Hi heather! Thanks for your amazing website and recipes! I’m a college student and I realized (after cooking) that a pound of beef might not be exactly single serving friendly 🙂 I only had an eighth of it and it was so good that I don’t want it to go bad in the fridge…how long have you kept it for and have you ever frozen it?

Hi Jasmine,
Thanks for reading my blog and I’m glad you tried the meatloaf. It never lasts very long around here (CD loves his meatloaf!), but you can store it in the refrigerator for a couple of days (I wouldn’t keep it much longer than that), and I’ve read you can freeze cooked meatloaf for up to three months. You could cut it into individual servings, wrap in saran wrap and foil, and have dinner on hand whenever you get a meatloaf craving! 🙂

Hey girl i know you disabled comments on your main posts but i just had to tell you i made your lazy girll meatloaf last night for my and my man and ohmygosh it was ridiculous!! i doubled the recipe and we both ate almost the whole thing over the course of a night! I’m so happy i found the most delicious meatloaf ever that is low carb for the bf! definately gonna be makin some more of your recipes girl 🙂 🙂

Thank you so much Heather! I made this tonight using muffin tins because I realized too late that my kiddos would not be patient enough for an hour. They cooked great in 25 minutes. The two year old claimed “this is delicious Mommy!” and my 6 year old (whose favorite food is meatloaf) said this is his favorite one yet! I’ve made them all kinds of bready, Paula Deen type recipes that I can’t eat, and here they love yours the best. Thank you for an awesome one meal for the whole fam recipe 🙂

So happy to hear the meatloaf was a hit with the whole fam. Thanks for letting me know. 🙂

I’d been a vegetarian (& vegan at times) for two years until recently when my nutritionist suggested I try eating meat again to improve my energy level. I found your meatloaf recipe & decided to make it for myself & my roommates tonight– OUR APARTMENT SMELLS WONDERFUL. This is the first time I’ve eaten red meat in years & I think I may actually like meatloaf now. Thank you for the recipe!


HEAB November 30, 2010 at 11:56 pm

I’m honored one of my recipes brought you back into the world of red meat. Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed it, and I hope your energy levels improve soon. 🙂

So I have to say when I first started mixing this meatloaf I was a little worried because it is so wet and when your used to having semi-dry meatloaf with breadcrumbs this recipe seems really moist. But it is fabulous!! I made it tonight and it was really delicious, thank you for a bread-crumb free and grass-fed beef meatloaf, it was so good. 🙂


HEAB November 14, 2010 at 12:58 pm

So glad you enjoyed the meatloaf. Thanks for letting me know. 🙂

Hi again!

I was wondering if you’ve ever tried doubling or tripling this recipe. Does the cook time stay the same? Also, what does CD mean? 🙂 I’m a noob.


Heather Eats Almond Butter June 26, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Hey Candice, No, I have never tried doubling it, but I would think if you just bake it in a bigger casserole dish, the baking time would probably stay the same. However, if you bake several dishes at a time, you may need to increase the time by 10 minutes or so.

Yummy! This was so tasty!


Heather Eats Almond Butter June 23, 2010 at 8:57 pm

Candice, So glad you enjoyed – one of CD’s favorites! 🙂

I made this Friday night and it was AWESOME! I added some shredded cheese, a diced green pepper and shredded squash (had to get rid of some things in the fridge). It’s so nice to find a recipe without oats or breadcrumbs!


Heather Eats Almond Butter May 17, 2010 at 7:44 am

Susannah, I know – I have no idea why so many meatloaf recipes call for breadcrumbs! So unnecessary. Happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe – it’s one of CD favs. 🙂

Looking forward to trying out some of the veggie bowls soon

Hope you enjoy some veggie bowls soon and thanks for reading my blog.
