You can easily make a single serving of meatloaf with this fast and simple recipe.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 slice white bread, torn into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ pound ground beef
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • ⅓ teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place the torn bread into a small bowl, and pour in the milk and Worcestershire sauce; set aside for a few minutes for the bread to absorb the liquid. Add the ground beef, green onion, seasoned salt, and pepper to the bread; mix well and place into a 10 ounce, microwave-safe mug.
  2. 2 Cook in the microwave at 70 percent power until the meatloaf is firm and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 1/2 minutes depending on the microwave. Remove the meatloaf from the microwave, and allow to stand 2 minutes before serving.

  4. Really good but I made a lot of changes to make it healthier such as using multigrain instead of white bread and making it in a muffin tin instead of a mug. I also used less milk and one more small egg. In the future though I would probably add more bread or use leaner - Read more ...
  5. The texture to this loaf is not the same as when it is in the oven while it had good flavor I didn't care for the texture. I probably will not make it again.
