Freezer food ideas

(14 Posts)

Chilli and Spag Bol are the obvious meals for the freezer as well as a good vegie soup. Do you have any other ideas? We're not big red meat eaters so we'd only do stew if there was nothing else! Stuggling to come up with a couple of chicken recipes.

My cousin is coming next week and we're going to have a full day cooking.

I find the best thing to do with chicken is to roast several at once, strip all the meat off and freeze it in bags. Then you can rustle up a quick something with cooked chicken.

I freeze fish pie and a bacon and leek thing in a cheese sauce, and pasta sauce and sausage casserole.

Also think of good easy meals like breaded fish, quiche, BBQ meats and have these ready in the freezer too.

And remember to bake and freeze cakes!

Never thought of cakes!

Just as well my cousin is a good cook!

38 weeks and started mat leave last week, I have filled my freezer with:

Home made:
Fish Pie
Veg Lasagna
Macaroni Cheese
Pasta Bake
Lentil Soup
Pea Soup
Veg Crumble
Veg Pie
Cheese Scones
Fruit Scones
Fruit Crumble
Apple Pie
Chelsea buns (acctually, these came from Asda)
Veg, tomatoey pasta sauce
Veg Curry

Can probably get away without cooking for a fortnight once DC is here.

Have also stocked up on
Fish Steaks
Frozen peas
Big spuds for baking
Baked beans
Tomato soup
Fish fingers
Sausages
Cereal
UHT milk
Soya milk (I hate cow's milk)
Cheese
Part baked bread (normally keep spare bread in freezer but freezer is now full)

Can get bread, milk and eggs easily in a few hundred m walk in village.

Biker - Am relieved that someone has an even fuller freezer than me! I thought I was being completely obsessive grin

non red meat stuff I have frozen...

- tuna pasta (onions, peppers, corguettes, capers & tinned tuna in tom herb sauce)
- chicken & lentil curry
- veg pasta (onions, peppers, mushrooms, corguettes & aubergine in tom herb sauce)
- veg moussaka

Have you tried making spag bowl or chilli with turkey mince? It's lovely.

I've also frozen some sauces to go with prawns (pasta & curry) and have frozen prawns ready to defrost in bowl of water and chuck into the sauce at the last moment.

I am so ready to have this baby now, grr..

Hi JessJess Yes, my nesting seems to be taking the form of cooking. I havn't scrubbed any cupboards or floors, but I guess there is still time. I don't eat meat, so havn't made anything with turkey mince!

I have some very ripe bananas to make into banana cake if I can be bothered to go and get eggs!

I too wish this baby would just get on with it. It's very wiggly, I keep telling it that if it wants more space to play, then to come on out!

Fish pies are good. Anything in a sauce is easy to freeze and reheat later.

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Wed 03-Sep-08 15:52:45

i freeze everything....stir fries, roast dinners, pies, stews....anything but salads and sandwiches

a range of stuff you can put with pasta always good

Meatballs !

muffins are a favourite in this house, as are malteser buns, they can be eaten straight from the freezer if nec! also freeze sausage casserole (sausages, onion, peppers, tomatoes and stock) it heats up really well.
