Don't remember where I got this recipe. I like the flavor that the sage gives this dish. Often requested by my family.

Now this is the way meatloaf was made long ago,and all the new fancy stuff will not make it better.I did use 11/2 tea.salt, 1/2 tea.pepper and 1 tea.sage..will increase sage next time to 11/2tea...let the loaf brown, than poured the sauce over for 75min. 1/2 the sauce was good for me.Thank You, Margo59..this will now be my only meat loaf.
