Season and form 3 pounds into meatballs.Cook and cool completely, Place half in freezer bag and label Italian. Bag and Label the other half peach glazed.
Form 1 pound into burgers, season to taste, freeze, uncooked, with wax paper between. If you have extra beef make more burgers for later.
season and form a 2-3 pound meatloaf, freeze in a disposable tin loaf pan. (you may choose to freeze raw or cooked)

Brown 5-7 pounds-
Separate 1 pound and freeze for sloppy joes.
Season 1 1/2 pound as taco meat, freeze.
Season and label 1-2 pounds as chili meat. You may choose to mix all your chili ingredients and freeze as a whole. Split remaining browned beef into the following two -
prepare enchiladas and egg rolls as directed by recipe and freeze enchiladas in pan. Freeze egg rolls separately and place into a bag so they will be ready to thaw and deep fry.

This is such a smart way of cooking! It's only my husband and I at home now but I bet I could apply these principles to just us!
