Ok so yes I am obsessed with my new fancy pressure cooker! Do you have one yet?? I’ve made tons of meals but thought I’d try something for Christmas morning breakfast this year since the holidays were rolling around and this Instant Pot breakfast casserole did the trick! There are even more under 30 minute casserole Instant Pot recipe ideas on The Typical Mom so enjoy. 😉 (affiliate links present)

Instant Pot Dump Breakfast

We are a family who loves breakfast, and can easily have it for dinner a few times each month. I also love a good egg casserole recipe. Throw all the things we love in, let it cook, and enjoy them all together any time of day. If you loved our copycat Starbucks sous vide egg bites made in this pot this will be a hit too.

Doesn’t need to be an IP either though, there are several other brands out there that work. As long as it is electric, and not the old fashioned type you can make this. We use a springform pan but that will be discussed too. If you use a Ninja foodi you’ll use the lid that is not attached for this.

If you are new to pressure cooking we have a lot of easy one pot meal recipes for you here. To begin with let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have (a 6 quart) and use for all recipe creations.

Instant Pot Breakfast Casserole with Potatoes

I have made a crockpot breakfast casserole for years so this year I thought I’d make it in my pressure cooker.

Packing it full is what love, we made this Instant Pot breakfast casserole last weekend. It is sort of like a crustless quiche if you want to call it that. But without the crust so you only get the good inside parts you crave. It’s packed with a whole lot more than just cheese egg and ham or spinach. For reference, I have a 6 quart pot.

I made it three ways, one in the pot itself (but it does stick to the bottom for this method), the style you see here that’s like a crustless quiche, and one using a bundt pan which is similar to a breakfast bundt cake.

Instant Pot Breakfast

For the first (pot in pot) PIP method you see here in the round pan you will need to use a springform cake pan, this is the one I use. Essentially it is steamed and comes out as a “pie” you can slice. This is what it looks like using the first PIP method.

The directions are very similar but vary a bit. I used a little less in this pan and increased the time because it is thick. Of course if you like your eggs really done and drier I might add a minute or two. But this is how our 2nd Instant Pot breakfast casserole version turned out after 15 minutes.

  • You can omit the bacon bits too or add them in either one, totally up to you. I didn’t add cheese to the one above because my husband can’t have dairy so I used almond milk as an alternative and didn’t add cheese, that is pretty yummy too (even for me who eats dairy).

Just keep in mind that adding a lot more ingredients may mean adding a minute or two on to the cooking time.

Everyone prefers their eggs a little drier or more on the wet side so the first time you make this you can adjust according to your preference. 15 minutes is perfect for this below using pre cooked bacon bits and no cheese. If you add sausage I add 1 more minute.

Ninja Foodi Breakfast Casserole

If you’re new to the pressure cooking world take a peek at how to use an Instant Pot to get yourself familiar. The SECOND method is a PIP egg casserole as well but is more of an omelette using this bundt pan

  1. 8 eggs
  2. 1/2 c. breakfast sausage spicy Jimmy Dean is the best or bacon bits
  3. Shredded cheese
  4. Bell pepper
  5. Diced onion
  6. Milk
  7. 1/4 tsp. garlic salt
  8. Pinch salt and pepper
  9. cup of water for bottom of the pan
  10. bowl to whisk egg mixture

The first time I made this it didn’t come out smoothly because my pan had lost a lot of the “non stickiness”. So make sure you have a good Teflon pan or spray it really well.

I mean it is fabulous no matter what but if you really want it pretty that’s my tip…..

Directions

  • Scramble eggs in a bowl
  • Spray inside of bundt pan really WELL
  • Add all other ingredients and fold together
  • Pour omelette mixture into bundt pan
  • Cover with foil
  • Put trivet and 1 1/2 c. water into your pressure cooker
  • Make a sling out of foil
  • Lower bundt pan on to trivet
  • Set to pressure high for 12 minutes 
  • Allow to naturally release the steam 
  • Cool
  • Carefully loosen sides off pan
  • Put plate on top and carefully flip over to keep shape in tact

Eggs in Instant Pot

Here is a breakfast bundt cake made in your Instant Pot! Made with refrigerated biscuits, eggs, ham (or bacon) and seasonings it is perfect for brunch or even dinner.

  • This is the Third way is more like an Instant Pot breakfast bundt cake. Use this pressure cooker breakfast post for instructions to make this one.
  • It’s very similar to one we made in our oven years ago.

On to our last way to make a sort of Instant Pot breakfast casserole but bite sized! We call these Instant Pot egg bites and they are similar to Starbucks egg bites but would definitely classify them in the breakfast casserole category because they’re stuffed with cheese, vegetables, and bits of meat too if you like.

  • Similar to Instant Pot crustless quiche bites if you will
  • Here is the recipe for these pressure cooker egg bites as you see here

Pressure Cooker Egg Bites

Crockpot Express breakfast casserole

  1. Trivet – I like one with handles
  2. A springform pan
  3. Eggs
  4. Hash browns (I used frozen and defrosted what I needed for this)
  5. Bell pepper (I used half a red and half a green, up to you)
  6. Green onions
  7. Bacon bits
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. Milk
  10. Cheese – We like a lot. I have also made a dairy free version without cheese since my husband can’t have it. It’s good too. I just add cheese to mine and microwave a little to melt.

Any recommendations for doing just eggs? We are cooking for a huge group (over 100 people), trying to find the EASIEST way to have “scrambled” eggs on our breakfast night. (Several IP available to use) We usually use five dozen eggs...cooked using the “slave in kitchen” method; standing at stove, doing pan after pan of 1/2 dozen eggs. (Not fun) *Thanks in advance

I used my spring form pan and poured the eggs in, here they came out the bottom! Do no trust it. I put them in my 7" cake pan. There in the IP. Ill re post when they're done.

You always need to wrap the bottom of any springform pan. Careful assembly and foil works every time.

I'm replying to my last comment. I guess my spring form does not seal correctly. It's Food Network brand for my 6qt. (I will return!) I did use my cake pan. I had to pressure-cook it 30 min on high, let steam escape 7 min. Unlock, pulled out with my trivet, flipped on dish after 5 min to rest. Tasted great. I also used 3 Ora-Ida frozen hash brown patties in bottom. They were already crispy!

Springform pans are very testy and you need to ensure it is in the slots on the outside of the outer rim before locking or it will leak.

Made this tonight. Did it in the 7 inch Springform in a 6 qt IP. I didn’t use peppers. Substituted baby bells mushrooms and diced tomatoes instead. Turned out a lot higher that it looked in the pictures, so it took longer to cook. In all it took 26 minutes rather than 16 so that the centre was done. My wife and I had 2 pieces each with Spicy Thai Sauce for supper. It was delicious. Still have two pieces left for breakfast tomorrow morning!

New to IP ( 6qt ). Was going to fix a quick breakfast. But I could not find any pans: Spring form; bundt; funnel: or tall cake, that would fit. In IP. Opted for this recipe, because it is "cook in IP Pot". Finally I have everything in. Can't find the owner's manual. Hope it turns out good. Grandkids are HUNGRY! Need to shop for IP accessories.
