For the Meatloaf:

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the sauce:

  • 1- 15 ounce can of tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

For the mashed potatoes:

  • 8 Yukon gold potatoes chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley


  • Mix all the ingredients for the meatloaf together and set to the side.
  • In a bowl mix together a can of tomato sauce with brown sugar. Whisk until incorporated, set to the side.
  • Rinse and chop the potatoes. Place in the Instant Pot along with garlic cloves, water, and salt. Place a metal rack on top of the potatoes making it as even as possible.
  • Create an aluminum foil pan and place on top of the rack. Then, carefully transfer mixed meat into the foil pan. Shape into a loaf and pour 1/4-1/3 cup of the sweet tomato sauce on top.
  • Close lid making sure the steam valve is closed. Set on “manual” for 15 minutes. Once it’s done cooking let it naturally release for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to broil on low.
  • Force any remaining pressure out and carefully remove the lid. Carefully pull the meatloaf out of the Instant Pot.
  • Then, drain any remaining water from the potatoes. Add potatoes back to Instant Pot with butter. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes. Then mix in the milk and parsley until desired consistency.
  • Place the meatloaf on a sheet pan, and place in the oven for 2 minutes or until crisp on top.
  • Once done you can slice the meatloaf and serve with additional tomato sauce. Divide mashed potatoes and meatloaf evenly among plates and enjoy.
