This is getting even more perfected TL......good idea!

Just to be clear, they are already wrapped in plastic wrap when I squish them. Since I don't have one of those vacuum sealers, it's not handy for me to put the packets in cold water to defrost.

Let me know how yours turns out.
LP,

This turned out good as a meatloaf. The taste is a little different from the North American standard meatloaf but good.

Large amounts of ground beef I make into 1/4 lb patties for Shrek and freeze them that way. If I am cooking I take out however many I want. Shrek can make himself hamburgers until he explodes...cuz he will NEVER get tired of them.

I got everything ready for my Tamale Meatloaf and NO TACO SEAS. MIX! I left out the cubed cornbread filler and just added a meatloaf seasoning packet I had picked up. It's okay, but not what I was hungry for.

Fortunately, shopping tomorrow will be at the Sav-A-Lot store where they carry my favorite taco seasoning packets. Last time I got the Great Value kind from Walmart. It's not my favorite. Spicier than I like.
