Instant Pot Gluten-free Meatloaf And Cheddar Mashed Potatoes #Recipe

Instant Pot Meatloaf And Cheddar Mashed Potatoes Recipe From Val's Kitchen

I make meatloaf once or twice a month. I usually make a gluten-free version so that we can all eat it. That’s the upside. The downside is that is takes over 75 minutes to prepare and cook. We all also love mashed potatoes but they take a fair amount of time to cook as well. I decided to try making both in the Instant Pot. I know more than one item can be cooked inside one Instant Pot if you have the appropriate rack or steamer bowl. I don’t have a rack for the inside of the pot yet, so I made a “basket” to hold the meatloaf out of aluminum foil. I used three sheets of aluminum foil, folding the edges up to form the sides of the “bowl”. I made sure the seams didn’t overlap in order to prevent leakage. When the basket is ready to be used, it sits on top of the potatoes. The finished meal was quite tasty. The meatloaf was a tad on the rare side, you could add another minute to the cooking cycle or simply microwave it a little if you want it more well done. The potatoes were very thick, warming and filling. if you don’t care for your potatoes being very thick, simply thin them out with a little additional milk. I will be making the meal again. Here’s how I made it.

Place the potatoes into the Instant Pot and cover with water.

Place the ground beef and seasonings into a large bowl and mix well.

Create a “bowl” to go inside the pot using aluminum foil.
