I like to do some meals in the form of freezer meals. So when I am having a busy week we don’t end up eating out and eating up our budget. By making some meals ahead for the freezer all the messy work gets out-of-the-way in one shot. By making more than one batch of each recipe, after a few weeks I have a good variety of dishes to use for dinners or lunches.
Just today I took some ground hamburger that I purchased on sale and made a big batch of meatballs. I divided them up into serving sizes and then frozen them. I use them in pasta sauce over noodles. My family also likes them with barbecue sauce on them and then baked. I usually will cook them before placing them into the freezer but you can freeze them before cooking if you prefer.
I recently made a new recipe for pot pie filling. My family really likes pot pies but I hate the time it takes to make the filling and then the crust. I always seem to be busy right when I need to start dinner so having quick to prepare meals really helps me to get dinner on the table at a decent time.
So to make the pot pies quicker to make, recently I put together the filling for the pot pie and then frozen the filling in 4 cup portions in freezer bags. I wasn’t sure how it would work as I added potatoes to the mix. Sometimes potatoes don’t freeze very well but to my surprise it worked out great. I will be sharing the recipe soon.
But for now here are a few freezer recipe that I like.
Do you freezer cook? If you do what is your favorite recipe to make?
