Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, crackers, onion, salt, sage and pepper. Add beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into an 8x4-in. loaf in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.

In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients, stirring to dissolve sugar; remove 1/2 cup for sauce. Spread remaining mixture over meat loaf.

Bake 60-65 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°F. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved sauce.

Yield: 6 servings.
