7 Yummy Microwave Recipes ...


I used to think that everything had to be cooked in an oven to be tasty, but then I discovered the beauty behind having a microwave.

I’ve made some fantastic dishes and desserts with the help of my microwave oven.

The amount of time I save is amazing too!2

Here are 7 yummy microwave recipes for you to try.

7. Meatloaf

I’ve always enjoyed the taste of meatloaf, but never made it much because it took so long to cook in the oven.

Here is a microwave version that is just as tasty.

Mix together an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce, a teaspoon of wet mustard, and a quarter cup of brown sugar.

Keep stirring these ingredients until the sugar has completely dissolved.

In another bowl, mix 2 eggs, a cup of minced onion, a quarter cup of minced green pepper, a half teaspoon of garlic powder, a quarter teaspoon of black pepper, a teaspoon of salt, and a half cup of cracker crumbs.

Once these ingredients have been stirred together a bit, add in 2 pounds of ground beef or ground turkey.

Stir well and then add in half of the tomato mixture from the other bowl, saving the rest to put on top of the meat loaf.

Put the meatloaf into a 2 quart pan that is microwave-safe and spread the rest of the sauce over the top.

Cook on high for 10 to 15 minutes or until the center is no longer pink.

Use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temp of the loaf is at least 165 degrees.

Drain off any excess grease and allow to set for 15 minutes before serving.2

6. Chocolate Goo

A friend of mine got me hooked on this tasty treat that is good any time of day.

Melt about 3 tablespoons of butter in the microwave and add 2 heaping spoonfuls of powdered baking cocoa.

I use a regular dinner spoon instead of a tiny measuring spoon when making this recipe.

Stir the cocoa into the melted butter and add an eighth to a quarter cup of sugar;3

your choice.

Mix in a spoonful of cottage cheese, a dash of vanilla or almond extract, and 2 eggs.

Whisk well and put in the microwave for 2 and a half minutes.

After 30 seconds, remove the bowl and whisk the ingredients.2

Repeat this step 3 to 4 more times or until the ingredients begin to stiffen.

The dessert should have only a small amount of wobbly goo in the middle by the time the last 30 seconds rolls around.

I don’t stir it during the last 30 minutes.

If you want your dessert gooier, stop the microwave before the last 30 seconds are up.
