Instant Pot Bread Pudding

Savory with Mushrooms and Parmesan

The first time I told my family I was making a savory bread pudding, they looked at me like I had two heads. They just couldn’t wrap their brains around the idea. But I tell you what… they sure did eat ALL of it! The best way I can describe this Instant Pot bread pudding is this… It’s like stuffing and bread pudding had a baby. All the flavors of holiday stuffing, but with the texture of traditional bread pudding – rich and custardy-creamy.

    I want to make this for a friend but i only have a 6″ pan (and 8″, 9″). Do you know how much I would have to adjust the time?

      My best guess is to increase the cook time 10 minutes for a 6-inch pan. I’d probably keep it the same for the 8 or 9 though.
