Freezeasy Meal Prep Directions

  1. Peel and grate 1 small white onion.

To each gallon-size plastic freezer baggie, add the following ingredients:

  • Meatloaf into each loaf pan
  • 1/2 cup salsa, spread thinly over top of meatloaf

Wrap each loaf in foil, if desired. Remove as much air as you can and seal. Freeze up to 6 months in your fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

Put baggie in the freezer and freeze up to 6 months in fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. If you wrapped the meatloaf in foil, remove the foil and place the meatloaf back into the same loaf pan that you used to freeze it. Thaw completely in the fridge before baking as directed.

Reheating Instructions

If preferred, line 2 9x5-inch loaf pans with large piece of foil that can wrap around the meatloaf. Then once frozen, you can remove the loaf pan from the freezer and place the frozen meatloaf into a plastic baggie to bake at a future time in the same loaf pan.
