My Favorite Everyday Meatloaf!

Everyday Meatloaf (from Better Homes & Gardens Ground Meat Cookbook c. 1969)
This is my favorite meatloaf recipe - I've been making it since 1969! It has it's own topping, or you can bake it for 1 1/2 hours and then top it with my Spiced Tomato-Pineapple Jam,  Leftovers of this meatloaf makes great sandwiches!
     2 beaten eggs
     3/4 c. milk
     2/3 c. fine dry bread crumbs
     2 tbsp. grated onion
     1 tsp. salt
     1/2 tsp. ground sage
     Dash pepper
     1 1/2 pounds ground beef
Combine everything except the beef. Add beef and mix well. Pat mixture into a loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
     1/4 c. catsup
     2 tbsp. brown sugar
     1 tsp. dry mustard
     1/4 tsp. ground mustard
Spread over meatloaf and bake 15 minutes longer.
