Best Meatloaf Ever

Meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods. Brings back memories of my mom, living on the farm, and when I moved back home in 2001, she made it often.
Her favorite thing to eat besides chocolate chip cookies and ice cream was meatloaf, baked potato and green beans. I made meatloaf today on Friday night from a recipe that I copied out of a Taste of Home magazine. I just use all organic ingredients.  I was sold on the flavor as I think the sauce and sage compliments the meatloaf. I changed my mom’s traditional recipe and incorporated some things such as broccoli and 1 oz of sharp cheddar cheese for the baked potato toppings. I do eat many healthy foods, but today is a different kind of day. It was the kind of day that calls for comfort food. I hope you enjoy the meatloaf as much as I did.
