As I mention in my about page I’m not really a recipe person. However, I can make a concerted effort to put together instructions which are like a recipe. Here is that attempt for meatloaf:
2lbs ground beef (or turkey)
First, grab two gallon size ziplock bags. Pour a good amount of bread crumbs into each bag (enough to make meatloaf with one pound of meat). You can always add more if the consistency is wrong, so err on the side of less. Next, add a handful or so of shredded cheese to each bag. Dice the onion & split it between the bags.
Divide the 2lbs of meat in half & put one half in each bag. Crack an egg I to each bag, and add the garlic powder, seasonings, maybe some salt.
Now press as much air out of each bag as you can & deal it shut.
Mix the meatloaf together by kneading it while it’s in the bag. This is a trick I figured out after too many child-related disasters while elbow deep in raw meat. Mix it together as much & as well as you can.
Now, write the date & “meatloaf” on one bag & put it in the freezer.
Put the second meatloaf mix in a greased pan, cover with a little barbecue sauce, & throw foil over it before sticking it in the fridge for later.
When it’s time to cook it, bake at 375 (ish) for 45mins to an hour. Poke it with a meat thermometer to be sure it’s safe. The internet says the safe internal temp for ground beef is 160, while turkey is 165. That seems arbitrary to me, but I don’t science.
Alternatively, you could use a crock pot liner instead of a ziplock bag, then when it’s time to cook, put it in the crock pot on low for, idk, let’s say 5-6 hours. High for 4. Use a meat thermometer to be sure.
