A slightly smaller meatloaf.

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 seasoned, dry bread crumbs or Nature’s Burger mix
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tablespoons milk or water
  • 1 teaspoon vegetarian Worchestershire sauce (no anchovies, please)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 350° (F). In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well. Place in greased 8×4-inch loaf pan; form into a loaf. Bake 40 to 60 minutes or until no longer pink in the center. Let stand a few minutes to set; invert onto serving platter.

To Microwave: Combine all ingredients as above. Shape into a loaf (about 8×4-inches) in a 12×8-inch microwavable dish. Cover with wax paper and cook at medium 20 to 24 minutes. Drain liquid occasionally and, if necessary, shield ends of loaf with aluminum foil halfway through cooking. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes before serving.

Makes 4 to 6 servings
