Do you put eggs in your meatloaf? If so I would throw it away. You should never eat raw egg.

^^^ Why it's gonna be cooked? But freezing raw meat and the egg in mix might destroy the eggs binding ability.

Eggs freeze just fine.

Thaw the meat loaf in the refrigerator, or put it in the oven frozen, Either way will work. If it is frozen, cover it tightly with foil and put it in the oven about 300 degrees. It will take it quite awhile to cook, but it will cook just fine. You cover it so the top won't get overly browned or dried out. Close to the end of baking, take foil off so the top can brown.

I have been told by multiple people that the combination of the raw egg and raw chop meat can take too long to freeze through and through and that can create a bacteria. If this is untrue according to to others then ignore it but I will never freeze raw chop meat and an egg.

I don't see how this can be the case. I am using eggs and ground meat out of the fridge and putting them into the freezer. They are both already cold, and I am not leaving them out.

Well, I will not be eating raw egg, because I do not eat raw meatloaf. I will say that no matter what anyone here or anywhere says to me, I will never stop licking the cake batter or banana nut bread batter, or brownie batter, or anything batter spoons for as long as I am alive and baking.....

Put frozen meatloaf in the microwave set at only 30% power and check it about every
5 - 10 minutes, then bake it in the oven as usual.

I think cooking them from the frozen state would take an ungodly long time -- you have to get the meat in the center to be fully cooked. I'm thinking of those prefab turkey loaves you get from the store -- they are solidly frozen and take 2.5 hours to bake at 350 degrees. It seems like if you were not VERY careful about the temp, you would wind up with a delectable outer layer of meatloaf and steak tartare filling. In other words, BLECCH.

My 2 cents worth is, next time, I would bake all three meatloaves and freeze the cooked ones for other meals.
