Enjoy a delicious Easter with these 10 great Instant Pot recipes for ham, lamb, and more 

However you choose to enjoy Easter dinner with your family, we’ve got 10 great Instant Pot recipes for Easter that are worth celebrating.  

There are a few different theories about why it’s traditional to have ham at Easter. Some people think it’s because you’re sick of Turkey after Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some think it’s because the hams from last season’s pigs have finally cured and are ready to enjoy. Some think it’s because lambs — which used to be the entree of choice at Easter because they’re in season — are too a bit too pricey — so now we eat ham. 

Or maybe it’s just because ham is a deliciously great way to feed a crowd.
