Place your leftover meatloaf in an airtight container and place in the refrigerator for up to three days. Then after use your best judgment of the quality and if it is expired. You never want to eat bad food, you run the risk of getting sick.
Ways To Reheat Meatloaf
Warm up your meatloaf in the microwave, slice and eat cold on a sandwich, or toss leftovers in the oven and wrap in foil and heat it up that way. Just make sure the meatloaf is covered in the oven so it doesn't dry out as you warm it up. I turn oven to 350 degrees and heat 15 minutes or until warmed through.
Can You Freeze Meatloaf
Sure, you are welcome to freeze your leftover meatloaf. Simply slice it up or leave whole and place in an airtight container or make single servings. Then store in the fridge for up to three months.
