I have made this recipe many times, but my favorite way to fix it is in the crockpot instead of the microwave. I just cook it on low for about 6 hours or on high for 3 - 4 hours, and it is so scrumptious! The flavors blend way better than in the microwave. But if you need it in a hurry, the microwave method is the way to go!

A good meatloaf recipe. I reduced the mustard to 1 tbsp and reduced the sugar a bit as I don't like things too sweet. I liked the tang of the sauce. I will make this again.

Love this, have made it many times. Needs more eggs for sure. I make extra sauce and serve it over rice and veggies, when served this way the sauce does not really stand alone. I am thinking that next time I am going to add some sesame oil, ginger, soy sauce, and onion powder...
