“The original recipe came with my first microwave and was made with ground beef. I made it originally because my Mom was working and I was the oldest and still at home. My Dad loved it and I liked it too when I hadn't really liked meatloaf before. When I got married I made it for my husband and he loved it as well. Then we started eating healthier, so I altered it to ground turkey instead. I've tried to increase this recipe, but for the microwave it doesn't really work. Some people like it made in a convection oven. Keep in mind you have to let the meatloaf stand or it won't be fully cooked.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix crushed saltines, egg. In a separate bowl mix mustard, 1 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar and 1/2 can tomato sauce. Add 1/2 (about 10 small spoons full) of the tomato mixture to the saltine mixture and mix well. Add the ground turkey and mix well. Put in a microwave safe bowl with a glass in the center. Top with 1 teaspoon chopped onion, mix all remaining tomato sauce together with the leftover 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar. Spoon a little tomato sauce mixture over top of the meatloaf, just until covered. Cover with waxed paper. Cook about 5 minutes 45 seconds. Let stand for 10 minutes. Times will vary depending on microwave.
