Freezer Meals Recipe: Meatloaf

I was asked for some of our recipes for our freezer meals outreach, so here is one we made this last cook night. It is a favorite and we make this at least every two months because it gets grabbed out of the freezer pretty quickly.

Usually we say each pan is about 3 servings. If we are sending the meal to a larger family, we send two pans. We also keep some steam-in-bag vegetables and some frozen rolls in the freezer. So I usually send some of those with the meatloaf to make a complete meal. And, sometimes we even have frozen cookie dough which I will also send, especially if the recipients of the meal have kids.

Freezer Meatloaf Recipe


  • 6 small disposable pans with lids (something like these)
  • 6 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 2 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoon dried thyme or other seasoning
  • about 2 cup ketchup


  1. Prepare the pans with cooking spray.
  2. Gently mix ingredients except ketchup in a large bowl. Just be careful not to over-mix, or the meat will be tough.
  3. Shape beef mixture into 6 loaves and place in the prepared pans. Leave a little space around the sides of the pan.
  4. Spread a thin layer of ketchup over the top of each meatloaf.
  5. Write directions (below) on the lids. Place lids on pans and seal.
  6. Freeze immediately

Directions (Written on lids)

  • Thaw in refrigerator overnight.
  • Remove cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until cooked through. (Increase the baking time if the meat is still partially frozen)
  • Slice and serve.
