Freezer Meals: Mini Meatloaves!

Over the years I have done a lot of freezer meals. It is just so nice to have things on hand and it doesn’t take a lot more time to make multiples of one recipe. When ground beef goes on sale, it’s a great time to make these mini meatloaves. When I do this recipe I usually form 2 regular-sized meatloaves and do the rest mini. I don’t cook the larger loaves ahead of time.

Mini Meatloaves

(makes 3 dozen mini loaves or 2 large loaves + 18 mini loaves)
.
6 lb ground beef
6 C bread crumbs
2 C milk
4 beaten egg
2 t dry mustard
2 T worcestershire sauce
salt & pepper to taste
1 C ketchup
1/2 C corn syrup
.
Combine milk, egg, worcestershire sauce, seasonings and crumbs. Let stand 5 minutes. Mix in beef (I prefer a food processor for this).
.
Bake at 350* for 20 minutes.
.
Combine ketchup and corn syrup and brush onto meatloaf. Bake 10 minutes more. Cool completely.
.
Flash freeze the mini loaves and then you can combine them into one bag for storage. To cook, simply heat in the microwave (from thawed or frozen)
.
*For large loaves, shape & freeze (don’t bake ahead). Thaw in the fridge & bake at 350* for one hour. Mix 1/2 C ketchup + 1/4 C corn syrup, brush (or pour) on top and cook for another 15 minutes.
