Halloween is my favorite holiday and I go all out with this Instant Pot Foot Meatloaf Recipe. It’s easy to make and so much fun!
Who can resist a foot-shaped meatloaf complete with gory blood detail?! It’s a sight to behold and will have everyone in the spirit of the festivities.
It’s easy to make, here’s how.
Using this Instant Pot Meatloaf Recipe, mix up your meatloaf.
Here’s what you’ll need at a glance:
Instant Pot Meatloaf Recipe Ingredients:
- 2 lbs hamburger
- 1 1/2 cups of Panko crumbs (you can use any bread crumbs)
- 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
- 4 large eggs
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tsp of McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 5 whole almonds
Instant Pot Meatloaf Recipe Red Meatloaf Sauce Ingredients:
- 5 tsp brown sugar
- 2/3 cup of ketchup
- 1 tbs dry mustard
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 bag small golden potatoes
Reserve 1-1/2 cup of the meat mixture.
Shape remaining meatloaf into an oval.
Tip: Use a butter knife to trace a circle that will fit in your Instant Pot on a piece of foil so you know how long your foot meatloaf can be to fit in nicely.
Once you have your oval, measure one cup of your reserved meatloaf and add to the larger end of the oval to shape the ankle and part of the leg. Create a “bowl” in the top to hold the sauce.
With the remaining meat mixture, create five meatballs getting smaller in size, for the toes.
Place the meatballs on the narrower end of the oval for toes.
Shape the toes by pinching and patting the meat mixture.
Add one almond in each toe for the toenail.
Mix up your sauce (it will serve as the gore!)
Add potatoes to the bottom of Instant Pot. They will be mashed potatoes in the end. Place trivet that came with Instant Pot on top of potatoes.
Add one cup beef broth to pot.
Now place your foot of meatloaf into the Instant Pot.
Fill cavity of “leg” with one-half the sauce.
Place lid on Instant Pot and press Manual for 25 minutes.
Quick Release when beeps.
Use foil to lift foot meatloaf out of Instant Pot and place on a cookie sheet.
Add remaining sauce to “leg cavity” and let drip down. Use a spoon to place sauce around the ankle for an especially gruesome effect.
Place under broiler for 5 minutes. KEEP AN EYE ON IT, it may not need a full five minutes. You just want it to get “sticky”.
Remove from broiler and plate.
Remove potatoes from Instant Pot, place in a bowl, add a stick of butter and splash of milk and your blender to make mashed potatoes.
