Reviews for Sage Meat Loaf
"Only one of four diners didn't like it. He didn't like the sage in meatloaf. It was a good texture and seasoning, and the sauce was good."
"While this is a pretty good meat loaf, I'm giving my 5 stars to the sauce. There are only two of us, but I usually triple or quadruple the sauce recipe to use as a spread on meat loaf sandwiches."
"It came out of the pan very easily. It tasted very good even though ran out of sage so i used basil instead....."
"I found this recipe, just ok. A better recipe is "Slow cooked Meat Loaf" from QuickCooking,Mar of 98. I exchanged the 2 slices of bread in that recipe for soda crackers, 1 cup. Also you cook carrots and potatoes along with it for one pot dinner!"
"It was okay but not awesome"
"This made a nice flavorful moist meatloaf. I did find it stuck to the pan though so next time I will grease the pan. We did not add the topping because we don't like the sweet ketchup type toppings...we just left our plain, although next time I just might have to try the gravy suggestion another reviewer mentioned. Thanks TOH, for another great homestyle recipe!"
"Consider this my best recipe!"
"awesome recipe! we loved it! only thing I added was garlic!"
"Whenever I make meatloaf I use celery salt in place of the regular salt. This gave this recipe the seasoning I felt it needed. Will certainly make it again!"
"VERY GOOD meat loaf. Everyone loved it!!"
"This is my go to recipe for meatloaf every time! My husband doesn't like a ketchup based sauce, so I substitute canned gravy & it's delicious."
"VERY GOOD Recipe....Everyone begs for this recipe. I dont add the sage and I add a tiny little bit of tobascco sauce. It doesn't make it spicy, the heat cooks the spicy out but gives it a little extra flavor. I add maybe 10 drops. the sauce is a little sweet but we all enjoyed it anyways."
"VERY GOOD!!! I've made it so many times. I don't add the sage anymore. My kids and husband like it better without the sage. Topping is great!"
"My husband and I really liked this meat loaf, except we found the topping too sweet! I had already cut the brown sugar in half, but it was still too sweet. For the meat I used half ground bison and half beef and also added one-third to half a cup of grated carrots. I will make it again with less sugar."
"I made this for my mom's birthday meal. We all LOVED it. Even my picky 4-year-old ate two servings. I will absolutely make this again."
"My boyfriend and I thought this was fantastic. The sauce over it sets off the spices in the meat loaf so well. Yum."
"My husband and I really enjoyed this meatloaf and will definitely make it again, although probably with ground turkey."
"This was okay, not horrible, but I won't make it again. It just didn't have a lot of flavor. I did like the sauce for on top of the meatloaf."
