    Hi there!
    Have you ever substituted sesame seeds for the poppy seeds?

    • Rachel says

      Ooo, no, but that sounds like a fantastic idea.

  8. Jill says

    Do you think I could make groups of 4 in a foil packet, wrap tight and freeze in a big Ziploc, then thaw and bake all in the same foil? It’s just my husband and myself so I need smaller portions.

    You said in your post that the lunches were good for microwaving, but I only see instructions for baking. Are these meals microwavable? They all look delicious and I know my hubby would enjoy them, but his lunches have to be microwaved at work.

    • Rachel says

      Well most of the lunches would be cooked ahead of time and then warmed in the microwave.

      • Heidi says

        Of course! Lol thank you!

    • Kyle says

      We have made these several times and they can be reheated in the microwave, but not prepared in the microwave.

    What would you serve as a side? Thanks in advance.

      Thanks for the question, Summer. I just updated the recipe!

  13. Jodie says

    So if I was making these for him to take to work think they would be okay to bake and then freeze?

    • Rachel says

      I haven’t tried that, but I think it would probably work.
