How to replace msg in a meatloaf recipe with salt and sugar?

curiousaboutcafos | May 3, 2013 05:26 PM

Good evening I am looking to replace 1 tsp. of msg in a typical 9x5 2 lb. (ground beef) meatloaf recipe, http://allrecipes.com/recipe/anns-sis...
I am specifically looking to avoid the msg and replace it with whatever should go in its place.
 
I am confused because I have read you can use salt instead, but I also read you should mix salt and sugar 50/50 . .  

Thank you for your help and I am aware of what msg is and does chemically meaning I won't be able to get a perfect substitute . . Thanks :D
