Total Time

Because this meat loaf cooks in the microwave, it's easy to prepare after a day's work. My Whole family finds each succulent slice tasty and nourishing. - Suzanne Ritchot, Ste. Anne Manitoba


  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt, dried marjoram and dried thyme
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add seasonings; mix well. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Pat into a 9x5-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 thermometer reads 160°, turning dish a quarter turn every 10 minutes; drain. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
<b>Editor's Note:</b> 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.
