Helpful hints

  • Compare brands and select the lowest sodium ketchup.

Microwave Meat Loaf in a Mug

Sounds good and quick. I will try it when I have a little energy. I think I will try putting some brown sugar and cheese in it also. I like cobbler's idea.

I wish I would have seen this recipe last night. I made my traditional meatloaf in a loaf pan and it was so good. I could have used this recipe for cooking it and had a single serving for dinner.
