Simple Instant Pot Swedish Meatballs Recipe

As some of you might know from my previous posts, I LOVE my Instant potAnd after this simple Swedish meatballs recipe I am more in love than ever. Swedish Meatballs are a family favorite around here, and while the traditional recipes aren’t too hard, they require multiple pans and some time. But not any longer. Want to know how long it took me to make this? 15 minutes. No seriously, 15 minutes from start to finish. Can it get any cooler than that? I don’t think so. So grab your instant pot and let’s get started! Oh, do not forget my favorite instant pot dessert. Apples with ice cream.

You are going to love this simple recipe for making Swedish Meatballs in your Instant Pot. Using frozen meatballs, mushroom soup, broth, egg noodles and sour cream.

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. This Apricot Meatloaf Pressure Cooker Recipe is a winner!
