|1½ pounds||Lean ground beef|
|1 cup||Cracker crumbs (approx 22) or bread crumbs; dry|
|¼ cup||Chopped onion; (1 small)|
|1 tablespoon||Worcestershire sauce|
|½ teaspoon||Dry mustard|
|¼ teaspoon||Ground sage|
|1||Clove crushed garlic; optional|
|8 ounces||Finely chopped mushrooms; optional|
Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Don't overhandle the meat, as that will toughen it. Spread in ungreased loaf pan, 9x5x3 inches. Spread with ketchup (or BBQ Sauce, if desired). Leave a section of it plain, as Dad doesn't care for the ketchup topping. Cook uncovered in 350 degree oven until done, about 1½ hours.
Serving Ideas : Mashed Potatoes, Corn or Green Beans, Biscuits.
