Mashed Potatoes:
2 Pounds of potatoes
1 ½ Cups of chicken broth
½ Cup of Milk
2 Tablespoons of butter
½ Teaspoon salt

Meatloaf Mixture:
2 Pounds of ground beef
½ Cup of plain breadcrumbs
⅓ Cup of milk
2 Eggs
⅓ Cup of ketchup
½ Cup of sautéed onion- chopped
2 Tablespoons onion soup mix
½ Teaspoon garlic powder
1 Teaspoon minced garlic
1 Teaspoon paprika
2 Teaspoons Italian seasoning
2 Teaspoons parsley
1 Teaspoon salt
½ Teaspoon black pepper

Topping- I would recommend doubling this recipe if you like to dip your meatloaf in the sauce! :
⅓ Cup of ketchup
⅓ Cup of BBQ sauce
1 Tablespoon of yellow mustard
1 Tablespoon of brown sugar

Mashed Potatoes
Peel and quarter the potatoes
Place potatoes in the bottom of the Ninja Foodi pot- make sure they are evenly spread out and laying flat
Add chicken broth
Place the trivet on top of the potatoes- make sure the trivet is level
Make the meatloaf and follow meatloaf cooking instructions- instructions are below
After you remove the meatloaf from the Ninja Foodi- remove the trivet
Leave the potatoes in the Ninja Foodi- make sure the pot is turned off
Mash the potatoes- do NOT use a metal masher. Be sure that you use a plastic masher or you will destroy your inner pot.
Add butter, milk and salt- Stir
Enjoy! :)
Add all meatloaf ingredients to a large mixing bowl
Mix ingredients until evenly combined
You can use your hands or a mixer. Be sure that you do not over mix the meatloaf mixture. Over mixing will create a dense, gummy texture. We are going for a light and fluffy texture.
Lightly grease your pan. You can use a baking pan or a springform pan. The meatloaf will produce a substantial amount of melted fat, based on the fat % in your meat so you do not want to over grease the pan.
Evenly spread the meatloaf in the pan, You can use a baking pan or springform pan- do not overfill. If you over fill your pan you will have a mess. The melted fat will overflow onto your potatoes. Yuck!
Place the meatloaf pan (in sling) on top of the trivet. Try to get it to sit as level as possible.
Close the Ninja Foodi pressure cooker lid and set to high for 30 minutes. Set the valve to the “seal” position.
Cook for 30 minutes. When the timer goes off, natural release for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, quick release the remaining pressure and open the Ninja Foodi.
Carefully remove your meatloaf from the Ninja Foodi. This is where the silicone sling or foil comes in very handy!
Remove the extra grease from the pan around and on top of the meatloaf. You can use a turkey baster for this….or carefully pour it into the trash. Do not pour in the sink. The fat will clog your pipes.
Evenly coat the top of the meatloaf with the topping.- instructions below
Make mashed potatoes using instructions above. Once potatoes are finished, remove them from the Ninja Foodi pot.
Place trivet back into Ninja Foodi pot.
Put the meatloaf (in a sling) back into Ninja Foodi on top of the trivet.
Cook on "broil" for 5-10 minutes
When the topping has reached your desired color, remove meatloaf from Ninja Foodi.
Slice and serve with mashed potatoes.
Mix ketchup, bbq sauce, mustard and brown sugar together.
Set aside until it's time to top the meatloaf!
