Ask the Readers: What’s Your Favorite Thing to Freeze?
Posted By Jessica Fisher On August 6, 2011 @ 1:06 am In Freezer Cooking | 23 Comments
Freezer cooking  or batch cooking can be a huge asset to a busy family. Cooking meals in advance and storing them in the freezer for later reheating can save time, money, and unnecessary trips through the drive-thru. But, a common question I hear is what are some good recipes?
I thought this would be a great thing for us to discuss: What’s your favorite thing to freeze?
It’s hard for me to narrow it down to just one recipe; I have so many recipes I love . But, one current favorite at our house is Meatballs . They don’t need to thaw, are quick to reheat, and are extremely versatile. I can douse them in red sauce and serve them over pasta. Or coat them in gravy  and stack them on mashed potatoes. Or I create a Catalan sauce of tomatoes, mushrooms and green olives and serve them with boiled potatoes for Boules de Picolat. The possibilities are endless…. BBQ Meatballs, Meatball Sandwiches, Albondigas….
Need I go on?
My family gobbles these down. And I love to have a stash of Meatballs  in the freezer.
