When it’s 90 degrees outside, one of the last things you want to do is turn on your oven to make dinner. That’s when I will either fire up the grill outside or pull out my Instant Pot.
I’m sure by now most of you have heard about this wonderful kitchen gadget, so I won’t go on and on, except to again how much I love it.
Recently I wanted meatloaf, but turning my oven on for over an hour did not sound appealing. I did a little searching and decided to try it out in my Instant Pot.
It turned out great! It was super moist, which is hard to achieve with turkey. My husband said it was probably the best meatloaf he’s ever had. And it cooked in half the usual time, which made me a happy woman!
1 bell pepper, chopped (or 3-4 mini peppers) 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 pounds ground turkey
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (or nutritional yeast)
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
BBQ sauce if your choice
In a skillet, sauté the onions, peppers, and garlic in some olive oil until soft.
Add veggie mix to the ground turkey, garlic powder, onion powder, Parmesan, panko, and egg. Mix until well combined.
If using an Instant Pot, add 1 cup of water and insert the grate. Form the mixture into a loaf on a piece of foil. Fold the edges up forming a bowl-like shape around the loaf.
