Ham Loaf:

Prepare as above, except use soft bread crumbs. Substitute 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard for the sage, basil, or oregano and omit the salt. Substitute 12 ounces lean ground beef or pork and 12 ounces ground cooked ham for the 1-1/2 pounds ground beef, lamb, or pork. Bake and let stand as above.

I've been making this recipe for over 30 years. It used to be in the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book but somewhere along the line, they removed it!

It is the one meat load recipe that makes people say, "Wow! This is MEAT LOAF???" Even people who swear that they hate meat loaf love this recipe (I've battle tested it on some hard-core nay sayers).

One thing - the nutrition information has to be wrong. It says 225 kcal per serving. There's no way this stuff has 225,000 calories in a serving! I found other on-line versions of this recipe that quote the calories as 610 per serving which is much more believable - about the same as a big ol' hamburger. I use 93/7 ground beef for mine as it cuts the fat content way down

It came out delicious! I made it for the whole family, I had some leftover quinoa from yesterdays lunch and added it. But it was really good! We enjoyed it..I served it with a salad and that was it. Amazing!

This is the favorite meat loaf of all my guests. Don't stop here though. All BUG recipes are yummy. Cheesecake, stuffed peppers, lasagne, stuffed pork chops, Apple pie are a few of my go tos.

I have been making this meatloaf since I was 10 years old, I am now 75! The recipe has been passed on many many times and still gets raves to this day. Often I mix the meat with pork and beef and to the sauce add 1/4 t nutmeg. Absolutely delicious!

I found this recipe years ago (2010, to be exact), when I bought BHG's "Our Best Recipes" cookbook. Have made it many times. I was prompted to write this review today after making this meatloaf last night for my husband and me. My husband just raved about it and commented that it is my "best meatloaf recipe, by far." I have made it my own by using a combination of 93% lean ground beef and ground pork (1lb. beef, 1/2lb. pork), 2 cups of day-old French bread crumbs (more like cubes, really), adding 1/2 cup shredded carrot along with the onion and parsley, and using crushed, dried oregano - no sage or basil. It is simply amazing. Company worthy! Today we made meatloaf sandwiches with the leftovers. We used bread from the same French loaf, buttered and pan toasted each slice; put a thin slice of yellow onion on each sandwich along with mayo and crisp iceberg lettuce. Just delicious. You have to try this meatloaf recipe!

First time making meatloaf ever. This recipe turned out great. I made a few adjustments according to my taste preferences. Used 1/2 # Italian Sausage, Italian seasoning, 1 small onion, and Worcestershire Sauce in both the meat mixture and the topping sauce. This meatloaf was reported as being the best thing I've ever made.

I also have made this recipe for more than 20 years! We love it! I think the sage is what sets it off, gives it such a depth of flavor. One thing I alternate is oats for dry bread crumbs. I always have oats on hand I Iike the added nutrients in the oats.
