I usually make Beef Stew, Cottage Pie etc which freeze really well but has anyone any great recipes (which don't involve Michelin Star status cooking) that I can make over the next few days and that will freeze well.

Will eat most things just not a fan of Lamb.

spag bol (well not the pasta!)

in fact most things freeze ok...i have frozen roast dinners before now !!(in separate containers)

Fish pie
Pasta sauces
Most stew/casserole things - sausage & bean, chicken & chorizo, coq au vin type things

I would be tempted to make up a huge amount of mince bolognaise and freeze it in separate containers. You can defrost what you need and either add pasta, mashed potatoes or rice.

Cauliflower cheese
Shepherd's pie
Fish pie
Pizza (you have made)
Spag bol

Jacket pots are great meals that don;t need you to slave over them and you can add spag bol, baked beans and cheese

Thanks everyone, my pg brain has obliterated all knowledge of food I can make. grin

Agree re bolognaise sauce, it can be used for quite a few different meals.

I am going to go out shopping and buy twice as much as I need and batch cook over the weekend.

I buy the take away foil packets and then write on the top what is inside/when I made it ect.

Apple crumbles are good, bread and butter puds etc
