So if you can’t tell by my picture, I’m spilling a secret. These are actually mint leaves in the photo, not sage leaves. I completely forgot to save one for photo purposes after the meatloaf was done and used all of what I had in the recipe. Oh well, nobody’s perfect right!

These little meatloaves were still delicious and I loved the flavors of the sage and Feta cheese combined together. I also wanted to use a mini square loaf pan so that I could get individual portions, but feel free to make it full size. I have to say, my little one doesn’t generally like ground chicken or turkey, but DEVOURED these. So I don’t know if she liked the taste or that they were cute and little for her to eat! In any event, it was another healthy meal the whole family enjoyed.

Here are some storage tips I found for fresh sage since it’s a spice that I myself only started using a few years ago.

  1. Fresh sage leaves should be aromatic and should have no soft spots or dry edges.
  2. To store, wrap in paper towels and store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator and use within 4 to 5 days.
  3. According to About.com, fresh leaves may also be covered in olive oil and stored in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
  4. Use the flavored oil for sautéing or in salad dressings.
  5. To freeze fresh sage leaves, wash and pat dry, remove leaves from the stems, and pack loosely in freezer bags. Freeze up to 1 year. Be aware that freezing will intensify the flavor of the herb and adjust accordingly.
  6. Dried sage is preferred by most cooks and comes in whole leaf, rubbed, and ground form. Rubbed sage has a light, velvety texture, whereas ground sage is more of a free-flowing powder. As with all dried herbs, store closed containers in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. Use within 6 months for best flavor.

      I’ve neer used dried sage but most spices are usually more potent. So I would start out with 1 teaspoon.

    […] thing, you can make them into hamburger patties or individual serving loaves like I did with the Feta & Sage Chicken Mini Meatloaf as well. This was deliciously moist and flavorful, but then again, how could it not […]

    I’ve made this dish several times and it never disappoints. Sometimes I will use turkey instead of chicken. It’s also super quick. So glad I found this site.
