How To Freeze Individual Meal Portions
Previously, I shared a tip I had about container free storage that involved freezing items with a high moisture content (casseroles, sauces etc.) Click on the link here: container free freezer storage – maximizing freezer space
This is about how to freeze individual items. Here is an example:
I love making my mom’s Stuffed Banana Pepper recipe. It is a lot of work to make these peppers so I try to make a double recipe. Once the peppers are made I lay them out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and place the baking sheet into the freezer. Once the peppers are frozen, I place them in a freezer Ziploc bag.
I also use this method for cookies. I make the cookie dough, scoop the cookies onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place them in the freezer. Once frozen I place them into a freezer Ziploc bag. To reheat just place them frozen onto a cookie sheet and bake them by adding an additional couple minutes.
By freezing food ahead it can help save money and time. Hope these tips help.
