To begin I placed 2 pounds of lean ground beef into a large mixing bowl.

Then I dumped in some gluten free bread crumbs, diced yellow onion, salsa of choice, eggs, almond milk, gluten free taco seasoning mix, dried parsley, dried basil, salt and pepper.

I started blending all the ingredients with a rubber spatula.

To make sure all the ingredients were well combined I finished the mixing process with my hands to form a big meat patty.

Then I greased an Instant Pot bundt pan and packed half of the meat mixture into it.  I created a little hollow in the meat.

Then I pressed one cup of grated mozzarella cheese with jalapeños and red chiles into the hollow I had created.  

I packed the remaining meat mixture in on top of the cheese. Before placing the pan in the Instant Pot I covered it with tinfoil that I had sprayed with cooking spray.  

I made a hole in the tinfoil over the hole in the bundt pan to let steam escape.

Next I poured 1 1/2 cups of water into the Instant Pot and placed the trivet inside. I lowered the bundt pan onto the trivet.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 30 minutes.

While the meatloaf was cooking I prepared the sauce by pouring some salsa of choice, some bbq sauce of choice and some pure maple syrup into a small bowl.

I stirred them all together well. You could heat the sauce up a bit in the microwave or leave it as is.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 10 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

Then I carefully removed the trivet and bundt pan.  I removed the tinfoil and tilted the pan to pour off any grease.

After checking for grease I immediatley inverted the meatloaf onto a serving dish.

I spooned some of the sauce over the loaf and reserved the rest for individual servings.

The Instant Pot bundt pan takes any recipe from plain to fancy!  This Fancy Meatloaf, draped in sauce, makes a nice presentation on any dinner table.

Serve this Instant Pot Fancy Meatloaf, smothered in reserved sauce, with sides of mashed potatoes and coleslaw for a complete dinner the whole family will appreciate!
