Instant Pot Meatloaf with Hidden Veggies


Do you want your family to eat more Vegetables? I always have to work on that even when my grandkids come over. So this recipe is another way of getting veggies into a person's diet. You can use different kinds of veggies too. GET creative. It's delicious

Full recipe Serves 4-6

Ingredients for Meatloaf
2 pounds ground beef
1 egg
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/3 cup tomato sauce or ketchup or BBQ sauce(you pick)
Shake of Worcestershire
2 tablespoons minced garlic, fresh
2 tablespoons dried minced onion or 1/2 cup finely minced onion
A good handful of fresh spinach sliced thin(or other greens, zucchini works)
2 teaspoons dried parsley
a dash of pepper and salt if you like
extra ketchup or BBQ sauce for topping, if desired

Ingredients for Potatoes
2 lbs. potatoes, chopped
1/2 cup half and half cream or milk
1/2 cup or more chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter
Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:
Mix ingredients for meatloaf in a large bowl.
Transfer to a disposable foil loaf pan or make your own loaf shaped pan out of
tin foil.

Cut potatoes into smaller pieces and place at the bottom of Instant Pot. Arranged
them in an even layer. Add 1 cup broth or water over potatoes.

Place the rack that comes with your Instant Pot over potatoes and set the
meatloaf on top. (I had to squish the pan a little for it to fit, but that’s
fine.)

The rack will make it easy for you to take loaf out when it’s done.
Secure lid and set at Manual (high pressure) cook time to 30 minutes. Make sure
steam release is closed.
When finished, do a quick release on the pressure.
Top with a little additional ketchup or sauce you like and place under the oven’s broiler for a few
minutes to caramelize. (Optional, but yummy step!)
Meanwhile to make potatoes, mash them in the Instant Pot with half and half, (OR milk)broth,
butter, salt, and pepper until creamy.
