  • 1
    Spray 1 1/2-quart round baking dish without handles to fit in Instant Pot® (3 1/4 inches deep x 7 1/4 inches wide) with cooking spray. Make a foil sling by tearing off a 16x12-inch piece of heavy-duty foil. Fold foil in half lengthwise; fold again in half lengthwise to make a foil sling (16x3 inches). Set aside.

    On 6-quart Instant Pot®, select SAUTE; adjust to normal. Melt butter in insert. Add bell pepper and green onions; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Select CANCEL. Spoon vegetable mixture into baking dish; stir in hash browns, 1 cup of the cheese, the broccoli and ham until well blended.

    In large bowl, beat eggs, half-and-half, salt and pepper with whisk until well blended. Place foil sling under baking dish. Carefully lower dish into insert, holding sides of foil sling. Make sure sides of foil sling are sticking up alongside insert on both sides of dish. Place baking dish on rack in Instant Pot®. Pour egg mixture over hash brown mixture. Secure lid; set pressure valve to SEALING. Select MANUAL; cook on high pressure 38 minutes. Select CANCEL. Set pressure valve to VENTING to quick-release pressure.

Expert Tips

  • Use caution when releasing remaining pressure from Instant Pot® after cooking, due to escaping hot steam.
  • Liquid that forms on top of the egg casserole while cooking will be absorbed during the 10-minute stand time. You can also gently pat the top with paper towels to absorb any excess liquid.
  • Serve with sour cream, chopped tomatoes, sliced green onions or salsa.
  • To round out your breakfast, serve with fresh fruit and Pillsbury™ Grands!™ biscuits.
