If you don’t, “Your loss”, he says!   Ha-ha!  Enjoy!”

Servings: 8    Cook Time:  19 minutes


2 pounds ground beef

1 cup mild salsa

½ cup bread crumbs

2 eggs

2 teaspoons yellow mustard

1 ½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black ground pepper

1/3 cup vegetable juice, (V-8)

1 onion, sliced


  1. Place a small ceramic or glass custard cup upside down in the middle of a ten-inch microwave safe quiche dish or similar casserole dish.
  2. Spread the sliced onions on the bottom of the pan around the upside down custard cup.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, salsa, bread crumbs, eggs, yellow mustard, salt, ground black pepper, and vegetable juice until it is well-blended.
  4. Place the meatloaf mixture over the sliced onions around the cup, pushing the mixture in with a spoon to fit tightly around the dish.
  5. Microwave the meatloaf uncovered, on high power for 19 minutes.
  6. Remove from microwave and cut into slices to serve. 
  7. Do not remove the custard cup until you are finished slicing and serving the meatloaf so the oil stays contained inside the custard cup and does not seep into your meatloaf.
