Meat loaves are easy to make and freeze really well – you might as well make a few at a time. To make 4 meat loaves:
- 4 lbs ground beef
- 4 eggs
- 4lbs ground pork
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 2 sticks of celery, finely chopped
- 4 tbsp crushed garlic
- 4 tbsp Worcester sauce
- 1/2 cup ketchup (or more if preferred)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup quick cook oats
Sometimes I use frozen chopped onions which don’t need to be cooked before hand. If you’re using fresh onions and celery, sauté them in butter for a few minutes to soften them first.
My stand mixer can only handle 4 pounds of meat in a time, so I make it in two batches. Blend all of your ingredients and divide into 4 equal parts. I like to freeze mine in my loaf pan shape so I don’t have to sacrifice my loaf pan to the freezer, but I can still cook the meat loaf in it when I’m ready to.
Each meatloaf will be about 2 lbs and will easily feed 2 adults and 3-4 kids (depending on age).
