  • Dairy products are hard to freeze. In my experience, things like cream cheese, cottage cheese, and sour cream end up real grainy when they've been frozen. Milk does ok though, you just have to make sure to pour some of it out before you freeze it so it doesn't explode. Lots of things freeze well though. If you google it, there is TONS of info on line about freezing things!

  • Baloney, yes. The others, I do not know about. I never have put them in the freeze before. But my DD says she freezes bread and milk.

  • Bologna, yes. Velveeta, yes. Cream cheese may not hold its consistency. Not sure on the sour cream.
    I freeze milk, bread, veggies, baked goods, cookie dough, leftovers, baked casseroles, homemade pizzas, raw meatloaf mix, soups (not cream soups) and shredded cheese.

  • Bologna and other lunchmeats, yes. I wouldn't freeze sour cream or cream cheese. If you freeze cheese, shred it first.

  • Actually, I freeze cream cheese if it's for using in recipes. Anything where you're going to cook the cream cheese. I wouldn't use it as a spread or in icing.

    My mom uses it as a spread after freezing. Please don't. Naaaaaaaaasty.
