Meatloaf and microwaves? I could've sworn that combo wouldn't have worked. Well, I was wrong. This turned out great! We've made this recipe twice now, because it has been too hot to use the oven. The 1st time w/ground turkey, & the 2nd time w/lean ground beef. The turkey produced much less grease & produced a very dense loaf, compared to the beef version. Overall, yummy either way, but my family prefers the turkey version better (& we are big beef eaters!) While I don't think this recipe will ever replace my favorite oven-baked variety, I would not hesitate to serve this to my family on any given night. Especially great for evenings when you are in a rush. Meatloaf: fridge to table in under 30 minutes and tastes good w/out heating up the house...a definite 5 stars! Thanks, dividend!
I used this recipe with the following changes: used ground turkey instead of hamburger, used vegetable soup instead of tomato sauce, deleted the salt, used crushed saltines (didn't have oatmeal), used 1/2 chopped onion (didn't have instant minced), used 2 tspn of chopped garlic. Everything else I kept the same. Was delicious! Used this for a 4-H project with 8-10 year olds--they enjoyed it too!
Very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written except I added extra garlic powder for a total of 1/2 tsp and cut the salt to 1/2 tsp. I didn't use the sauce from the recipe. I topped mine with pizza sauce and then with parmesan and mozzarella. I used 93% ground beef so there really wasn't much grease. Everyone enjoyed it, there wasn't a piece left. I used a silicone loaf pan adn this worked out perfectly. I cooked it for 7 minutes and then in intervals of two minutes for a total of 15 minutes. I had topped it with the sauce and cheese in the last two minutes. Will be making again.
