This is absolutely the best meatloaf I have ever tasted. A touch of sage in the meat along with the special ketchup topping make this meatloaf suitable for serving to company. I always serve it with mashed potatoes and cream corn--the way my parents did when I was growing up.

This tasted really, really good. We used ground turkey instead of beef... but I did have one problem. My meatloaf was not firm. It was almost soupy. Next time I make this, I will really reduce the liquid!! Otherwise, though, it is fantastic. My DH really loved the glaze.
