With school, work and a calendar full of activities, life gets pretty busy! Make sure your family gets the nutrition they need with freezer-friendly home-cooked meals that will simplify your life.
Broccoli Cheddar Cups and Veggie Lovers Quiche sneak a serving of vegetables in each bite and can be frozen ahead of time to make getting out the door easy each morning! To freeze Broccoli Cheddar Cups, wrap each individual cup in plastic wrap and put them in a large freezer-safe bag. When it’s time for breakfast, just throw them in the microwave for one to two minutes. To freeze prepared quiche, cover it with plastic wrap and then wrap it in aluminum foil – it can be frozen for up to three months, just be sure to defrost it overnight in the fridge before reheating.
Greek Yogurt Waffles and Double Blueberry Greek Yogurt Waffles can also be prepped ahead of time and frozen for later; just pop them in the toaster on a busy morning and breakfast will be ready in minutes! Try making an extra batch of Mixed Berry Greek Yogurt Bagels, which can also be frozen for a later date. Simply put your waffles or bagels in a freezer-safe plastic bag and squeeze out all of the air to freeze for a future protein-packed breakfast.
Pasta dishes, as well as soups are super easy to freeze, and they tend to reheat very well. Baked Spaghetti Lasagna, Skillet White Chicken Lasagna and Baked Rigatoni Pasta with Spinach and Meatballs are all wholesome freezer-friendly meals that the whole family will love. Throw Slow Cooker Italian Turkey Chili in the crockpot around lunchtime, and it’ll be ready in time for dinner or make Broccoli Cheese Soup in the instant pot – then freeze the leftovers to enjoy later. To freeze pasta or soup, just fill an airtight container or bag and try not to leave any space for air, which will cause freezer burn.
Even Mexican inspired favorites like Three Cheese Beef Enchiladas and Bean and Rice Burritos can be frozen! Simply wrap enchiladas or individual burritos tightly in aluminum foil, then place them in a freezer-safe bag. Casseroles like Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole and Cheesy Mexican Chicken Quinoa Casserole are freezer-friendly too. Just make sure to let your casserole cool completely after baking, then wrap it tightly with aluminum foil and place in a freezer-safe container.
