How to Make Instant Pot Burgers

These Instant Pot Turkey Burgers come together in just a few simple steps. The recipe takes some effort, but the end result is well worth it.

Step 1: Shape the turkey into patties

Portion meat into 4 equal parts. Burgers will shrink in the instant pot so flatten them to be bigger than your bun.

Step 2: Wrap the burgers in foil

Season each burger and wrap it in foil sealing it closed.
