Meatloaf in a Mug

  • 1 pound extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (5-1/2 ounce) can V8 vegetable juice
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

  1. Stir together first 8 ingredients in a big bowl. Divide mixture evenly into 4 portions. Shape each portion into a ball. Place each ball into an 8-ounce microwave-safe coffee mug.
  2. Line the bottom of the microwave with a big sheet of wax paper in case juices fro the meatloaves bubble out. Place mugs in a circle on top of wax paper. Cover mugs with another big sheet of wax paper. Microwave at Medium-high (70% power) 11 minutes. Cut into meatloaves with a knife and fork. If any are still pink inside, microwave them 30 seconds more and recheck for doneness. Carefully remove each mug from the microwave using oven mitts.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon ketchup over each meatloaf; cover with wax paper, and let stand 2 minutes. 
Makes 4 servings.
