I've got:

bread, pitta bread, bagels, crumpets
peas
potato
vegan smoothie ice lollies
veggie burger mix (homemade with egg)

I think! If you make the burgers and cook them you may be able to freeze again

You could refreeze all of that.

Bread could prob survive a re freezer if anything it may be drier but perfectly OK to toast. Crumpets may go soggy though.

Personally I would just refreeze the lot, but that might not be acceptable to everyone.

I'd just refreeze. There's nothing in that that would worry me much. It's mainly meat I would be mega careful with.

Me too - freeze it all and if it needs chucking when you come to actually eat it welm so be it. You tried. Think you'll find vast majority will be fine. I'd even refreeze meat (not chicken mind you) provided it wasn't warm I.e . hadn't been lying for hours.

I would just shut the freezer and pretend I hadn't noticed that it had defrosted.

thanks all, that's really helpful, i'll have a look at that link now.
I've always been bothered by food hygiene but now with a baby it's even worse! I try and use common sense but sometimes my brain just goes bleugh.
