¼ cup minced onion
1½ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon each pepper, dry mustard, sage, celery salt and garlic salt

Place the mixture into a glass microwaveable dish (9 x 5 or round with custard cup in middle). Cover with waxed paper. Microwave on 70% power for 25 to 30 minutes or until the meat loaf has an internal temperature of 140º.
Heat oven to 350º. For better browning, shape into a loaf on a shallow baking pan. Bake 1½ hours or until done (internal temperature of 140º).
Serve hot or cold.
