Thoroughly combine all the ingredients except the catsup. Pack lightly into a nine-inch glass dish, making a well in center. Place an empty glass, right side down, in the center of the dish. Microwave on HIGH for six minutes, rotating one-quarter turn halfway through cooking. Drizzle the catsup over the top. Microwave on HIGH for five minutes longer, rotating one-quarter turn halfway through cooking.
Let the loaf Rest for five minutes. Remove glass; baste off drippings.
If time is not a factor, you can cook it with the following times: MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) for nine to ten minutes in step 1. MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) for seven to nine minutes in step 2.
