Recently I decided to try cooking meatloaf in the wonder oven. I've realized I can really cook just about anything I want if I think about it long enough! I mixed up my usual meatloaf recipe and put the mixture in a greased stainless-steel pot I purchased just for the wonder oven. This "pot" is actually a stainless steel utensil holder. If you don't have one, you could also use a can. In fact, you could use smaller individual cans and make individual meatloaves. Get creative with what you have.
Next, I placed that pot of meatloaf inside my stock pot. I filled a couple of pint jars with water and placed them in the stock pot, too, to help keep the meatloaf pot from flipping over during cooking.
Almost as an afterthought, I decided to cut up potatoes and put them inside those pint jars. I could have used quart jars, but two pint jars worked just fine.
After 15 minutes, I placed the pot in my wonder oven and made sure that the beads surrounded the pot. It's important for the beads to touch as much of the pot as possible to help retain the heat. I placed the "lid" of the wonder oven on top and left it for several hours.
When we were ready to eat, I took the pot out of the wonder oven. It was still too hot to touch without a hot pad. I turned the meatloaf pot on it's side and it slid right out onto the plate. It was fully cooked, but I missed the catsup and green pepper on the top. I cut the meatloaf in half, lengthwise, so it looked like two mounds. Then I brushed catsup on the top of each half, and placed some green pepper on top before sticking it under the broiler for just a few minutes to finish off the catsup.
The potatoes were cooked, so I put them in a bowl while I made gravy out of the juice from the meatloaf pan and the potato water.
