Private cooking lesson

Can you tell by looking at Steve how much he enjoyed his birthday cooking lesson?

"I never thought taking a cooking class would be as fun and enjoyable as this one. The experience was fantastic. Ellie was so great...We had great conversation, the recipes were so simple and easy to make, but the end result was some of the most incredible food. I highly recommend anyone who likes to eat to take a class with her!"

Microwave Meat Loaf

©1999 "So Easy, So Delicious"

1 lb ground beef
1 egg
1/3 C bread crumbs
1/4 C ketchup
2 T water
Garlic powder, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste

2 T ketchup
1 T water
1 small onion, sliced

Whisk together ketchup and water. Pour over meat loaf. Place onion slices on top. Cover with wax paper and microwave on high for 13 to 14 minutes, or until desired doneness is reached. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Hint: You can slice leftovers and use them for sandwiches, or freeze in individual portions for future meals. If you prefer, you can bake the meat loaf in a conventional oven at 350° for 1 hour. Ground turkey or chicken may be substituted for the beef; however more seasoning will be required for these.
