Wow, these were awesome!! I used 85/15 ground turkey & 1/2 ts of onion powder instead of chopped onions & omitted the sage. My DH, DD, Mom & myself loved it. I was kind of worried about how runny they seemed but they turned out excellent. The sauce is wonderful, I never thought to use brown sugar with the ketchup. I had also made these up a few hours ahead of time & stored in the fridge until I was ready to preheat the oven. Thanks for a keeper!!

These are the best little meatloaves!! I love the fact that they are small as we are trying to do a little more "portion control" in our house. The flavor is great, very easy to make. I made them up and froze 4 for another time and when I defrosted those and cooked them, they were just as good as the first time. Putting this on regular rotation!! Thanks DDW!!

Great recipe. I knew on Sunday that I was going to have a very busy week, so I went ahead and made these up, placed them in the casserole dish, wrapped with foil and froze them. I took them out of the freezer on Wed. and put them in the fridge to thaw. Thursday afternoon I took them out of the fridge for about an hour, mixed up the sauce, spooned it over the loaves and baked. They were wonderful. Be sure to recommend this anytime you see someone wanting a recipe that freezes. I did us rubbed savory flakes instead of sage, we just don't care for sage too much. That was the only change I made.

These were very good! Even my son who doesn't like meatloaf had 2 servings. I used mild cheddar and ground sage because that is what I had on hand. Easy to put together and DDW is right about it thickening up as you mix it. Thanks for the recipe. I'm sure this is what I will be using from now on.

These are amazing. My family loves it every time I make it. I double the ground beef and use exact recipe for rest of the ingredients. The one time I followed the recipe exactly I had flat loaves. But doubling the meat made them perfect. Maybe my altitude I dont know.

We really enjoyed this meatloaf. I liked the sage as it is so good for us and it's a spice that isn't often used in recipes.The texture of the meatloaf was perfect and the taste was great. The only thing I may add next time is a little chopped green bell pepper. Thanks so much for posting this gem. It will be one of my go to recipes.

This was delicious and made a great late night dinner for us last night. I didn't take a picture because we made just regular sized meatloaves. For us there was too much sugar in the topping. I cut the sugar in half. Made for Name that Ingredient.

Such a good recipe. The meatloaves turned out so moist and delicious, I think I may turn to this more then a regular meatloaf. Thank you for sharing with us.
