- 1-1 1/2 lb. ground beef (lean)
- 1-2 c. soft bread crumbs (Make your own with old bread and a cheese grater)
- 6-8 oz. tomato sauce
- 1 egg, beaten
- 4 tablespoon minced onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon sage
Beat egg in large bowl, add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Pack into 4×8 or 5×9 loaf pan. (Optional, shape into a loaf on top of your broiler pan. Lightly cover with tinfoil to stop splatter in the oven and bake as normal. This drains all the fat off and into the bottom of the broil pan)
Bake at 350°F for 60-70 minutes.
If desired, spread with ketchup during last 10-15 minutes of baking.
