Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add seasonings; mix well. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Pat into a 9-in. x 5-in. microwave-safe dish. Combine the soy sauce and honey; spread over loaf. Cover and microwave on high for 18-1/2 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160°, turning dish a quarter turn every 10 minutes; drain. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: You can easily vary the flavor of Microwave Meat Loaf by replacing the oats with cornmeal or wheat bran. Or if you want to add a little more zing, use chili sauce in place of the ketchup and mustard instead of soy sauce.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
