Crockpot Meatloaf Freezer Meal

Crockpot Meatloaf smells delicious as it cooks all day! This is one of the easiest freezer crockpot meals to make as you don’t need to brown the burger first. My daughter had never had meatloaf until this and now it’s a requested meal. I’m happy to oblige since it’s got wholesome ingredients and is easy to make!


Meatloaf for the slow cooker is great for batch preparation. I usually make 5 at a time and freeze them. When you freeze yours make sure first to smoosh all the ingredients around in the bag to help mix them up and then shape the bag in a block instead of laying flat like you typically do for crockpot freezer meals. I do this because I don’t have to thaw out the package first so I just drop it in and go about my day.
