Instant Pot Beef Roast Recipe

My family and I wrote a list of all the food we are going to make for Thanksgiving and realized that no one wanted to eat or make a Turkey this year. We have been slowing phasing Turkey and Ham out of our holiday meals. It is official, this Thanksgiving we are going to have Beefsgiving instead! My Father-In-Law made an amazing roast last year and I am recreating the magic in the Instant Pot with this Instant Pot Beef Roast Recipe.

Crispy Kale Chips

Cheesy Kale Chips Recipe

Over the past 10 years, I have been making cheesy kale chips trying different variations of spices and consistency of cheese. This is by far my favorite way to eat parmesan kale chips. I prefer making kale chips to buying them in the bag because they taste best when they are fresh. The ones in the bags have preservatives and way too much stuff on them. I like a light sprinkling of cheese, olive oil spray, and spices to get crispy kale chips.

Easy Zucchini Appetizer

The Inspiration for the Recipe

Over the holidays, my mom always made fried zucchini that acts an appetizer and snack before and after Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. In an effort to be more healthy she stopped breading them and started baking them instead. They are still yummy, but it just is not the same. This recipe was inspired by an effort to make the zucchinis delicious again. I made an easy zucchini appetizer that looks more like mini zucchini pizza appetizers with sliced goat cheese from Whole Foods and cherry tomatoes.

How to Make Easy Zucchini Appetizer

Since there are only 3 ingredients, you won’t have to remember a huge list of foods. They have a mild flavor that is generally pleasing for most people. You’ll also enjoy the small number of dishes you’ll have to wash afterward. 

All in all, this probably one of my favorite appetizer recipes I have ever made! 


All you need for this recipe is: 

  • Zucchini
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Goat Cheese

That’s it! Of course, you will also need some non-stick spray to help them cook better. 


Here are the directions. This is a recipe that you can allow your kids to help you with. You’ll find the detailed instructions in the printable recipe card. Here’s an overview of how to make them. 

  1. Preheat the oven. 
  2. Wash and slice the zucchini
  3. Slice the goat cheese
  4. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half
  5. Layer them on a cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for about 10-15 minutes. 

That’s it! 

How to Make them Ahead of Time

You will save a lot of time if you do the food prep ahead of time. Then, all you have to do is preheat the oven and bake them. 

So slice the zucchini, goat cheese, and cherry tomatoes. Keep them in individual zippered bags or plastic containers with a lid. 

Goat Cheese Replacement

I discovered that the goat cheese melts perfectly on the zucchini. It also has a really deep flavor that brings out the sweetness of the tomatoes. 

But if you don’t like goat cheese or just want a different kind of cheese, here are the other kinds you can try: 

  • Mozzarella
  • Muenster
  • Brie
