BBQ bacon meatloaf is a family friendly, comfort food dinner! Made in an Instant Pot or pressure cooker, you can make this easy recipe in only 25 minutes!
I have another delicious Instant Pot recipe to share with you, and I think it is the most delicious meatloaf ever! In addition to red sauce smothered burritos, this BBQ bacon meatloaf recipe is one of my favorite Instant Pot recipes. One reason for that is because the finished meatloaf comes out so moist! Meatloaf is easy to over cook in an oven, but using an Instant Pot takes the guesswork out of how long it should cook. Plus, cleaning the IP is much quicker and easier than scrubbing a loaf pan.
Just like the burritos, this meatloaf recipe is inspired by one from Barbara, at Pressure Cooking Today. Her BBQ bacon meatloaf recipe is incredibly delicious!
If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, buy yourself one soon. You won’t regret it. Nor will you regret making BBQ bacon meatloaf in it!
Prepping the BBQ bacon meatloaf to be cooked is easy, too.
You will need a long, thick strip of aluminum foil, doubled over. The foil strip should be 17 inches long and 8 inches wide. It will become a harness, cradling the meatloaf above the water in the IP as it cooks.
Place the foil into the Instant Pot like this:
The foil harness will keep the BBQ bacon meatloaf from getting wet as it cooks in the IP.
When you make the meatloaf, you can use any type of barbecue sauce you like. I like the extra smoky kick of spice that the adobo BBQ sauce from Best Boy and Co has, so that’s what I use.
