10 Amazing Freezer Meals

Amazing Freezer Meals

Preparing freezer meals can save a lot of time and money if your family is like so many others and constantly on the go.  I don’t use freezer meals often, but knowing that I have a few meals ready to go is something that I relish.  If I didn’t have freezer meals ready to go, it would be SO easy to head to the drive thru and spend a bunch of money on food that is not very healthy at all.

With all these recipes, just double the ingredients and freeze half.  That way there is no reason to schedule a full day for a full day of freezer-cooking.  Simply put up an extra meal here and there, which will save you time later.

Even though I plan out meals for 52 Weeks of No-Repeat Meal Plans, it is always helpful to have a few meals ready and waiting for those days that things don’t go as planned.

Here are 10 amazing freezer meals that my family of four loves:

 If you’re considering freezer cooking and haven’t done it before, take it easy.  Put up one or two recipes a week to get started and see what you think.  If you have the extra room in your freezer, freezer cooking can be a worthwhile investment of your freezer space, saving you time and money.

      Hi Michelle,
      For casserole type meals, I normally just freeze them in a casserole dish. You could also use an aluminum pan and slip it in a ziploc bag, and I have dumped the meal in a freezer bag to freeze it flat before too, which works great. Thaw it out, put it in a casserole dish, and bake.

    This is going to sound like the most stupid question ever, so I apologise! Obviously you cook these meals, wait for them to cool and then freeze them. But then how do you cook them from the freezer? Oven from frozen? Defrost thoroughly before re-heating? Or some other way? Sorry for sounding like an idiot!

      I usually take freezer meals out of the freezer the night before, stick them in the refrigerator to let them defrost, and then bake them up for dinner. Enjoy!
