Does meatloaf freeze well?

Hubby is deployed and I'm running out of ideas for small meals. I saw a good recipe for individual meatloafs and I was thinking about making them and freezing the extras. Does meatloaf taste good when you thaw it?

  • You don't have to bake it before you freeze it. Get the meat, mix everything into it and make your individual amts. Then just wrap and freeze. Take out as needed , thaw and bake.

    I do this all the time! When ever I make meatloaf I usually make a double batch. I bake one and freeze the other for another day. It's nice because I don't have to mess with mixing it.

  • That's an amazing idea. You freeze it with the egg in it and everything?

  • I freeze meatballs all the time (same recipe as my meatloaf, kids just prefer small meatballs). They taste just as good as fresh. Wrap well, first in plastic, then in foil, then in a freezer bag, and it'll keep for quite some time.

  • I've never had a problem with it after it was cooked and frozen.
