Cheese-Topped Meat Loaves

Simple and Delicious
March/April 2006 issue
Page: 37

This is one of my favorite entrees for two. I found this tender meat
loaf recipe in a supermarket' s cookbook almost 20 years ago and have
enjoyed it ever since. Sometimes I substitute ground turkey or chicken
for the ground beef or make extra loaves to freeze for later meals.

METHOD: Microwave
TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

1 egg
2 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup picante sauce, divided
1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a small bowl, combine the egg, 2 tablespoons picante sauce, oats,
onion, chili powder and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
Shape into two 4-in. x 2-in. loaves.
Place in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 5-6
minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.
Place the remaining picante sauce in a small microwave-safe bowl;
cover and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Pour over meat loaves.
