Instant Pot Meatballs

One thing that we choose not to do in the RV is fill the propane tanks. We don’t have a need to do this, but it DOES prevent us from having a stove. This really isn’t an issue, but when the craving hits, for things like hamburgers, and it just happens to be a weekend it’s raining in San Diego (go figure) – we have to improvise.

From that was birthed this Meatball recipe!

Dave was very energetic for this dinner – as you can see in the video below! Check out the full recipe after the video.


  • 1 Bread Heels (chopped)
  • 1/4 Cup Cream
  • 1 Egg
