Applesauce Meatloaf in the Instant Pot
Good day friends! This is a strange sounding recipe, I’m not gonna lie. Recently a friend and I were going through an old southern cookbook written by some ladies that belonged to a church in the heart of Alabama. We had a lot of fun going through the book and had some chuckles along the way. Such as this one, applesauce meatloaf. By the way this is the same cookbook I grabbed the Butterfinger cake from HERE. Today I am sharing how to make an applesauce meatloaf in the Instant Pot. Don’t knock it till you try it. It really was delicious and so easy. No eggs needed.
All you need for this recipe is 2 lbs of ground meat. 1 package of sirloin and 1 package of ground pork, with sage preferably. If you can’t find the sage sausage simply add the sage in yourself. You can typically find sage sausage near the break fast sausages in a roll package. 1 cup of applesauce, ketchup, pepper, garlic salt, bread crumbs and some seasoned salt.
I was surprised how nicely the meat held together. I used my 7 ‘ Spring form/bundt Insta-pan to make this loaf in. It was very high and dense and can certainly feed 4-6 comfortably.
The applesauce and sage sausage really went well together. Not too sweet, but just right with the ground sirloin and other ingredients to off set it.

In case you have wondered why I create recipe cards for all my recipes, I now can reveal our new limited edition bamboo recipe box.
I would consider myself and my husband for that matter, nostalgic kinds of people. We love collecting treasures, and have been passed down many cool and unique things from family. Now-a days, exchanging recipes seems to be a lost art. Everything is on line and digital. I love a good recipe box to keep on our counter and thumb through family recipes. I thought you might like that too. Plus, all my Instant Pot recipes can be printed out and put in your new box. This makes for a great gift, wedding, mother’s day, birthday, and any special occasion. Enjoy.
