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.

How to Make Mama's Microwave Meatloaf


  1. Combine soup mix, stuffing, water, and ketchup in a large bowl and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Then mix in all remaining ingredients.
    Shape into a loaf or a ring in a 9" glass pie plate. Cover with waxed paper.
  2. Cook in microwave for about 20 -24 minutes. If no turntable, turn meatloaf a quarter turn every 5 minutes. (This time is for a 900-1000 watt oven. If yours is a 1200 watt oven, less time is required.)
  3. Allow to stand about 10-12 minutes before slicing.
