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!"
