Ingredients

  • Ground beef: lean ground beef.
  • Whole wheat crackers: cracker crumbs are used to hold the meat mixture together.
  • Eggs: eggs help to bind the mini meatloaf bites together.
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic salt: you can use plain garlic powder if you’re trying to reduce your sodium intake.
  • Pepper
  • Italian seasoning
  • Coconut aminos: coconut aminos add a great flavor to this dish. If you don’t have, or can’t find, coconut aminos you can use low sodium Worcestershire or soy sauce. You can learn more about coconut aminos here.
  • Tomato sauce: low sodium tomato sauce
  • Tomato paste
  • Honey honey adds a nice sweetness to the sauce without having to use refined brown sugar.
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Beef broth: low sodium beef or chicken broth, or plain water if you’re not cooking string beans.
  • String beans: fresh, trimmed and cut.

Instant Pot Meatloaf Bite Directions

  1. In a large bowl mix together all of the meatloaf ingredients.
  2. Once the meatloaf is mixed, fill each well of your silicone egg bite mold.
  3. Cover the meatloaves with foil or a *heat resistant* silicone food cover and place them on a trivet, off center so that the cups aren’t resting over each other.
  4. Add beef broth and string beans to the inner Instant Pot.
  5. Carefully place the trivet of mini meatloaf on top of the string beans.
  6. Close the lid of your Instant Pot and turn the pressure valve to sealing.
  7. Cook on high pressure using the manual setting for 35 minutes.
  8. While the meatloaves are cooking, mix together in a small bowl your sauce ingredients and set aside.
  9. When the cook time is done, release the pressure using the quick release method.
  10. Remove the trivet of meatloaves and the string beans from your Instant Pot.
  11. Take the meatloaves out of the silicone egg bite mold and arrange them on a baking sheet. Pour the tomato sauce mixture on top of the mini meatloaves.
  12. Place the baking sheet in the oven, under broil, for 3-5 minutes. Just long enough for the sauce to set.
  13. Let the meatloaves rest for a couple minutes and then serve with the string beans.

Recipe tips

  • If you don’t have egg bite mold, you can also use silicone cupcake liners or muffin cups in your Instant Pot. 
  • WW Points are calculated using 95% fat ground beef. You can also use ground turkey if you prefer.
  • These freeze and reheat in the microwave very nicely.
  • If you don’t want to cook green beans you’ll still need either broth or water in your Instant Pot – that’s how it comes to pressure. Just omit the green beans and add 1 ½ cups of water or broth to the pot before you add the trivet of meatloaves.
  • Meatloaf and potatoes just go together. If you want a WW friendly potato recipe, this Garlic Smashed Potatoes recipe is just 2 points for blue and green, and 1 for purple. These meatloaf balls would be perfect on top of the potatoes!

    2. 5 stars
      I’m always looking for new healthy recipes that my family would love. Thank you

    3. Is 35 mins in the IP correct? Is that because there are 2 trays in there? All the other recipes I see say 15mins??

      1. Do the other recipes use the molds? The molds take forever to cook in :)

    4. How many is one serving done in oven

      1. I’d divide your recipe into 7 equal servings. I can’t tell you because I don’t know what type of pan you used :)
