Doubled the fresh sage and upped the salt and pepper just slightly. Tender and soft well-seasoned meatloaf. May try it with oatmeal instead of the bread. Chili sauce on top.

I am so happy to find this recipe. I just moved and threw out my ancient Betty Crocker cookbook with the stained and tattered pages. I have been making this meatloaf for decades. The original recipe offered alternatives, one of which was to use oatmeal instead of bread. I always do that and also leave out the onion. Sandwiches the next day are great too.

A true classic. This is one you'll crave when you don't want anything fancy--just a delicious and comforting meatloaf reminiscent of days gone by. I mix up a sauce with ketchup, brown sugar and just a hint of mustard to top it. Perfect with mashed potatoes and a side of peas or corn. (Mixed in with the potatoes, of course!) I'm really surprised this doesn't have a gazillion reviews. Well, maybe not quite THAT many... LOL.
