What are freezer meals?
Before we dive into all of the delicious recipes. Let’s take a moment to discuss what freezer meals are.
Freezer meals are simply a way to prepare your recipe ahead of time. This can be done a couple of ways:
- Dump meals AKA No pre cooking required
Dump meals are what super busy mom’s dreams are made of!
This is where you dump all of the ingredients into a bag, and place into the freezer. You will thaw the bag of ingredients in the fridge overnight. And then toss into a slow cooker, Instant pot, or sheet pan to cook the next day.
- Partial cook freezer meals
The partial cook freezer meals will be more along the lines of casseroles and some soups. This is where you will cook your meat, and go ahead and build the layers to the recipe. A perfect example of this would be lasagna or enchiladas.
Then you will place your ingredients in a disposable pan, and heat when you are ready to eat.
- Leftover freezer meals
This is when you will freeze whatever leftovers you have from a meal, and freeze for later. Another one of busy mom’s favorites because it’s like the gift that keeps on giving.
P.S. You can totally freeze pizza leftovers the next time you order delivery. 😉
How do I package meals for the freezer?
Another question that comes up a lot with how to meal prep freezer meals, is how to package the meals to go into the freezer.
