Instant Pot Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

For the meatloaf

2 lb. ground beef (I used an 80% lean ground beef)

1 cup plain breadcrumbs

2 eggs

1/4 cup onion, I used dried onion

2 tsp garlic powder salt

2 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp pepper

1/2 cup bbq sauce or ketchup

For the potatoes

3 lbs yellow potatoes

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 half and half or milk (maybe more if you want them thinner)

Half a stick of butter

Salt and pepper

Cut up the potatoes into cubes and put in the bottom of the instant pot. Pour in the 1 cup of broth. Place the metal steamer rack on top and try to level it out.

Mix the meatloaf ingredients and shape into a circular loaf (that will fit the pot). Put it on heavy duty tin foil and make a boat with it. Make sure the sides are high enough so the oil doesn’t overflow. Then set it on the rack.

Put the lid on and close the vent. Press pressure cook, high pressure, and set to 30 minutes. When it’s done, quick release the vent and open.

Pull the meat out and either let it cool, or stick it on a cookie sheet and put under the broiler for a few minutes while you are making the potatoes and let the top crust a little. Feel free to add any topping, bbq sauce, ketchup or mustard and brown sugar. Whatever you like!

To make the potatoes, just mash directly in the pot and add in all the ingredients, the half and half, butter, salt, and pepper. Top with blue cheese if you want. 🙂
