Instant Pot Bacon Ranch Meatloaf And Ranch Mashed Potatoes – Making 2 tasty comfort foods at once in the Instant Pot at the same time is a real time saver.

Instant Pot Bacon Ranch Meatloaf And Ranch Mashed Potatoes Recipe From Val's Kitchen
I absolutely love mashed potatoes. I do not love how long they take to cook. The Instant Pot became my preferred way of making mashed potatoes as soon as I figured out how to make them in it. Besides a reduced cooking time, the other great thing about making them in the Instant Pot is that if it’s summertime you aren’t heating up the house cooking. Mashed potatoes and meatloaf go really well together, it’s a meal containing two comfort foods. Add a little of the ever popular ranch flavor and you have Bacon Ranch Meatloaf and Ranch Mashed Potatoes. Making them both in the Instant Pot at the same time is a real time saver. The simplest way to do this is by using a steamer rack and a pan fo the meatloaf. Eveyone enjoyed the flavor in this dish and there were no leftovers whatsoever. Here’s how I make it.

    Bacon ranch meatloaf sounds like something my husband would love. He is a big meatloaf fan and he loves anything bacon ranch.

    Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. Honestly any kind of potato is love. I’ve not mastered mashed potatoes form scratch so I use the box.
