Meatloaf is a filling and nutritional main dish, but the preparation process can be time-consuming and tedious. Freezing raw meatloaf not only saves you time, but it preserves the quality of the ingredients so a healthy meal is always on hand when you need it. Whether you make your loaf with ground beef, turkey, lamb or chicken, all meatloaves freeze well -- you can even freeze double or triple batches at once to save even more time.
