Tastefully Simple BBQ Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf in the Instant Pot

This one is a keeper, ladies and gentlemen!  Super yummy and juicy meatloaf!  I made this so I could have some cold meatloaf sandwiches with mayo for lunch for a few days.  But, that would require leftovers….maybe next time!

This recipe I found on Pressure Cooking Today was my inspiration for this recipe.  I hadn’t really even thought about the possibility of meatloaf in my magic pot until I saw it.

  1.  I soaked 3 slices of white bread in a bowl with 1/2 cup of milk and let it sit while I got out the rest of the ingredients.   I mixed together the bread slices, 2 pounds of ground beef, 3/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, 1 Tbl (half a cap full)  Tastefully Simple Seasoned Salt, and 3 eggs and formed it into a loaf that would fit in the inner pot of the Instant Pot.20160817_165032
  2. I took a long strip of aluminum foil and folded in half.  I made sure the loaf was as wide as the strip.  I put the loaf on the foil and covered it with strips of bacon.
  3. I spread 1/2 cup of Tastefully Simple Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce all over the outside of the bacon.  20160817_16583320160817_170232
  4. I added 2 cups of water to the inner pot. I used the foil as handles to pick up the loaf and put it onto the trivet.  I used the trivet handles and foil to lower it into the pot.  I set the pot to MANUAL and used the +/- buttons to adjust the time to 20 minutes.
  5. At the end of the time, I did a quick pressure release and temperature check and it was a few degrees from where I wanted it, so I put I spread another 1/4 cup of the sauce on the top and put it in the oven at 400 for a few minutes more to finish cooking and to caramelize the sauce. 20160817_19383720160817_19385720160817_193935
  6. It was REALLY good!  No dried out meatloaf for us ever again!  Next time I will probably add some Tastefully Simple Onion Onion and try sharp cheddar cheese instead of Parmesan.  20160817_194546
  7. Happy cooking!
