With the price of food going up so much lately, it makes sense to buy when the price is low on something you use. Extra lean ground beef was on sale, so I bought 10 lbs. I made my meatloaf recipe and put it these small baking dishes. These are enough for DH and me and with a bit left over for lunch. I freeze these in my foodsaver bags and pull it out when we want meatloaf. I also make two patties and freeze them in the bags. They are easy to defrost and there is no waste.
