meatloaf mugs recipe


1 pound ground beef, extra lean

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats

1 large egg

1 (5.5 oz) can vegetable juice

1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped

1/4 cup carrots, finely chopped

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/4 cup ketchup



Stir together beef, oats, eggs, vegetable juice, onions, carrots, salt and pepper in a big bowl

Divide mixture evenly into four portions.

Shape each portion into a ball.

Place each ball into an 8-oz. microwave-safe coffee mug

Line the bottom of the microwave with a sheet of waxed paper in case juices from the meat loaves bubble out.

Place mugs in a circle on top of the waxed paper.

Cover mugs with another big sheet of waxed paper.

Microwave for 11-minutes on medium-high.

Check for doneness by cutting into meatloaves with a knife and fork. If any are still pink inside, microwave them for 30-seconds more and check again for doneness.

Carefully remove each mug from the microwave using oven mitts.

Divide ketchup evenly on top of the meat loaves; cover with waxed paper and let stand 2-minutes.
