Freezer Meal Idea – Mini BBQ Meatloaves


  • 2 pounds ground Italian sausage or ground beef {you can do half and half (, too!})
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup green onions (, thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 cup panko or plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs (, lightly beaten)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat 2 muffin tins with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except BBQ sauce. Divide mixture evenly among 16-24 cups {depending on how large you want your mini loaves}. Press your thumb into the top of each loaf and top with a few teaspoons of barbecue sauce. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until center is 160F.
  2. If you want to make a freezer meal out of it, place the cooked and cooled loaves {still in the pan} into the freezer until frozen. Then pop them out into a Ziploc bag and place in the freezer.
  3. When you’re ready to cook, completely thaw. Place meatloaves on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for 15 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. You can brush with some extra BBQ sauce before heating if you’d like.
