READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Buzymomof3

We got this from a microwave cookbook when we got our first microwave in the 70's. I actually prefer baking it, but either way my family loves it.

Made this for a great quick easy weeknight meal and served it along with baked potatoes and corn. I only made it for 1 lb. of ground beef, but still used one egg and did use crushed saltine crackers for the bread crumb. I realized once reading the instructions/ingredients that it didn't include onions and I love the flavor onion adds to the meatloaf so added about 1/4 cup of minced onions. I enjoyed the changes of adding seasoned salt and the brown sugar and mustard with the ketchup. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Holiday Tag.
