I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Could this be adapted for the instant pot?


Hi Catherine, I don't think this would work in an instant pot because it won't create the nice crispy crust. Also, the shape wouldn't work because the instant pot is too small. It may be ok in a slow cooker if you then crisp it up in the oven.


I made this recipe for dinner tonight.  Delicious!


Awesome, I'm glad you liked it! 😊


This looks amazing. It would be really good with a cranberry & pecan stuffing of some sorts.


I agree, that stuffing sounds amazing! 😊
