Make-ahead instructions
Meatloaf can be made completely ahead of time, sliced into portions, and store in the refrigerator (up to 3-4 days) or freezer (up to 3 months). However, if you don't want to cook it completely ahead of time you can prepare the meatloaf up until it goes into the oven. It can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple days or you can wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the freezer up to 3 months. If you choose to freeze then lay plastic wrap down first then form the loaf on top of it. Place it in the freezer to freeze for a bit or "flash freeze" then take the loaf out and wrap it up a couple times in more plastic wrap and place it in the freezer. Take it out a day or 2 ahead of time to thaw in the refrigerator before you cook it. Continue with the rest of the recipe. Please note if cooking from the refrigerator it might need a few extra minutes cooking time.  The internal temperature should be 165 degrees.
