Freezer Meals – Cook ahead for easy weeknight dinners!

describe the imageA growing trend amongst busy families and working moms is the freezer meal – shop in bulk, cook or assemble recipes in larger quantities, and portion out into meals just the right size for your family.  Pop them in the freezer, and just defrost and do some quick cooking or assembly for a super quick and easy meal.   It’s a bit of work up front, but it pays off on those busy weeknights (or mornings) when there’s just no time to cook a whole meal from scratch! 

There are a ton of options for different types of freezer entrees for breakfast, lunch or dinner, including plenty that use our favorite protein – sausage!   Here are some recipes we found interesting:

Sausage and Peppers

Roasted Red Pepper and Italian Sausage Baked Penne

Sausage and Spinach Quiche

Collections of freezer recipes can be found online or in several books.  Here are a few:
