Mom's and T's Favorite Meat Loaf

T and Mom love this meat loaf. Posting it now so I'll have it easily available while we're visiting her. Originally from Taste of Home magazine, June/July 1997

Meat Loaf:
½ cup chopped onion
2 eggs
¾ cup milk
2/3 cup finely crushed saltines
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon rubbed sage
dash pepper
1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
1 cup ketchup
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, saltines, onion, salt, sage and pepper. Add beef and mix well. Shape into an 8 ½ inch by 4 ½ inch loaf in an ungreased shallow baking pan. Combine remaining ingredients; spread ¾ cup over meat loaf. Bake at 350 for 60-65 minutes or until no pink remains; drain. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining sauce. Yield: 6-8 servings

Notes: we make a double batch (2 loaves) since we like this so much. Eat one now, throw the other in the freezer. A double batch uses one sleeve of saltines. We just use a regular loaf pans. I make the regular amount of the sauce and then split it between the 2.
