Ingredients

  • 1 pound extra-lean (92% lean) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (5 1/2-ounce) can vegetable juice (we used V-8)
  • 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

Preparation

  1. 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. 2. Line the bottom of the microwave with a big sheet of wax paper in case juices from 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. 3. Spread 1 tablespoon ketchup over each meatloaf; cover with wax paper, and let stand 2 minutes.
