Can I Freeze Meatloaf?
Yes, freezing meatloaf is a great way to store leftovers or make a double batch and freeze one for when you're short on time! You can freeze meatloaf up to 3 months.Tip: When freezing meatloaf it's easier to store it in slices so you can bring our just what you need and it will thaw much faster. To reheat your meatloaf, let it thaw completely then reheat in the oven on a baking sheet at 305F until piping hot all the way through.
Top Tips for Making this Easy Meatloaf
You can switch up the flavors with different herbs and spices.
If you don't like chili sauce you can use ketchup or barbecue sauce.
Make sure to let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes before serving so it soaks up all the juices and flavor. If you cut into any meat when it's too hot it will dry out straight away.
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
