The secret to making bread in the instant pot
The yogurt button! It’s a function on your instant pot that you might not be sure how to use. In addition to great instant pot yogurt recipes, use it to make some of these fantastic breads. But don't worry if your instant pot doesn't have the yogurt button, several of these recipes will be made through plain old pressure cooking.
Whole wheat crunchy bread

Savory, gluten-free white bread
If you’re craving a more traditional, typical bread, then this tried and tested white bread recipe for the instant pot will be perfect for you. The original recipe uses regular flour, but you can make slight modifications using gluten-free flour and a little more baking soda.

No knead parmesan bread
Speaking of savory breads, this one's flavored with parmesan, oregano, and thyme. But really, you are free to season it however you like as long as you use four simple base ingredients for your bread: flour, bread, yeast, and warm water. (via What's Cookin' Chicago)
