I have never gotten into microwave cooking. They're fantastic - vital actually - for reheating. But cooking? Eh. The other night though I had meatloaf on the menu and almost gave up on it because the idea of turning on the oven for an hour was too much to bear! In the end I decided what the bad can it be? The answer. Amazing! Half the time, a fraction of the heat and possibly better than ever!

  • 1
    egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp
    worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp
    beef soup base (or boullion)
  • 1 c
  • 1 1/2 lb
    90% lean ground beef
  • 1 c
    corn flake crumbs or bread crumbs

How to Make Meatloaf


  1. Whip egg, Worcestershire sauce, soup base gravy & pepper together in mixing bowl.

    NOTE: I had leftover chicken gravy that I used even though it was a "beef" recipe. It was wonderful so dont be afraid to use what you have even if it seems "wrong". How will you ever know what's good, bad or indifferent if you don't experiment?
  2. Mix in beef and corn flake crumbs
  3. Place in a glass loaf pan.
  4. FOR MICROWAVE: Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Cook @ 70% power for 22 minutes. Uncover and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
    FOR THE OVEN: Bake uncovered @ 375° for 40-45 minutes.
