* Many supermarkets and butcher shops sell a meatloaf mix of beef/pork/lamb or beef/pork. Ground pork and/or lamb can be reduced or eliminated by increasing ground beef.
Hack: Slice leftover meatloaf and place in a single layer on cookie sheet in freezer. When frozen, stack pieces in freezer bag or container, separating slices with parchment paper.
