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.

    I love how you can cook the entire meal in the instant pot. My husband loves a good meatloaf and I’m all about the potatoes, so this meal would be very popular at my house.

    Meat and potatoes as a meal always goes over in our home. Meatloaf is always easy to through together and adding the mashed cheese potato works well with the meatloaf. Here is to a hearty meal.

    Meatloaf is one of our favorites! These cheesy potatoes would make a good addition to my menu. We usually have baked potatoes with ours.

    This is one of my husband’s favorite dishes, mashed potatoes and meatloaf. I always use cream cheese for mashed potatoes.

    I’ve never had meatloaf, nor have I ever added cheddar to my potatoes, but I’d love to try both. This sounds like a great dinner option.
