Freezer Meal Recipe Trade

Hey ladies!! So I am prepping some freezer meals in early October. This batch is to get me through the end of my pregnancy. Then I would like to get a second batch prepped over Christmas break to last me after baby.

So I thought it would be fun to get some ideas on what you ladies are making so I can get a variety of things in my freezer. And hopefully you can too!!!

I love cooking and come from a family of restaurateurs so this thread is just up my alley lol!

The first thing that comes to mind are burekas. I always make batches and freeZe them. You make a filling and put a few tb in a square of puff pastry and make into a triangle and seal edges with water. You freeze them flat on a tray and when they are frozen you can put them in a bag.

When you want to eat them you take them out and place on a nonstick tray, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame if you want and cook at 400 Fahrenheit for about 30-45 min depending on how big.

I usually eat with salad and hard boiled eggs. My go to fillings:

Mashed potato with fried onions, butter, a few raw eggs and parsley
Cooked ground beef with allspice, pine nuts, parsley, fried onions
Cooked spinach with shredded meunster cheese, a few raw eggs, fried onions

Love this thread!
I make big scale based of mince/onion/tomato/seasoning and garlic and turn it into spag Bol, cottage pies, chilli con carne, lasagne etc. And whenever I'm cooking something for dinner I double up and freeze half, I built up quite a stock during the last couple of months of pregnancy and it was honestly the best thing ever once I had had the baby!
