Instant Pot Turkey Meatloaf with Potato Wedges

This Instant Pot turkey meatloaf with potato wedges takes an old school comfort food combination of meatloaf and potatoes and spices it up with Sriracha.

Instant Pot Turkey Meatloaf with Potato Wedges

Meatloaf belongs on the list of ultimate comfort foods. Pair it with mashed potatoes and some succotash, and you have an old-timey plate of good memories. In fact, one of my most popular posts on this blog is this barbecue meatloaf.

This turkey meatloaf has an extra kick. It is spiced with Sriracha both in the meat mixture as well as in the ketchup glaze.

Instant Pot Turkey Meatloaf

While this meatloaf is made with ground turkey, if you want to, you can substitute ground beef, or a combination of ground beef, pork, and/or lamb.

This is my first try at making meatloaf in a pressure cooker, and I'm super happy with the results. I also love that you can wrap up the potatoes and then stack them in the pressure cooker under the meatloaf and prepare and cook an entire meal all at once and in under and hour, including prep time.

How to Make Instant Pot Meatloaf

First, you mix the ingredients for the meatloaf, which include ground turkey, onions, panko bread crumbs, eggs, parsley, garlic, oregano, cumin, and Sriracha. 

Next, you press the meatloaf mixture into a 7-inch springform pan (affiliate link). Alternatively, if you don't have a 7-inch springform pan, you can press the meatloaf mixture into a 7 inch round and wrap it in foil. 

To make the potatoes, you cut scrubbed russet potatoes into wedges and place them in foil packets that you stack below the meatloaf in the springform pan. The potatoes cook at the same time as the meatloaf. 

Once you've pressure cooked the meatloaf and potatoes, you coat the meatloaf with a ketchup Sriracha mixture an broil the meatloaf. 

Finally, you smash the potato wedges with a fork, add some butter, salt, and pepper, and serve them with the meatloaf.

Serve this turkey meatloaf with the potatoes along with a salad or mixed vegetables, and dinner rolls...  comfort food on a plate.

Cooking with an Instant Pot or Multi-Cooker: 

I bought an Instant Pot about four years ago but I have not really used it to its full potential, which is why I was excited to join Multicooker Monday, a group started by Sue of Palatable Pastime. 

I've yet to try most of the functions other than pressure cooking, but I'm looking forward to it. For example, I understand that you can use the yogurt function for proofing bread! 

Not only that, the group is making recipes with sous vide, air fryers, and slow cookers. Follow along on the third Monday of every month for recipes to take advantage of the kitchen gadget you may have purchased but haven't used as much as you might have expected. We will give you delicious excuses for why you bought them. 

I'm excited to check out everyone's amazing sounding recipes!
