Notes

Storage tips
Meatloaf is one of the best recipes for meal prep. Just about every recipe I've made tastes great made ahead of time.
For the week
Assemble the ingredients and prepare the mini meatloaves ahead of time. You can store the uncooked meatloaves on the sheet pan, cover them with plastic wrap and a refrigerator. 
If you don't have that kind of room in your refrigerator, you can store the meatloaves in glass meal prep containers. Or, you can keep them on a plate and cover them with plastic wrap or foil. When you're ready to cook them, continue with the recipe.
Cook ahead of time and then heat and eat during the week. This is the way I cook ahead meatloaf most often. Meatloaf is a recipe that reheats great so, if I have time on meal prep day, I'll make it then. I will also cook the veggies to store alongside the meatloaf to make individual meal prep bowls to heat and eat all week for lunch or dinner.
To freeze
Freezing mini meatloaf is the same as freezing whole meatloaf recipes.
  1. Mix the ingredients and assemble the mini meatloaves.
  2. Then, place the meatloaves onto a sheet pan and flash freeze. Individually wrap the meatloaves in plastic wrap and foil, stick them into a large freezer bag, label, and freeze.
  3. When ready to eat, remove the meatloaves from the freezer the night before and let the loaves thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
  4. Remove the wrapping and continue with the recipe. If the meatloaves are still frozen a little, you'll need to add more cooking time.
