This meatloaf IS SUPER 🙂 Super simple to make and already had all ingredients on hand, which is wonderful! The only thing different that I used was: instead of using the fresh onions and bell peppers I used an 8 oz package of frozen “Recipe Ready,” just because I was in a hurry to get dinner going! LOVE IT 🙂 Thanks so much!! This is definitely one recipe that is going in my recipe box 🙂 Nice change of pace from getting stuck in the rut of having the same things for dinner!

Great meatloaf. I could not find Chipolata Flavored Mashed Potatoes so I used a regular cheese flavored and it worked just fine. Personally don’t care for avocado but the dish was a hit even without it.

Truly amazing! Making it for the second time as I write this. We’re not avocado fans so we topped with French’s French Fried Onions. The whole family seems to love that little bit of crunch they give. I also double the recipe and form it into two separate 10×4 loaves on a broiler pan to be sure there is enough for left-overs the next day.


For the meatloaf:

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 2/3 cup ketchup, divided
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the potatoes:

  • 3 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth or water
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic Worcestershire sauce, 1/3 cup on the ketchup, parsley, salt and pepper with your hands until evenly combined. Place mixture in a disposable loaf pan or form your own out of aluminum foil.
  2. Arrange potatoes in the bottom of the Instant Pot in an even layer. Pour broth or water over the top. Place the wire rack that comes with the Instant Pot over the potatoes. Set meatloaf on top.
  3. Close lid, make sure steam release is set to sealed, and set to manual mode (on high pressure) for 25 minutes. Once done, use quick release to release pressure.
  4. Remove meatloaf using handles on wire rack and drain off any extra liquid. Brush with remaining ketchup and, if desired, place under broiler in oven for 3 minutes to caramelize.
  5. Meanwhile, add heavy cream or half-and-half, sour cream, butter, and salt and pepper to the potatoes in the Instant Pot and mash until creamy. Enjoy!
