"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

2/3 c. dry bread crumbs (I use broken up pieces of loaf bread)
1 c. milk

1 1/2 lb ground meat
2 eggs, beaten
chopped onion (the amount depends on your preference)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. sage (I use rubbed sage)

2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. dry mustard


Soak bread crumbs in milk. Add the remaining meat loaf ingredients and mix well.

Place in 2 loaf pans.

TOPPING: Mix well brown sugar, ketchup, nutmeg and dry mustard. Spread topping over meat loaf.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. If there is grease in the pans, you may want to remove the meat loaf and place it on a plate or platter.

I have made this recipe many times. It is one of our favorite dishes. Any leftover makes delectable sandwiches.
