient list I knew that it was one of those clean out the fridge type or recipes that every mom or dad needs to have in their back pocket.
Although the ingredients in this recipe might not seem to go together (rice and potatoes and tomato soup??) the end product is quite tasty. It reminded me a bit of the cabbage roll soup casserole. My kids and I both agreed that it was a winning dinner. Greg sat forlornly by as this was the 8th day of a self-imposed cleanse/detox/reset. Don’t worry, he’ll be done on Wednesday…our 20th wedding anniversary!
Make sure to follow the layering instructions in the recipe so that you don’t get the dreaded burn notice. Because the pot is deglazed and the rice is gently submerged in the broth while the rest of the ingredients are layered on top this recipe works! And it only takes 3 minutes of pressure cooking time. Yes the rice and potatoes cook in that amount of time! The pot is quite full so it takes a bit of time to reach pressure and the food inside is cooking the entire time.
