    Here's what I think might be the difference. I freeze the meatloaf before I cook it. I cook it in the Instapot slow cooker for 6 hours or so. I use Spicy V8 juice as the liquid around it (and over it) and I put some ketchup on it a couple of hours before it's done. Sometimes I add potatoes and onions, sometimes not. But the V8 seems to permeate and make it tasty. I do spoon V8 over it a few times while it is cooking (that's why I add the ketchup late so it won't be washed off).

    Without a bunch of chopped veggies, it holds together well for sandwiches the next day.

    My grandmother's meatloaf was to die for........She had a meat grinder thingy and I am pretty sure she used half ground beef and half ground ham. There was always a faint scent of ham when her meatloaf was cooking. I haven't tried that but it might be a good option. She didn't use V8.......not sure what her liquid was. Beef broth maybe.
    I don't have an instapot, I wonder if I could do the same thing in a Crock-Pot?

    Your meatloaf sounds delicious.

    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    No thanks, most of what they cook is nasty, to me.

    Yes, you can do the same in a crock pot. I have an instant pot and do not use it because everything you can cook in it can be done better in a conventional style.

    I cannot make a decent meatloaf!

    I refuse to give up.

    Does anyone have a recipe that is always a big hit with the family?
    Now this is a thread I can sink my molars around!

    Meatloaf is pretty versatile. You can cook a big loaf and live off it for a while. First serving...hot...is a dinner dish. The cold stuff...can be sliced like a deli meat. A slab can also be used along side over easy eggs and hash brown for brekkie!

    Nothing like a cold meat loaf sandwich! Best thing eva on this earth.

    I am ok with that. Anyone that thinks the pigeon, including squab, tastes good... I have tried both and both are nasty.

    lol !!!

    If pigeons were edible they'd be an endangered species in every major population center.
