I know what you’re thinking. Meatloaf in a mug? Can’t be all that tasty. But wait - there’s more! It’s even microwavable! And it is, in fact, delicious, as well as quick, easy, and cheap! I can’t think of a better combination of words to describe a recipe, especially one that I’m going to start taking for lunches in a ziploc bag. The only downside? One serving never quite feels like it’s enough.
Difficulty: Incredibly easy! (So easy that I had trouble knowing what to tkae pictures of!)
1 slice white bread
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon brewed tea of choice, strong
1/4 lb ground beef
1 green onion, sliced (optional)
1 teaspoon tea leaves, ground
salt and pepper to taste
Tear the bread up into pieces - and when I say pieces, my personal experience with this recipe tells me that I really mean itty bitty tiny crumbs, or as close to that as you can get. If I had an immersion blender, I might fool around with that to get it as torn up as possible. (I was making a double recipe in the following pictures, if yours looks a lot smaller.)
Add the milk and the tea, and mix together until the liquids have been absorbed by the bread. Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix together well - it takes a while to properly mix together the beef with the bread, so work it with your hands until it’s mostly-uniform and looks almost like it’s just well-marbled.
Plop it in a mug, and throw it in the microwave at 70% power for 5 minutes, or until the centre is no longer pink.
