    For my family of one (me), I cut this recipe in half and used ketchup to avoid opening a can of tomato sauce and only using half of it. This was a minor adjustment and so I believe that my 5 star rating was deserved for the recipe as written. The meatloaf was very good, saved a lot of cooking time and I will definitely add this to my regular meal selections. I'm looking forward to a meatloaf sandwich with the leftovers. :-)  -  01 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'm sure this is tasty. My comment is for the person about uneven cooking. When baking meatloaf in the microwave, I form it into a ring loaf with a hole in the center. 1 -1/2 to 2 pounds of ground beef cook evenly in about twelve minutes.  -  15 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    So I think I was like everyone else, because I was skeptical that this was going to turn out. However, even my picky husband thought that this was amazing meatloaf! I made it almost the same, except I used ground venison instead of beef. Couldn't tell the difference. The one thing that was missing was a little crust, because normally when I make it in the oven, I do a freeform loaf to get the "brown" on the outside. However, the convenience factor MORE than made up for it! Great recipe!  -  12 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
