Meatloaf Night – How Presidential can it be?

This meatloaf recipe is my grandmother’s and the only one I ever make.  I will admit I have tweaked it a bit.  Instead of baking it in the oven, I use the microwave.  Moist and perfect every time.

1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Cup Uncooked Oatmeal
1 Egg
1 Small Can Tomato Sauce
1 Small Onion Chopped
Salt and Pepper

Mix together well; get your hands in it and really work it together.  Take a round glass baking dish (cake pan size) and invert a custard bowl in the center.  The custard bowl acts like a vacuum and all the fat from the meat just goes right into the bowl.  Spray the glass dish with Pam and then gently place handfuls of the meat mixture in the dish to form a ring.  You don't want to pack it in.

Cook in the microwave for 8 to 10 minutes.  While it is cooking mix together the glaze.

1/2 Cup Ketchup
1 Teaspoon Mustard (your favorite kind)
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

Remove Meatloaf from microwave after initial cooking time and top with the yummy glaze.  Return to microwave and cooking for 3 more minutes.

Let Meatloaf Night Begin……….
