  1. In large bowl, combine first 6 ingredients, ½ cup Bacon Pepper Jam and 1½ teaspoons Seasoned Pepper. Mix until just combined, being sure not to over mix. Form into a greased 8-inch round cake pan*.
  2. In a 6-quart or larger multi-cooker, add wire rack and 1½ cups of hot water. Place cake pan on rack. Top with second wire rack*.
  3. Pierce potatoes in several places with fork. Lightly spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with remaining ½ teaspoon Seasoned Pepper. Place on second rack in pot. Set multi-cooker to Pressure Cooker on HIGH for 25 minutes.
  4. When meatloaf and potatoes are done, allow a 10 minute natural release, then continue with a quick release. Remove potatoes and meatloaf; drain off grease from meatloaf. Spread remaining Bacon Pepper Jam over meatloaf and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve potatoes topped with desired toppings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooooo GOOD!!! I do NOT like meatloaf. However, I purchased the 30 meal kit and vowed to make and try each meal in it and expand my family’s meal menu. This meatloaf is SO DANG GOOD!!! Seriously. I truly do not like meatloaf but ate two servings of this and will probably hide the rest in the back of the fridge so I can have the leftovers! We paired this with baked potatoes and a bacon Caesar salad. Yum! Will definitely be adding this to the rotation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Meatloaf EVER I did not have the ability to make this in the slow cooker, so I made it following the recipe and using my meatloaf pan baking in the oven for an hour. It was super delicious and flavorful! I made mashed potatoes to go with it and it was a huge hit! This is my favorite meatloaf recipe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meatloaf bursting with flavor! I cooked this in my pressure cooker along with the potatoes. It (meatloaf) did take an extra 15 minutes. It was moist and full of flavor. Besides cooking it a little longer I will also either use less cheese or a different cheese all together. My family wants me to try it again with these changes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super moist and flavorful! I only fixed the meatloaf part of this recipe. I am not an experienced insta pot user. I cooked for the recommend 25 minutes but it was not quite done so I finished it in the microwave. The meatloaf was so moist and flavorful. We will definitely make this again!
