Mama's Microwave Meatloaf

Susan Feliciano


My mother was slow to accept the use of a microwave, but once hooked, she loved using it, especially for cooking things that would normally take a longer time in the oven. This meatloaf recipe was one of those. I found the card while cleaning and organizing in my kitchen. I would suggest using a microwave-safe tube-shape pan for even cooking, but she would use a 9-inch pie plate and form a round loaf in it. Or you could form a ring in the pie plate, like a large doughnut shape with a hole in the middle, which helps with microwave cooking.
