Instant Pot Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes is right up there with being one of my favorite meals! Comfort food at its finest! Making it in my Instant Pot has made me love it even more. Combining two classic comfort foods together into one meal that comes together quick and easy. Pair it with a favorite vegetable and roll for more sides and you've got a whole complete meal.

Meatloaf takes me back to my childhood, its always been a meal I have loved, plus lots of great conversations take place at the dining table. A busy weekend morning sorting calves, then enjoy a nice meal before getting back to work again. It is also a meal that my family these days enjoys as well!

I like my mashed potatoes somewhat chunky but you can also use a hand mixer if you prefer yours to be really smooth. I like the skins on the potatoes, but you can also take them off. 

If you prefer BBQ sauce instead of Ketchup, you can make the switch with that. 

This meal is always a hit for our family and I especially love that is is prepared and cooked in one pot as well dinner coming together faster.

  3. Do you not have to add water for the potatoes to cook? I have a different brand pressure cooker and it generally requires water to cook potatoes.
