Instant Pot Creamed Brussel Sprouts with Gruyere

With the holidays just around the corner, I love to make vegetable dishes that we love and elevate them to the next level like our Ninja Foodi Grill Grilled Marinated Broccoli recipe and our 

Instant Pot corn on the cob with milk and butter. The other day I decided it was time to take brussel sprouts and create a holiday-worthy dish that everyone will love. Meet our new favorite holiday side dish, Instant Pot Creamed Brussel Sprouts with Gruyere.

This recipe takes ordinary creamed brussel sprouts and elevates them to a level of perfection with the addition of parmesan and gruyere cheese. 

How to make Instant Pot Creamed Brussel Sprouts with Gruyere

  • With the electric pressure cooker on the saute mode, heat until “hot.” Add the butter and onion. Cook until the onion is softened.
  • Stir in the garlic and chicken stock.
  • Place the brussel sprouts on top.
  • Place the lid on the pressure cooker and set the valve to sealing. Program the pressure cooker on “manual” or “pressure cook” for 5 minutes.
  • When the cooking cycle has completed, perform a quick release. Remove the lid and stir in the remaining ingredients.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • I love this recipe with both parmesan and gruyere cheese, but feel free to try other cheese combinations. 
  • Cooking for 5 minutes is perfection to me, but if you want firmer brussel sprouts cook a little less, and if you want less firm brussel sprouts add an additional minute. 
  • Add some bacon! If you want to add bacon it is always a great idea with brussel sprouts. 
  • You can cut your brussel sprouts in half or leave them whole. 
  • Be sure to release the pressure as soon as the timer goes off so your brussel sprouts don’t overcook and become mushy.

Storage

You will want to store these in the fridge in an airtight container for up 2 days. 

Can I double this recipe?

Yes, you can double this recipe! Increase the broth by ¼ cup and double the rest of the ingredients. Cook for the same amount of time. If you find it to be too thick after cooking is complete you can pour in a little bit of broth. 

Can I use frozen brussel sprouts?

I prefer fresh brussel sprouts, but if you cannot find them you can use frozen ones. Note that it will take longer to come to pressure.
