I love meatloaf, I really do! My Mom’s Meatloaf is my ultimate comfort food but we are not a one meatloaf town. This one has sausage and ground beef in it, that makes it a close second to my favorite!

Start by putting the potatoes in the Instant Pot and a cup of water or chicken broth-your choice!

Then I made a “bowl” out of a couple of pieces of foil to hold my meat loaves. This keeps the juices with my meatloaf and keeps my potatoes away from the grease. This is the after picture of the cooked meatloaf, because I forgot to take a before!

Once the timer goes off I remove the meatloaf, place on a dish or cookie sheet that is oven safe, brush with the topping and broil for a few minutes.

While the meatloaf is under the broiler I smash the potatoes right in the Instant Pot!

This recipe intrigues me for a couple of reasons. It is a very dense meatloaf and makes excellent meatloaf sandwiches with the leftovers! We always cook the whole recipe but you could easily cook one and freeze the other one for another meal.
