- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/3 cup minced onion
- Garlic, minced, to taste, optional
- 3 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
- 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 dash white pepper
- 1 large egg
- 1 pound ground chuck
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
Gather the ingredients.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine oil, onion, and garlic; cook 3 to 4 minutes on high until soft.
Combine with oats, 1/2 the tomato sauce, thyme, marjoram, garlic salt, pepper, and egg in a large bowl. Mix in meat with your hands. Gently shape into an 8×4 inch loaf.
Place into a 9×5 inch glass loaf pan, making sure the meat mixture doesn’t touch the sides of the pan. Cover pan with microwave-safe waxed paper. Microwave at high power for 5 minutes, then carefully siphon off the juices using a turkey baster.
Combine brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard with remaining tomato sauce. Spoon this mixture over the meatloaf, making sure to evenly coat top and sides.
Return pan to the microwave, rotating one-half turn. Cover pan with microwave-safe waxed paper and cook at 50% for 15 to 20 minutes or until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted in the center of the loaf registers 160 F.
Cover with foil and let stand 5 minutes on a solid surface before serving. (The temperature of the meatloaf will rise about 10 degrees during standing time.)
Serve and enjoy!
