Default Freezer Meals

My DH is having major surgery in a few weeks and my goal is to fill my chest freezer with approximately three weeks of meals.

What are your favorite make ahead freezer meal recipes?

Default Re: Freezer Meals

It depends on what you consider freezer meals! I keep components on hand and things I can cook from frozen (including leftovers to reheat - I do the cook double and freeze half method), not necessarily whole meals ready to go.

I usually have Meatballs, Marinara, Pesto, broth, and taco meat in my freezer at any given time. I can make several meals from those.
Meatball Casserole - meatballs, marinara, pesto or pizza sauce, cheese; bake at 375 until bubbly
Also Meatball subs, Italian Wedding Soup (broth, pasta, spinach)


Frozen peppers and onions for crock pot/instant pot meals

My thought is to do some of everything...cook double and freeze half for casseroles or soup and such, as well as maybe some pre-assembled crockpot meals that I can assemble raw, freeze, and then just have ready to dump in the crockpot when I need it.

I made the meals from the original freezer meal cookbook. Took 2 full days to do 30 meals.

I did 15 meals, but doubled those. It was completely worth it.
