Instant Pot Turkey Meatloaf and Zucchini Halves

Turkey Meatloaf That Tastes Good and Made with an Instant Pot®

Everybody loves their Instant Pot®, but not every turkey meatloaf is good.  Most are dry, or just plain fall apart.  This healthier version is good for you and it stays together.  A turkey meatloaf that tastes good and made easy with your Instant Pot® is a win win in my book.

Serve with Perfect Mashed Potatoes for a classic comfort food dinner.

This healthier version of meatloaf is easy to make and easy to clean up. You will need a way to lift the meatloaf in and out of the pot. If you have a roasting/steamer rack with handles, this works the best. If not, fold three 18-inch long foil sheets in half lengthwise to make a "spoke" and spray with cooking oil.

Ingredients
  

Instructions
 

  • Combine 2 tablespoons of the marinara sauce with ketchup and set aside.
  • Combine remaining marinara sauce, bell pepper, quinoa, egg, Italian seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Mix ground turkey and sausage into the wet mixture. Shape into 5" X 7" loaf.
  • Place water in bottom of Instant Pot. If using foil strips, place a trivet in bottom of pot with foil strips overlapping to make a "Spoke". Or, place roasting rack in bottom of pot. Place the meatloaf on top of foil strips/roasting rack.

  • Seal the lid. Close the valve, and set the Manual/Pressure Cook button for 35 minutes. (Make sure foil pieces are inside of closed lid).
  • Use a quick pressure release. Carefully remove meatloaf to a platter. Do not discard water inside the Instant Pot. Spoon marinara and ketchup sauce over the meatloaf and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, drizzle olive oil evenly over zucchini halves. Place 4 halves on trivet/roasting rack and top with other 4 halves.
  • Seal the lid. Close the valve and set the Manual/Pressure Cook button for 3 minutes. Use a quick pressure release.
  • Slice the meatloaf and serve with zucchini halves.

Notes

A silicone sling works really well for getting the meatloaf in and out of the pot.  This is a "nice to have" tool if you use your Instant Pot® a lot.
