A very nice meatloaf! The loaf came out very tender, and the addition of the mushrooms and all of those herbs just made the flavor sing. I've never used cognac or port in meatloaf, they added a classy note that I very much liked. I used Tawney port, as I thought ruby would just be too sweet. Thanks for posting a great recipe!

Made for ZWT6 as a last minute choice when I opted to have a meatloaf for dinner tonite. I did not have fresh mushrooms, but it was otherwise made as written & was a lot of fun to make! I was dancin around my kitchen singin *parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme* like I was backup for S&G. I made 2 mini-loaves so I could freeze 1 for another dy. The aroma as it cooked was heavenly & the flavor terrific. Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. :-) *Edited to Add* ~ This meatloaf cooks to a lovely & esp flavorful crispy crunch on the surfaces. *Yum* !

I made this last night last night and it was delicious!! I also made Cheese and Potato Pancakes by Sydney Mike. It was such a wonderful easy recipe to do, it turns out moist and light, I served it with gravy as my men love their gravy. It was a perfect meal and combo. My teenage son had just played his first football match with his team and they won 8-2, so a perfect meal for a champ. He loved both of the recipes and had seconds. A definite winner!!!

I omitted the sage and nutmeg for personal preference, otherwise made as directed. This is a good meatloaf recipe that has lots of flavor. The liquor really adds something different to plain old meatloaf. Thanks for posting.

Scaled back for 3 servings using 600g (1 1/3lb) of ground beef as that was what was in my package (had enough for 4, DM demanded the 4th for lunch but DS beat her to it and made himself a sandwich). This fitted into my loaf tin just right. Baked for 45 minutes at 170 C in a fan forced oven. I used a pinch of ground sage but all other herbs were fresh and omitted the port wine as I had none. Served with a peppered mushroom gravy and mashed potatoe and steamed vegetables. Thank you Sydney Mike. Made for Who Am I.

We were surprised by how much we liked this recipe. The flavors in the herbs and liqur were perfect for this recipe. Would not change a thing.

Very good meatloaf, the only change I made was to use ground sage as I had no fresh on hand. Sould I make this again I probably wouldn't use the whole 5 oz of mushrooms due to husband's dislike of them. Leftovers will taste great as sandwiches. Made for ZWT4
