This Instant Pot Meatloaf Recipe is a keeper. We have revamped our traditional recipe and created a healthier version that is delicious. It is the perfect comfort food meal your whole family will adore. Best of all it is Weight Watchers friendly!
Healthy Traditional Meatloaf Recipe
We are including both Instant Pot and oven instructions in our printable below for your convenience. Making the traditional meatloaf recipe typically starts with a base of ground beef and ground pork. However, if you are watching calories this can be a bit heavier on the caloric intake. We made some adjustments and created a moist, flavorful, and easy meatloaf recipe that works to fit into our daily points while also giving that comfort food factor we want.
We use the Instant Pot DUO60 6-quart 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker for this recipe alongside a simple round bakeware piece. This CorningWare Bakeware set is our favorite since they fit easily into the Instant Pot and come with lids ideal for storing leftovers in the refrigerator.
