Yummy Meatloaf!

So I have started posting things on Instagram that Wifessionals and Wifestyles prompt us on each week.  Last week's prompt was something nice for your husband.  I decided that I would make mine meatloaf.  He loves meatloaf and in the whole 4.5 years that we have been together I have never made it for him.  That all changed when I called my mom and got her recipe.  It is so easy and takes no time at all.  He was super excited and loved it!

Mommy's Easy Peasy Meatloaf
1 pound of lean beef
1 egg
4 saltine crackers (crumbled)
1 Tbls minced onion
1 tsp season salt
1-2 Tbls ketchup

Take beef and break up into microwavable safe loaf pan
Mix in egg, crackers, onion, salt and ketchup with beef
Make into loaf shape in pan
Take ketchup and top meatloaf if desired

Place loaf pan in microwave for 7 1/2 minutes at 50% power
Continue cooking for another 7 minutes but at 100% power
If you like it a little crunchier, continue cooking at 1 minute increments until meatloaf is cooked to your liking

I hope you enjoy this as much as my hubby and mommy do.  Her recipe is delicious and super easy!
