I love my Ninja Foodi, and getting to try out new Ninja Foodi ground beef recipes are keeping my husband happy. He loves beef, so when I took my favorite meatloaf and converted it to my Ninja Foodi he was excited to be the taste tester.
Ninja Foodi Meatloaf
You might be thinking what makes cooking meatloaf in the Foodi so special? Well, you use less energy than the oven, it won't heat up your house like the oven does. And it tastes just as good.
What Do I Need To Make This Ninja Foodi Ground Beef Meatloaf
Ground Beef | Now I used classic ground beef, but feel free to do one pound beef and one pound pork sausage if you want to alter the flavor a bit.
Breadcrumbs | We did plain breadcrumbs for this recipe. I know some love oats or even crackers.
Eggs | This is going to help your meatloaf hold the shape and create that loaf of meat you are wanting.
Worcestershire | I like to think of this as a secret ingredient. It adds so much flavor you will be amazed.
Dijon Mustard | You could use a classic yellow mustard, but we love the kick this mustard offers when paired with the other ingredients.
Yogurt or Sour Cream| If you use yogurt make sure to reach for plain yogurt. Nothing that is flavored.
Ketchup | You can use the ketchup to dress up the top of your meatloaf. Or feel free to use mustard or even bbq sauce.
How to Make Meatloaf in Ninja Foodi
Start by mixing all your ingredients in the stand mixer or use your hands to incorporate all your ingredients.
You will then add water into your Ninja, place the meatloaf in the proper container, and pressure cook as directed below.
Once you are done pressure cooking, remove and add your meatloaf topping. Then use the crisping lid to help brown up and cook your meatloaf on top.
Slice and serve up with all your favorite sides!

Honestly, meatloaf is so versatile, you could essentially pair it with anything.
Cooking Supplies for Making Meatloaf
- 7-inch springform cheesecake cake pan | Springform pans are for more than just making cheesecake. Whether making cheesecake, cake, meatloaf, or taco lasagna, this pan is so versatile.
- Parchment paper rounds | We like to use these pre-cut parchment paper circles to line a pan when cooking or baking.
- Red silicone trivet | This trivet is the absolute best for lifting pans in and out of an Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi.
If you have meatloaf leftover go ahead and transfer into an airtight container and store for up to three days in the fridge.
Or if you want you can freeze any of the leftovers. Just freeze in a proper container for about three months.
Thaw in the fridge overnight, or heat in the oven wrapped in foil. It needs foil or it can dry out as it reheats in the oven.
