Instant Pot Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

Instant Pot Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

This was just an awesome challenge this evening! Meatloaf and mashed potatoes in one go in my Instant Pot using a Bundt Pan! It was truly yummy – even if you only just make the mashed potatoes! So creamy and delicious!

Instant Pot Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes

The Meatloaf:

  1. 1 lb of ground sirloin beef (85%-90% lean – the less lean, the better)
  2. ½ lb of ground pork
  3. ½ lb of ground veal
    (NOTE: Although I think it’s the best combo for the best flavor, if you don’t want to use pork and/or veal, you can add more ground beef instead. Whatever combo of meat you use, just make sure it totals 2 lbs)
  4. Half an onion, grated
  5. 1 cup of breadcrumbs
  6. 1 tbsp of seasoned salt
  7. 2 tsp of black pepper
  8. 2 tsp of dried oregano
  9. 3 tbsp of crushed garlic
  10. 2 tbsp of dried parsley
  11. ½ cup of whole milk
  12. 2 tbsp of tomato sauce
  13. ½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  14. 2 tbsp of barbecue sauce
  15. 2 eggs, slightly beaten

The Meatloaf Glaze:

  1. ½ cup of tomato sauce
  2. ¼ cup of barbecue sauce
  3. 1 tbsp of yellow mustard
  4. 1 tbsp of honey
  5. 2 tbsp of brown sugar (either light or dark is fine)
  6. 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
  7. 1 tbsp of balsamic glaze

The Potatoes Before Mashing:

  1. 1kg .5 lbs of baby white or Yukon potatoes, rinsed, skin-on and quartered
  2. 1½ lbs of baby red potatoes, rinsed, skin-on and quartered
  3. 5 cloves of garlic
  4. 1½ cups of chicken stock

The Potatoes After Mashing:

  1. ½ stick (4 tbsp) of salted butter
  2. ½ cup of half & half or heavy cream
  3. 5.2 oz of Boursin cheese (or you can use 4 oz cream cheese or 4 oz of sour cream instead)
  4. 1 tsp of kosher salt
  5. 1 tsp of black pepper
  6. ½ tsp of Italian seasoning
  7. 1 tsp of garlic powder
  8. ¼ cup of chives, sliced

Instant Pot Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes



  • In a large bowl, mix together all the meatloaf ingredients by hand for about 2 minutes until it clumps together and stays in a giant meatball form.
  • Spray a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray and pack the meatloaf mixture into it.
  • Cover with non-stick foil or spritz non-stick spray on the foil and puncture a hole in the middle of the foil so the steam can go through the bundt pan’s center – (DO NOT forget to do this)
  • Add the potatoes, chicken stock, and garlic cloves to the Instant Pot.
  • Rest the trivet on top of the potatoes and garlic (press it down good so the trivet rests flat) and then rest the bundt pan on top of the trivet.
  • Secure the lid and hit “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” at High Pressure for 35 minutes.
  • While the meatloaf’s cooking, mix together all the ingredients for the meatloaf glaze in a bowl until well combined. Set aside when done.


Instant Pot

  • Once the Instant Pot has finished cooking, perform a quick release. Preheat the oven to 200 ᵒC while the steam’s releasing.
  • Using some tongs and a dish towel/oven mitt, remove the bundt from the pot.
  • Pour out any excess drippings from the bundt. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Place the foil-lined baking sheet over the bundt and, firmly holding them together with your hands protected from the heat, quickly flip upside down.
  • The meatloaf will slide right out of the bundt and onto the foil.
  • Brush the meatloaf glaze all over the meatloaf and pop it into the oven for 5-10 minutes until the glaze caramelizes (I went for 7 minutes).
  • Keep an eye on it as all ovens vary!
  • While the meatloaf’s in the oven, (pour out the stock), use a potato masher and mash the potatoes to the desired consistency and then add in all the “Potatoes After Mashing” ingredients.
  • Stir until well combined and adjust any seasonings to taste.
  • Remove the meatloaf from the oven and carefully transfer to a serving dish or platter using two spatulas supporting the bottom.
  • Place some of the mashed potatoes in the center of the ring (for presentation) and place the rest in a serving dish.
