  • This recipe can be cooked in the microwave, although I prefer it baked in the oven. Place in a glass or other microwave safe baking dish (non metal) and cook on high for 16 to 20 minutes. Rotate every 5 to 7 minutes if your microwave does not rotate. Let loaf rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  • The top of the meatloaf can be covered with 1/2 cup tomato sauce or ketchup if desired for added flavor.
