Ingredients
  1. 1 pound of ground turkey or lean ground meat
  2. 1/2 cup oatmeal
  3. 1/4 cup ketchup
  4. 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon dry onion soup mix
  5. Cooking spray
Instructions
  1. In a medium-size bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Divide into four equal portions.
  2. Use cooking spray to cover inside of four microwave-safe coffee mugs. Divide into four portions (about 1/2 cup each). Place each portion in a mug and poke a hole in the middle down to the bottom of the mug.
  3. Place each mug in microwave and cook on high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until instant-read thermometer reads 165° F.
  4. Remove mugs with hot pads. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes so fluids are absorbed back into the meatloaf. Top each meatloaf with ketchup, if desired.
Make Once, Eat Four Times
  1. After mixing the recipe, individual portions can be stored in an airtight freezer bag and taken out as desired.
  2. Completely thaw in the refrigerator before cooking so individual portions can be formed in the mug and cooking time remains the same.
