Making homemade frozen meals...ideas?

I'm sick and tired of buying frozen meals that are not only unhealthy, but costly. Last week I made my husband his own frozen breakfast burritos and they were really good! I'm hoping to start freezing some things that he can heat up on nights I don't want to cook, but I have no idea what kinds of things freeze well. Ideas?

  • For pancakes, which I make a lot, would I just wrap them in plastic wrap and put them in there or is there a better way?

  • I'm not sure on the pancakes...I have been using frugal e-book and it's been good...They do have a freezer menu that I have been thinking about trying.

    You cook it up then freeze it and reheat it when you need it.

  • Caserouls (spell check)LOL pastas..for sure just seperate noodles and sauce prior to freezing..also i make homemade sausage McMuffins and freeze those as well they heat really well. pork chops, steaks, chicken. just place 2 or so in a bag after cooking and freeze...then heat up on defrost in the microwave..hope i could help some..

  • my aunt always did this. when freezing pancakes she would seperate each one with a piece of wax paper. and then wrap them up to freeze.

  • i concur. My mother wraps her foods in wax paper first, then plastic wrap. I have been making squash and freezing it as well (though reading this, it reminded me I need to use wax paper!)
