Super Easy Freezing tips

When you buy your meat in bulk, put the marinade in the bag when you divide it up to freeze. The marinade will soak in as it freezes and then again as it thaws.

Cook up a batch of taco meat spoon it into GREASED cupcake pans. Freeze. Pop out the taco “muffins” and put in a baggie. Each “muffin” makes one soft taco. (also works with sloppy joe meat, shredded bbq pork or chicken)

Wash and cut fruit, spread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze. When frozen solid portion all the fruit into baggies for ready to make smoothies. Just add yogurt and juice and blend. (you can even freeze bananas, just remove the peel)

Put sauces in freezers bags and freeze flat for more freezer space

Easiest way to do freezer cooking, is to double a meal that you are already making. Eat half, and freeze the other half.

When freezing a casserole (you’ll want your dish for the next one) line your dish with foil before cooking. Freeze it. Once frozen use the foil to take it out and store it in a gallon size bag in the freeze.

Make a batch of pancakes and flash freeze them(lay them on a backing sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid) then put them in a bag. Flash freezing will keep them from sticking together in the bag.

You can freeze muffins by putting them in the freezer uncooked. Once frozen, pop them out and store them in a bag. Bake frozen adding 2 minutes to your cook time.

Make cookie dough, roll it into balls, and flash freeze. Put the balls in a bag, and pull out and cook as many as you want at a time.

Make stuffed shells by baking them in a muffin tin (sprayed with cooking spray), freeze and then pop them out and put in a bag. Reheat and serve.

Cook sausage and scrambled eggs together, freeze in greased muffin tins. Pop out and freeze. Each chunk makes a breakfast burrito
