Freezer meal ideas?


I need some healthy freezer meal ideas to make.  I plan to do some cooking this week and stock the freezer.


Re: Freezer meal ideas?

  • My go-to's are going to be pasta sauce, meatballs, lasagna, chili, chicken noodle soup, enchiladas...I may be forgetting a few.

  • I wish I could help.  My mom is in charge of researching and figuring some out in the next month or so.  I am a pretty bad cook. Embarrassed

  • we made swedish meatballs, a bunch of soups (I think 5 or 6 kinds), chicken cacciatore, and beef stew.

    Typically if it has a sauce or it's in liquid it will freeze well.

    I also ordered one of those Entertainment books this year - ebates is doing a sale on them, so I got it for $20 with free shipping. There are coupons for salad places in our area and subway, etc.

    So I grabbed a bunch of takeout menus for places in the Entertainment book and highlighted the healthiest options on the menu so we could just pick from that stuff when in a bind.

    Fingers crossed that we survive :) 

  • I made spinach and black bean enchiladas, lasagna, chicken and sausage gumbo, chili, and corn soup. healthy versions of course. Anyone have some great soup recipes?????

  • This soup is awesome and it makes a TON!

    Also, I have been making these for a quick lunch. They freeze great.


    2 Pkgs. thawed empanada dough

    Shredded chicken or pork (I use 2 chicken breasts and 1 lb of pork butt - easy in the crockpot)

    can of black beans drained

    bag of frozen corn

    8 oz. shredded cheese

    fill each empanada round with about a tblsp. of meat. Add a little bit of corn & black beans. Finish with cheese.

    Fold dough over and crimp with fork.  To freeze - place them on a cookie sheet and freeze for about 2 hours.

    You can then place them in a freezer bag.

    Take from freezer and bake at 400 for about 30-40 minutes. 

    This will make 20 empanadas.

  • Here's what I've made this past week:


    Chicken Black Bean Chili

    Turkey & Artichoke Stuffed Shells

    Turkey Meatballs with Spinach Tomato Sauce

    Italian Wedding Soup

    Ribbollita Soup

     I bought a bunch of pyrex at Sam's Club last week, ($25)- they all have lids and all are ready to take out of the freezer and into the oven/stovetop.

    I also bought a few organic chicken pot pies that I keep in the freezer.  Let me know if you want any recipes, I'm a pretty good cook Smile
