Mama’s Meatloaf: Great for freezing, even better for eating!



  • 2lb ground turkey/chicken (I wait till this goes on sale – some times for .99 per pound as a managers special at my local stores)
  • 3lb ground beef – I use 80/20 if mixing it with the turkey, if I use all ground beef I use a leaner ground
  • 2 lg onions chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt or salt substitute (we prefer Lawry’s seasoning salt)
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ cup bread crumbs (I make my own from the crusts off our loaves of bread – just freeze them till your ready to use them then spritz with a bit of Pam, bake at 375 till crispy, place in a food processor and pulse till they are finely ground)
  • 2 eggs


Mix all ingredients then portion into mini loafs (about 2 cups per loaf)

Once you have the loaves portioned out use the bowl to mix up 2 cups Ketchup, ½ cup brown sugar, ¼ tsp black pepper and a dash or two of hot sauce (optional). Spoon sauce over the top of the loaves and bake in a 350 oven for 20-30 min’s till the internal temp is 150 degrees. Let rest then freeze in individual Ziplocs. They make great meals or thawed and cut into slices for sandwiches!

Hi, I'm Shane, aka Hungry Dad. I'm as busy as everyone these days and my two boys just add to that. I hate when we have to eat out and love to come home and have a home cooked meal with the family after a rough day. But who has the time, right? Well, with a lot of trial and error we found a bunch of great, easy to make recipes that can be made in bulk and freeze well. This means we can have home cookin' in about the same time as making a box of mac and cheese. Convenient and yummy!
