I have had a go-to meatloaf recipe for years. So good that we never have leftovers! Having no leftovers bummed me out just a little because my favorite part about meatloaf has a sandwich the next day. I decided to make meatloaf burgers in my Instant Pot to have those delicious meatloaf sandwiches on night one! These meatloaf burgers are super easy! I have been playing around with the recipe for the perfect meatloaf glaze for years now! If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can absolutely make these meatloaf burgers in the oven or on the grill.
I have made meatloaf in my Instant Pot ever since I had one, and it is one of the easiest meals to prepare in your pot. I even have a meatloaf recipe in my book that people have raved about. I have spent years playing around with the perfect meatloaf glaze.
Growing up, when other kids complained about bringing meatloaf sandwiches in for lunch, I secretly loved it. So I thought, why not have meatloaf on a sandwich the first night instead of waiting for leftovers? Plus, grilling season is coming up, and if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can totally cook these on the grill!

These sliders are so good! I personally love the little Pepperidge Farm slider buns, but you can also make these bigger if you want to serve these on a bigger bun.
