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.

Cooking Meatloaf Bites In The Instant 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.

  1. I’m sure this is so delicious since the ingredients are slightly similar to what we called “embutido”.

  2. Meatloaf is so heavenly. My wife and I love it and we have a favorite restaurant near our place where we always have meatloaf. Unfortunately, it closed down because of the pandemic. These days though, I think cooking at home is the safest option so I’ll try this recipe.

  3. That’s so clever. These are perfect finger food for picnics over the summer. I’ve not tried meatloaf before so this would be interesting.
