90+ Freezer meal Recipes

Flash Freeze Method: Line a cookie tray with parchment paper and set your items so they are close but not touching. Freeze for 20 minutes then transfer to a freezer safe container or bag. This is especially great for waffles, breads, muffins, pancakes, meatballs, and anything that would have a tendency to stick together.

Individually Wrap Method: Follow the steps for the flash freeze method above stopping after the 20 minutes in the freezer. Wrap each item individually and place in a freezer safe container or bag.

Containers: This is an important one. Using the proper freezer containers prolongs the life of each of your recipes. I like to use Freezer Ziploc’s, air tight containers like the ones below, and tightly sealed foil containers.

Breakfast
It’s the most important meal of the day (or so I’m told) which means you don’t want to skip it! Keeping some of these great recipes on hand makes it quick and easy to fuel your mind before you head out the door. I find it especially easy when I’ve hit the snooze button once or twice to grab a breakfast burrito and run out the door!

Tips and things to keep in mind: Most of these recipes (like pancakes and waffles) will require the flash freeze method. Make sure you clearly label each with the date. Pancakes, Waffles, French toast, granola, or any other bread will last 3 months in the freezer if stored properly. Breakfast burritos, breakfast casserole, and breakfast sandwiches will require the individually wrap method and last 1 month.

Dinners

Dinners are one of my all time favorite things to freeze. Pasta is my go-to but there are so many more options out there so don’t limit yourself! Make sure you wrap and store things properly for maximum results! Refer to this food and safety chart for more information on how long you can store each item.

Desserts

Let’s be honest, sometimes it’s great to have fresh baked cookies ready for company but you really don’t want to have to worry about clean up. What if I told you that you can freeze unbaked cookie dough and just pop it into the oven whenever the need arises?! Just use the flash freeze method and add 1-2 minutes to your bake time! But don’t limit yourself to just cookies. Try freezing cakes (using the individually wrap method), frosting, jellies and jams, and so much more!
