Freezer recipes are handy for busy weeknights. Having them stored in the freezer helps stay on a diet and eating less take out. I did this cooking for many years when my kids were younger. My favorite freezer meal cookbook was Once-a-Month Cooking by Mimi Wilson and Mary Beth Lagerborg. Click on the link, and you can buy it on Amazon (affiliate). It helped me save money, time and keep my kids and me on a healthier diet. I found that soups and chili recipes work great in the freezer. Other freezer meal favorites are marinated meat dishes. While they defrost, they are marinating the meat. What a great idea, it’s doing two tasks at once. Awesome! Over the last three years, I shared my weeknight recipes to help moms and dads eat better and keep their kids and themselves more organized. This post is my collection of freezer meals that will help you start. I hope that you try at least a few of these recipes and that it helps you and your family. Enjoy.
6 Freezer Meals to Make This Week
Soup recipes are excellent for weeknight meals. Beans, especially black beans are a staple in our house. They are great to create a quick soup and gives enough fiber to fill us up.
White chilis are my favorite, as you can see (there are a 4 of them in this post). I made several variations of this recipe and you can too.
I’m a fan of turkey. It seems more flavorful to me. This soup recipe using turkey sausage filing.
Tomatoes are a great add-on to a weeknight chili recipe. This one can even be added to a pasta dish for added meat and flavor.
This recipe really is perfect for the freezer. Make a double batch and freeze half. It’s so yummy. It does take some time to set up and cook. I like doing this recipe on Sundays and freezing half the batch for later. The longer this dish sits after it is cooked, the better it is. So, be patient, and you will be rewarded.
This is another white chili recipe. Mix it up and add your favorite veggies for your family. Zucchini may not be their favorite. Carrots are great to add to the chili and would do wonderfully with these white chilis.
I tend to use turkey a great deal in my recipes, but if you wish, you can substitute chicken or lean beef in these recipes. They will work just as well. Now, it’s your turn. Which one is your favorite? I enjoy the Texas Chili recipe in the colder weather. It’s my go-to comfort food.
