Apricot Meatloaf Pressure Cooker Recipe

Easy Apricot Meatloaf Pressure Cooker Recipe

A long time ago in a place that seems far away. I was a little girl. I used to sit at the table until I was done eating dinner. That was before parents knew better or maybe they knew more than we do now. I was forced to eat whatever was brought to my plate. I hated most everything until meatloaf entered my life.

I guess that is why I have so many easy meatloaf recipes on my site. I love this apricot meatloaf recipe because it pairs the sweet with the savory. It is an incredible way to get kids like me big or small to eat a great meal without bribery, so I had to make a pressure cooker version of it.
