Hi there friends! This week has been a complete test kitchen around here. It hasn’t even been a week since I have owned my Ninja Foodi and I have tested out at least 10 recipes. I will be slowly rolling those out to you. My issue with testing is that I am very bad about stopping and photographing. I am too focused on what I am preparing and the how to. Today I am sharing how to make a meatloaf in the Ninja Foodi. Last week I shared my Baked Macaroni and Cheese in the Ninja Foodi HERE.  

You can find the Ninja Foodi here on Amazon. (Affiliate link) You do not pay more for ordering for my affiliate. I just receive a few pennies from Amazon:)

Feel free to join my NINJA foodi group here. Lots of action, tips and tricks to learn!

How to make meatloaf in the Ninja Foodi

I am truly enjoying the features, the ease of use, and the fact I can crisp, bake or brown whatever I make in the Pressure Cooker method. I used to find it a chore to remove my chicken, meatloaf or even cakes on occasion to brown them up. Sometimes I would just skip it and things didn’t always taste the same. My family missed that and enjoys a brown or crisp to a lot of my dishes. Fear no more.

The meatloaf I made was the same recipe I made a few weeks ago using my mini flower pan HERE. It was a smaller prettier version. You can use any recipe your family enjoys, or choose one of mine.

As you can see, I change up my meatloaf recipes often. Considering I make it every two weeks it is fun to try new recipes. This is the recipe I used, but I added a little chili sauce, topped with onions and cheese. The method however, is different and I will leave that at the bottom of this post. I also made a side of red roasted potatoes in the Ninja Foodi. For those I simply diced up my reds, seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper then set in the basket after I removed my meatloaf, added one cup of water again to the pot, set on High Pressure for 8 minutes, quick released then set on broil to get them a little crispy. PERFECTO!



Meatloaf recipe in the Ninja Foodi


  • 2-2.5 lbs Veal, pork beef meatloaf mix
  • 1 packet Lipton onion soup
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup Bread crumbs
  • Pepper to taste


  • Mix meatloaf accordingly with all ingredients. Be sure to mix well. I use rubber gloves to get in the nitty gritty of the bowl.
  • Using a springform pan, assemble pan. Add meatloaf mix to the pan, patting down firmly as you go to be sure the mixture is nice and even in the pan.
  • Add one cup of water to the Ninja Foodi. Press start, press the pressure cooking option, Place meatloaf either on trivet or inside the basket it comes with. Top with onion. Set to High pressure for 30 minutes. Quick release your pressure cooker valve. Always be sure it is away from face, cabinets and walls. Add cheese and set the Ninja to broil option for 7 minutes. ENJOY. We topped ours off with a delicious honey mustard dressing.
