This is our favorite meat loaf recipe. I got the basic recipe from the Fanny Farmer Cooking School cookbook and added the glaze myself. Leftovers make great sandwiches!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place ground meats and bread crumbs in a large bowl.
  2. Process together the onion, egg, milk, salt, pepper, mustard, worchestershire sauce and sage in a food processor until smooth.
  3. (Sometimes I add a green pepper or some celery at this stage for a variation).
  4. Pour over meat and crumbs and mix together well using your hands.
  5. Pack lightly into a 9 X 5 X 3 inch loaf dish.
  6. Bake for 1 hour at 350*F.
  7. Stir together glaze ingredients.
  8. Spread over loaf and bake for 1/2 hour longer.

Yummy! I made this using ground turkey (it was on sale), and put in the bell pepper as suggested, and it made a terrific low-fat dinner. I only used 1/4 cup brown sugar to cut down on carbs and the glaze was plenty sweet. The sage added a delightful taste to the meatloaf. I served with mashed potatoes and a green salad. I only had enough left over to bring to work today for lunch (and I had to hide it in the refrigerator last night or my husband would have eaten it). Thanks for another good recipe, Marie!
