Instant Pot Meatloaf and Potatoes

Instant Pot Meatloaf and Potatoes

“What's great about this Instant Pot recipe is it's actually two in one! The meatloaf and potatoes are cooked to perfection at the same time. We have a smaller 5 quart Instant Pot so we opted to half the recipe and use two mini loaf pans side by side; they fit perfectly. The sage in the meatloaf shines with a great savory flavor. We loved the tangy sweetness of the glaze. Potatoes are made to go with meatloaf and these are full of delicious garlic, buttery goodness and topped with yummy Parmesan cheese.” - Kitchen Crew
