Delicious dinner recipe? Check. Makes a lot of leftovers? Check. Approved by all ages in the family? Check. Feeds a large group of people? Check. Easy to make? Check! I oftentimes just divide this recipe into two different 8×8 dishes. I make one that night and freeze the other before baking.
Here’s a twist on your average meatloaf recipe: Meatloaf Muffins! This easy dinner idea is not only freezer friendly but one that will find itself in your dinner rotation over and over again. This makes a great weeknight dinner or freezer meal for any family. Assemble but do not bake. Then, wrap the muffin tin well with plastic wrap and a layer of foil and freeze.
Easy Beefy Quesadillas
This recipe (from our cookbook, From Freezer to Table) is one of my husband’s top 3 most requested dinners. To make it a freezer meal, place cooked and cooled beef filling in an airtight freezer bag or container. In a separate bag, freeze the cheese. In yet another bag, freeze the tortillas. Freeze all the bags together as a kit. Boom. Dinner is ready!
This fake-out lasagna is a dinner time favorite in my home. Very easy to make, super filling and is freezer friendly. My kids love this meal! To make it a freezer meal, assemble the casserole, but do not bake. Wrap the unbaked casserole tightly before putting in the freezer. When ready to cook, thaw in the fridge (may take up to 48 hours) or thaw in the microwave on defrost setting. Bake according to instructions.
A much healthier and tastier version of the canned stuff! To make it a freezer meal, fully cook and cool the Sloppy Joes. Freeze meat in an airtight container. To reheat, use one of our safe thawing methods.
This Mexican soup recipe never fails to please a crowd. It is one of my favorite recipes!

These meatballs are full of flavor and packed with sneaky nutrition thanks to the finely chopped carrot, onion, garlic, and parsley. Our entire family loves them! Just double the recipe and freeze half of them for future lunches or dinners. They make such a great ground beef freezer meal!
