We make meatloaf quite a bit in our house but we have a unique way of putting a fun twist on it. Instead of making the same old meatloaf look and recipe every time, we vary it up with these delicious and fun Instant Pot Meatloaf Bites. Because sometimes, it’s fun to eat with a toothpick and enjoy the simplicity of having a bite all ready for you to eat!
Can you make Instant Pot meatloaf using ground turkey meat?
You can. One simple way to cut out some of the fat content in your recipes is to swap out the ground beef and use ground turkey meat instead. You won’t even notice a taste difference really but just be certain to make a note of any changes that you’ll need to do for future recipes as turkey meat can sometimes cook up drier due to less fat content.
Instant Pot Meatloaf (Servings: 14 bites – there will be meat mixture leftover. If wanting to make more, continue steps 2 – 7)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total: 45 minutes (this is for 14 bites. If making more, 2 minutes for prep time, 35 for cook time, 37 for total time.)
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 pound ground pork sausage
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs
- salt to taste
- black pepper to taste
- non stick spray
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 10 drops Worcestershire sauce
In a large mixing bowl, mix together your beef, sausage, breadcrumbs, eggs, salt, and pepper.
Spray your molds with cooking spray.
Fill each mold with the meatloaf mixture. Cover the mold with your silicone lids. If the mold you have doesn’t come with one, you can cover with aluminum foil.
Add 1 cup of water to your Instant Pot. Add your trivet to the Pot then add your silicone molds on top of the trivet. You can add up to two layers of molds in your Pot.
Cook on High Pressure for 35 minutes.
Once done cooking, manually open the valve using a towel or hot pad to prevent burning from the hot steam.
Once the steam has quit, remove the molds carefully by using a hot pad or towel, and pulling the trivet out. Place each mold on a cooling rack. Allow to cool in the molds for 5 minutes.
Remove and serve with ketchup!
This would make a great party food idea, or you might want to serve these as a main with mash, vegetables and gravy.
